"...Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns!"

"Praise our God, all you His servants, you who fear Him, both small and great...Hallelujah! For our Lord God, Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory!" Revelations 19:5-7

I have been numb today, the MRI was good and I am still hardly believing it. Every so often, I will say, "Thank you, God" then I will think "really?" The MRI did not concentrate on the liver and the doctor just ignores it mostly since the pelvic tumor seems to be the most invasive. That is where the pain is coming from. It had grown and was pressing against the colon and major arteries. This tumor has shrunk about 10% ( I am not sure with centimeters) but the oncologist feels this chemo is really working well. I just pray I can stand the side effects. This was the 3rd round today. I guess each month will tell how it is working and if I can make it with the nausea, fatigue, rash, pain and all. We are adjusting the pain meds so maybe I can sleep more at night.

Our #9 Great was born the 15th and she is just beautiful like the other little girls, and #8 born six weeks ago. I think all our family is through having babies for a while. We pray for them and their parents, for God's grace to help them grown and be filled with His Spirit.

Again I thank God for another time of healing, for giving John and me more time together, for more days to be with family and friends. I am just in awe!!!

    Wow! God is so good--ALL THE TIME! But especially good today since He has given us some more days, months or years we were not sure we'd have with you! Praise HIM, Lord God Almighty. There is just nothing more to say. Nothing can top this show our Heavenly father has decided to write and produce for your fans; your followers. Get some sleep now. Rest easy, and know that the Lord, He is God, and it is He that has made us, and not we ourselves.
    Much love and happy days to come,
    Barbara and Alan Clark

  2. Tears of joy! All I had to read was the first word - Hallelujah! - and I knew prayers were answered! I can't wait to tell Tim and the kids. Natalie even asked her class to pray for you yesterday at school when they offer up prayer intentions as a group. How wonderful for people to see the power of prayer and the goodness of God. We are very, very happy for you and for John. Love you both! The Almeters

  3. Incredibly great, wonderful news, Bev! Our God hears our pleading prayers. Our God lives and we celebrate with you. All the greatgrands and is a wonderful time for you and John. So very happy to read this report. Amen! Glory be to God!!
