"For God so loved the world..."

Today was a good day, got lots of sewing done, and John felt good. He is counting the days until he can take a real shower ( five more days). They glued the incision closed and water will wash away the glue, so that is the reason for no showers. (there are inside stitches, of course). Our cousins in Missouri have a teen age granddaughter who was kicked by a horse and had to have 50-60 stitches in her leg--thank goodness there was no nerve damage or infection to her leg, but really will be a big scar. Day to day, we never know what will happen. Each day is a blessing in itself, and we take these days for granted. I remember Daddy and Mama says how quickly the days go by ( as they were older) and now I am older than they were before they died. In fact John and I have both lived longer than all our parents.
I am going to a new class on Wednesday night at church--called "living fearless in a fearful world". One of her key verses is one of my favorites--Isaiah 49:16..."See I have engraved you in the palm of my hand..." If God has us engraved in His hand, how can we fear anything that is coming..I have to remind myself of this and not get nervous as the new chemo is coming along in a week..I am fearful of the unknown, the side effects, and have to remind myself that God loves us and I am in His hand!

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

  1. Bev,
    I'm reading "Why?" by Anne Graham Lotz. I found it quite by accident at the library. As I read the first page, I realized I did not find this book by accident. I'd love to sit in on the Wed night class with you.
    Praying you will enjoy the rest of this week.
    Thank you for sharing as always,
