Jars of clay

"We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us..." 2 Corinthians 4:7
This week I have certainly felt like a "jar of clay" with weird pains, nausea, and thinking "can I really start that chemo again (patupalone-like chemo)?" I really know God showed me so plainly that this last one was not the right one, with the tumors growing as I took it. So, I am praying that if this next one is not the right one, the insurance company will not approve it, then we will find another one and know this was also not right!
We had young friends come to see us tonight. His job (company) is a Chimney Sweep. We met them about 23 years ago. Our Johny died 25 years ago this last weekend. We met this couple a year and a half later...and they were born the same year as Johny!Her parents were deceased very young and his parents live in Seattle. We just instantly became good friends and almost child/parent relationship. We have traveled together, gone to craft fairs, eaten out many times, enjoyed each other's gardens, and just visited lots over the years. One time (when we had the B&B) she came by and I introduced her as our daughter, then in the conversation it came up how we met, and I had to do lots of explaning! Actually we met, when we had a chimney fire and he was the one we called to repair our chimney. God does wondrous things in putting us in the right place at the right time to meet friends. So when God had Johny to be in heaven, he gave us two new friends who have been such a blessing .
