God is on the throne!
No matter who wins, Jesus is still at the right hand of the Father and God is still on the throne.
I just wanted to remind all of us of that TRUTH tonight. So much of what we have heard
and read is LIES.
Just the grown ups got to go out today..it was a blessing and a healing balm.
We went to an authentic Mexican restaurant, in downtown Sarasota, and there were little birdies hopping around, on the restaurant's floor, begging for their lazy lunches. My food and theirs, was fantastic!
While I was waiting for my Starbuck's coffee ( I am being spoiled rotten here), I called my brother.
He had a PET scan last week. I was checking up on him.
Words like metastatic, high activity/uptake, and new "spots" next to his clavicle, hit my ears--HARD.
You have to understand, he was told, he would have a "100%" recovery. He was told they would be
able to kill it, all of it, etc etc. I did all I knew to do.
I prayed. I prayed God's Word all over him, while my brother in law was driving us towards Siesta Key Beach..I prayed he would know God's peace. I prayed he would stay in today, meaning he would not allow his mind to run ahead and play out all those awful scenarios..
I prayed he would not fear.
The trip to Siesta Keys was not really planned...my brother in law decided after the news, to take me there.
Soft, white sand met my feet. Warm waves caressed my toes. The sand I can't even begin to describe!!
The pictures say it all..
Pray for my brother please and his wife and 4 sons. Pray for the Dr to have God's wisdom Thursday.
Tim and Nathan head home tomorrow too--pray for their safety. I head home next Wednesday, the 12th.
He is faithful,
