"The Lord will fight for you..."

Exodus 14:14..."The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still."

I think I am constantly figuring what to do next...I rarely am "still" and I could easily miss the Lord or "that still small voice" that could tell me what to do. John and I agreed that I am more tired than I was a few months ago. It could be cumulative effects of the chemo which is still with me, age catching up with me???or the effects of the cancer which I really have no symptoms from (that I know of). I know I am slowing down. Maybe I will listen better if I am "quiet". I pray for Him to keep John and me in His care.

One of our grandsons and his family will be here tomorrow and that is so exciting! We will do "Christmas" with them (only 6 weeks late). At Christmas, all their family had the crud that went around (some of them twice), and John and I both had it, then we left for Florida, so this is the first time we have been able to get together. The little ones and I will make some cookies (candy cane cookies which are like "rolling out snakes" then form a candy cane) and bake them. I have some Christmas paper plates and napkins so this should be fun. Dates on the calendar make no difference as long as family is together! I regularly pray for the five (soon to be six) of them that God will keep them safe and well.

    Hi Bev,
    I just couldn't wait for tonight's (Saturday's) post to tell you what the weatherman just said! Mid week, Wednesday, the systems are the classic set-up for an accumulating snow! Bev, this is it, your six inch snow! And then, next week, he said that we should begin to see the end of winter, moderating temperatures, so you'll be able to get out soon and dig in the dirt and work with your plants. Wow! God is answering some of my small prayers for you, so maybe He is answering my big ones, too. New chemo on the way? My heart is dancing! Love you sister, and I hope I get to see you tomorrow morning.
    God is holding John and you in the palm of His hand,
    Barbara and Alan
