Christie and I went to middle and high school together and played soccer for years. This year has been most definitely the HARDEST year of Christie's life. It is her story to tell and maybe one day she will tell it to you the whole story. For right now I will tell you what is going on in her life this summer. She lives in Greensboro and works in a hospital in Burlington (30 minutes north or G'boro). This past winter she was diagnosed with lymphoma- a blood cancer. Just this week she started her chemo and the dr's are hopeful that it will be gone by august! This is the first good news she has heard in awhile. Through all her hardships this year, another high school friend, Erin invited Christie to church, Westover in Greensboro. Christie began to go and recieved Christ as her savior and Lord. It is amazing to hear her story and then hear her say, but all of these terrible things brought her to the foot of the cross and gave her a peace and joy she never knew. She is so joyful and it is so humbling and inspiring to be around her. I really enjoyed my time with my precious friend.
