"The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us..."

This is the day before Easter, really the greatest christian day, more than Christmas, because Jesus rose from the dead and gave us eternal life. We who have serious diseases probably realize this blessing more than the average person because when things are going well, we pretty much take life for granted.
A dear friend of ours, Gene, called (from Florida) to tell us he now has esophageal cancer, and is facing surgery and chemo. He and his wife have two teenagers; they are a wonderful christian family and he asked that I tell everyone to please put him and his family on their prayer list and on their church prayers. He believes God will give him strength, and life and safety according to His will. Gene really has a testimony before he even gets into this ordeal. My heart breaks every time I hear of a new cancer "victim". I tell them and others that once you have this, you "live from scan to scan". Mine has been "cured" or in remission four times, but has come back these times. Being afraid is normal and
this is our earthly part of us. All our faith and believing cannot remove the human little bit of our brain that says "what if it comes back". I try and try to accept the Bible's word and stay faithful to promises that God will always do what is best for us. And I do believe He will always take care of us.
John 1:14 continues, "We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full or grace and truth."
