Thank you God for watching over my life...

My daughter in law knitted me a tiny shawl--to remind me that I am "covered in prayer", to carry in my Bible or purse. What a precious gift. So many friends tell me or email me that I am being prayed for and this means so much. I have such a feeling of comfort and being enclosed in God's hands or arms and being cared for. I do not pray for myself enough. Is this something we are taught to do? I do not remember being taught to pray for me. Is that selfish? If it is, I pray God will forgive me for selfishness and I am praying for ME as I pray for others! We people are so weak and there are so many special needs right now. So many friends are suffering cancer, wrecks, new babies' needs, illnesses, heart problems, and all frailties known to mankind.

"The Lord will keep you from all harm--He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your comings and goings both now and forevermore." Psalm 121:7-8

My fingers are no better and hurt so badly. I have six open cracks on five fingers. Both thumbs are bad and it makes buttoning really difficult. I have just made myself eat, the past several days, but nothing tastes good. I am not complaining, just explaining. I am getting excited about decorating our new apartment for Christmas. I always had so much decorating and I had to really pare down, so this will be a challenge , fun to look forward to this.

Meantime, lots of sewing and work to do. I am so thankful I can work. I am thankful for strength. Thank you God for watching over me.

  1. Bev,
    Have you tried (*yes, you've tried everything!) Aquafor for your fingers? Good stuff. Also Udderly Smooth and another is another good thing.
    I have one more week of Xeloda...7 more days. At least that's how it stood at the last appt. I will scans done sometime in December. I am praying, praying those scans are clar. The big year for colon cancer people is Year 2. If it is to return, that is when that usually we want it to be as clear as a blue Abq sky.
    I pray for you, Bev. You have been so much a part of my life and will ever continue.
    I'll keep you posted. God heal your precious fingers and may those scans be cancer free and your treatments be as kind as they can possibly be. love and many prayful blessings, kathryn
    love kathryn
