"God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all."...

I John 1:5, then it continues in verse 7.."But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin."

On Wednesday nights we eat out after church with some of our church friends. We pray for one another, and life is tough, no matter what. Jesus did not tell us when we belong to Him that life would be a bunch of roses. He promised He would be there with us always. There is no bad thing on this earth that we hardly have not gone through as a group. But we love each other, and pray and stand by each other.

Tomorrow is my next chemo. I dread the idea of collective poor health. I dread the idea of feeling worse than this past month. I can stand it if it gets no worse than this (except for the pain that I would love to not have)

There is a great family favorite jello salad (even for those who do not like jello) that is not your typical "jello". Here is the recipe:
2 (3 ox) boxes red jello, 2 cups boiling water. mix and let cool a little. Add 1 can whole berry cranberry sauce and stir this up. Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Add 1 cup sour cream and stir until swirly. congeal. This is good with any meal. Think of all the congealed salads that are taken to "bowl dinners" or church picnics. Enjoy!

    Dear Bev,
    We pray for you every day of this world, but always on chemo days we kick it up a little. And we will be doing just that. I wish all of us could each take just a small portion of your pain and make it ours till it was all gone from you and shared by those of us who are stronger and healthier to manage it better. I want you to have pain free days and nights so much, but if it's the chemo at work, and it's healing you, then I can't wish to take that away. We all just love you so much and want BETTER days ahead for John and you. Praying they will come soon.
    Much love, Mega prayers, and Many blessings,
    Barbara and Alan
