Just wanted to say 'Good Morning' and let you know that I am here. It is a crazy day....house to finish cleaning as many people arrive this evening, errands to run, final appointment at 4:15 with Plastic surgeon so that he can mark me for surgery tomorrow, church tonight and then family arrives around 9:00PM.
I had wanted to post Part 2 of my journey, and hope to do so before days end. We'll see how it goes. I should also know surgery time sometime this afternoon. I'll post it here, as many have been asking.
Thank you so much for all of your cards received, phone calls, emails and comments on FB and here. Please know how much I love you all. I'm so sorry I can't respond back to all of you personally and tell you how much you mean to me. God is carrying me in His mighty grip today.
As I lingered long with Him this morning in prayer and reading my Bible....He ministered again His attributes to me....His character.....who He is. He is a loving and gracious God. He gives good gifts and His mercy is new every morning. He is and will continue to carry me.
In Psalm 44:3 He spoke these words to my heart:
"For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; But it was Your (God's) right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, Because You favored them."
"Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God."
He will deliver me. He will fight this battle for me. I can't. I have no power over cancer....but God does. He will fight. And I rest in the fact that the battle has already been won. My eyes look to my Savior today, and will rest there as I wait. I stand confident, yet so very weak and fragile. Thank you for praying for me today.
I'll update more later.......
