After Teresa and I prayed for Uncle Steve this morning on our walk, we got a call from him.
He had just seen the oncologist and he said the hot spot in his neck, where the former tumor was originally, was cancer. My heart sank. The good news is that the oncologist said it can be surgically removed this time, and he will not need chemotherapy or more radiation. I guess there is another hot spot in his shoulder, but it is also a shoulder that has had numerous injuries, so it may be scar tissue. That spot will be biopsied during the surgery as well. Target date for the surgery, which will be in Grand Rapids, in the next couple weeks. He sounded good and hopeful. Keep praying!!
I was feeling kind of numb this morning. I walked for about an hour, taking in the sun, the lizards scooting across my path, the water birds and looking for gators..
I prayed constantly..
when I got "home", my little niece came up to me and said "Hey Aunt Bonnie, "be joyful in everything and never stop praying" I Thessalonians 5: 16,17." It is her memory verse. I told her mine--we started this the first morning I was here...
The Lord used a precious six year old to minister His truth to my heart. It was as if a healing balm had been slathered all over my soul...
Thank You Father..
Then I got on my post from last time and read the comments.
I was given the words to Fanny Crosby's song, His Eye is On The Sparrow, so I sat here, singing it..I love that hymn!!
By the way, T, I knew you would love that birdie picture!!
Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. I Thessalonians 5: 16,17
He is faithful,
