"We will serve the Lord"

Joshua 24:14-15 "Now fear the Lord and serve Him with all faithfulness. .....choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, ....But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord."

I love this faith statement from Joshua. Part of this was on our kitchen wall at our last house. I wanted to have it here but really do not have a space for it. I will have to work on that!

This is day 6 of this chemo and I really do not feel much better than day 2 when it kicked in. Exhaustion is the main problem, and arthritis really got my hands the last two days. Also fingers are cracked open again. My hair started growing back about March and should be long enough to be wig less but it is not growing back as usual. I think this is all that is wrong with me that I talk about. I don't dwell on the cancers and choose to mostly ignore them. I take great delight and praise to God for just being alive! Nothing in my list can take away this joy of life! John had a good eye doctor visit this week and he is no worse. That is something to be very thankful for.

I look at our two new little girls (on facebook) every day and thank God for them, their perfection and beauty. We are so proud of all the "greats" and how well they are growing up.

So we, and all our family, chooses to serve our Lord.

    Hi Bev,
    Just want to remind you once again that we are praying for you daily. You are never far from our minds and always in our hearts.

    I love this verse, too. It's always been one of my favorites. Did you have it painted on your wall as kind of a mural? My step sister painted verses around the top edge of her kitchen wall like a border. I surely wish I were so talented as you painters!

    So glad John had a good report from the eye doctor. Jacob said he spotted you on Sunday, but he couldn't get close enough to say "hi". Our children love John and you dearly. Get to feeling good now, because I want to have all the girls over for lunch soon, and you promised you would come with Becky.

    Love and hugs,
