Wednesday

Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

~1 Peter 2:2-3 (NIV)~

 

 

Today, I want to share a brief update on the last two days of appointments with David.

Monday, we met with a different oncologist because David’s oncologist was in a different clinic that day.  We were told there is a possible change in treatment since the Procrit is not working as hoped.  David’s oncologist will make the decision, possibly next week.  We have talked to some health professionals and read up on it to learn about the possible treatment.  We are waiting to see what the doctor and God have planned.

Tuesday, we saw our regular eye doctor as a follow up to the emergency visit to the eye clinic.  David lost some of his vision in one eye Friday a week ago.  We know now he is regaining sight in that eye, but time will tell how much it improves.  We heard the term “eye stroke” for the first time.  That brought some new questions.  We are optimistic about the next appointment in four weeks.  We are not at the point of seeing the retina specialist again at this point.

God has provided wonderful and intelligent professionals for David.  We have been blessed.  Despite all the problems, we are enjoying seeing God guide us through them.  God is using many family members, church friends, long-time friends, and neighbors to encourage us regardless of the issues.  We are so thankful He is in charge and creates the plan.  We are making the most of the journey.  Thank-you to all who have helped us travel on this journey in so many ways.

Monday

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

~2 Corinthians 4:6~

“This little light of mine. I’m going to let it shine.”

“Hide it under a bushel, no!”

“Shine all over Kentwood.”

“Let it shine ’till Jesus comes!”

Today, let’s pray for Debbie Wilkinson as she is at MD Anderson.  One test trial will end today and another test trial will begin.  Pray for Debbie to maintain her wonderful attitude and spirit!  Her “light” shines brightly every time I see her.
Last night at church, we talked about El Shaddai, which means “God is sufficient”.  He is!  If you doubt that, use your Bible, phone, or computer to look up verses that tell us God is sufficient.  Find some that speak to your heart and claim them for your own.  Write them in your Bible, around your house, and in your heart!
Two weeks ago, the lab tech who drew David’s labs gave his a bracelet that says “Never Give Up!”.  I wear it because it doesn’t fit him.
Pray for me as we go back today.  Pray that I might pray of each patient at the cancer center that I see.  May each one of them know that “God is enough” to meet every need they have!
Read and Write the Bible Today – Luke 6: 27-31
The Sunday morning church service from my church is available on the church’s Facebook page, “Kentwood First Baptist Church”.  It is available live at 10:30 on Sundays and stays there for you to see as you choose.  I always share it, so it is available on my FB page and the pages of several others.
There is “work in progress”, so please overlook any little problems you see.  They are being addressed so the final product is of good quality.  In the meantime, I know you can get the message and be blessed through the preaching and the singing.
Several other local churches are also broadcasting live, so check them out too.  You will be able to participate in “church” all week long.  I love to use and to see how others use technology to share Jesus with others.  You might find a way to do so too!

Sunday

A psalm of David.

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.

He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.

~Psalm 23:1-3 (NIV)~

 

 

 

Pray for Jimmy Harrell as he faces a major surgery.  Pray for his church, family, and friends as they travel this journey with him.

 

 

 

Hopefully, you’ll be in Sunday School and church this morning.  If you are not able to be there, be sure to check your television and computer for good options.  FBC, Kentwood will transmit there morning worship at 10:30 this morning.  You are invited to worship with them.  That’s what we will be doing!
