We are sisters.....

....in the Lord.

As many of you know, we are participating in one of our Bible Study Sister's funeral tomorrow. After many years of battling cancer, Brenda finally went home to be with her Savior, Jesus. Even though we are sad, we are rejoicing because what we only know in part, she now knows in full. Praise You, Jesus. Thank You for the gift of eternal life.

Those who are available are going to be paying tribute to her tomorrow by singing together "We are sisters, in the Lord," while we show a slide show of all the Beth Moore and other Bible studies and retreats we have done together.

Please pray for the family for comfort and strength at this time. Brenda will be missed!

God is the Best Physician

I had been dealing with some health issues during the months of July and August. I went to the doctor. He ran all kinds of tests and hasn't been able to find anything. I've been praying and praising God for being my Great Physician and Shepherd. I've just been dwelling on His goodness to me. Well, much to my surprise, as quickly as the symptoms came on, they have apparently left. The only thing I can say is "God has healed me". I went from having a "spell" about every other day, to not having any symptoms in about 10 days now. Praise the Lord! He is good. He sent forth His word and healed me! (Psalm 107)

I've been memorizing scripture and doing a lot of praising God - in the good times and in the bad times. I can tell you one thing for sure. Phil. 4:6-7 is true: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God and the peace that passes all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."

It's so true. There isn't any explanation for why my "episodes" are gone, except for the peace that passes all understanding.

Next time you are anxious about something, say scripture over and over to yourself and see if it helps! Anybody else find that to be true?

Best Time Ever....

We had the best time we have ever had in Florida. Everything went great. We were so thrilled to see things through the eyes of an almost 6 year old. He was in awe the whole time.....everything from Disney World to seeing the ocean up close to enjoying time at the pool, to feeding the aligator, to celebrating his birthday a few days early, and all things in between. Our time flew by so fast.
Thank You, Lord, for such a great time! And thanks to everyone who wished us well, gave us great advice and prayed for us!!
