God can do more than we ask...

We have a dear friend, married and has two teen agers, just diagnosed with esophageal cancer, starting chemo and radiation and facing surgery in about a month. He was not a smoker, just one of those things. Please pray for our friend ,Gene, and his family! I hurt so badly when I hear of anyone facing this cancer! I just hurt to know what all they will go through. I have had another feeling lousy day, no energy, short of breath, in fact John asked me if I wanted to go on with this chemo. This was supposed to be an "easy" one!!!There is NO easy chemo; they are all rat poison and designed to kill! Obviously the purpose is to kill the cancer without killing the patient! Twice I have nearly died from the chemo, so I don't think I will let it go that far this time.
So back to the memories of the old Falls Creek Falls---In the mid 1980's, they revamped the park into a lovely, golf course, Inn, cabins on the lake resort, etc. that appeals to many but we still preferred the old part of the park. Usually several families would camp together, kids everywhere, hunting firewood. One night we got there late, found our camp site and lots of pine boards left for fire wood. The kids drug up lots of wood...can you imagine now many snakes there had to be in that wood???I guess we scared them off!
We would climb to the foot of the Falls, on an old cable attached to the top of the bluff, extending to the foot of the falls. John would tie Johny to himself with a rope and they would climb down, Cathy would be tied to me and Jimmy would climb down by himself. We started doing this when they were about 4,7 and 9 years old. At the bottom of the falls was a huge rock and we would climp up on that rock for lunch. We did this alot until the park build the new area and also removed the cable, building steps down to the bottom. It is just not the same!
Of course, we will never climb down to the bottom again, either way. but it sure was fun doing this! We never fell, or had an accident. What a spot of heaven on earth.
"Now to Him who can do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations, for ever and ever, amen." Ephesians 3:20-21
