“And now, here I sit beside my dying wife.
I don’t say those words lightly. As a matter-of-fact, I haven’t said them at all. But my beautiful bride has said them to me in these couple of days. Her pain and discomfort has continued to increase daily and so has the morphine to help her be comfortable. The dosage she’s needed to keep the pain away has quadrupled in the last four days.
I’d like to tell you that she’s doing great and is going to beat this thing. But I can’t.”

Rory Feek writes these words on his latest blog about life as Country duo Joey+Rory, entitled: “This Life I Live.

Flashback Friday

In 2008, Joey and Rory finished third place in Season One of the American Reality Show Competition, Can you Duet On CMT. The show was produced by FremantleMedia, the same company that produces American Idol. This Flashback Friday moment was when America fell in love with this young couple.

Please continue to pray for them as they face Joey’s battle with terminal cancer. They have both shown true courage and amazing faith during this time. They have inspired us all by their measurements of true and everlasting love for God and each other.

 

Take a look at their video submission to the show below.
