"Shout for joy to the Lord..."

worship the Lord with gladness....Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise...The Lord is good and His love endures forever..."Psalm 100 parts of verses.......God is so good and He does take such good care of us. We are so blessed and all our needs are met. When I got to the Sara
cannon Center today, my BP was 61/50, dangerously low, and I did not realize this . The nurse immediately gave me a large bag of fluids, then they canceled the chemo, listened to how I felt, the doctor came in and sent me over to the hospital for an ultrasound. They found a large gallstone, which will probably be pulled out through the throat/stomach...I WILL be asleep!This will be less invasive than the removal of the gallbladder even thru the 3 "buttonholes" in the abdomen. I am also on a strong antibiotic for 10 days for the whatever caused the fever. The third chemo will be before or after when ever this is done. I never know what is doing when!
Back to Israel, when we crossed the area from Jordan into the Jericho area (Is this the West Bank now?) and we crossed the Jordan River, there were soldiers with machine guns escorting us over the river. We also went through similar soldiers going from Bethlehem to Palestine. These areas are only a few miles but very intensely held as property.
We went up the "Kings Highway" from Jerusalem to Petra, the city made of carved stone!In Matthew 19, this may be the area Jesus went into. I have found this passage in times past but cannot find it now. The entire city, all the buildings were carved from the outside in, looking like Greek or Roman temples, from the rocks...incredible!This was a major trading post in early days because you could only get into here through narrow rocks! We went into here on horses, only one horse wide in places. I am not sure all my facts are correct---too many years ago, but the memories are fun, even if not totally right. More on this tomorrow...
