"I have overcome the world..."

Jesus tells us in John 16:33 "...in this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

I have found out three more friends have cancer. It is such a scourge on this earth. Jesus says "you will have trouble" so why are we so surprised when "bad things happen to good people"?

I feel sorry for bald headed men because your head sure does get cold with no hair! I really miss my hair. I sure hope the ground hog with right, because this has been such a cold bad winter!

This blog just said I have lost this post...sometimes they are wrong...we will see. I know of one acquaintance who does not want to do chemo...I might reach that point in the future, but not yet. I sure hope my doctor can find another one for me to try...one that is not so harsh.

    First of all, Bev, you didn't lose the post. I was worried when Wednesday's post didn't show up last night, so I'm glad to see that it was just lost in cyberspace. Maybe that is where Thursday night's post is as well. (-: And secondly, I am so glad to hear that you aren't giving up on chemo. I understand why you had to give up on this one, but please don't ever throw in the towel. God has kept you on this earth for many special reasons, and I think I am one of them. You have been the light in my day through the storms in my life in recent months. I know others feel similar feelings. If you throw in the towel, I guess I'll just have to throw in mine as well! I hate so badly to hear that you have heard of others with cancer. Two of Alan's cousins, one just recently, have cancer. And I've connected with Sara Walker on Caringbridge; oh my goodness, what a delightful young woman she is! Cancer is the scourge that is infecting our planet, but we ARE going to beat it. As Sara likes to say, "We are going to kick cancer's booty!" I love you girlfriend! And if you are so sick of the cold weather, I'd better quit praying for you to get that six inch snow! Put on your wig and your hat, and go build a snowman. See you on Sunday.
    Love,
    Barbara and Alan
