This morning's service went really good. We saw many people we have not seen in years. They wanted to be a part of the process and it was great to have them with us during the recording. Now comes the hard part: which songs will be on the CD and which ones will not. Can I tell you, I'm glad that is not my job. How do you choose? They were all so good. May the Lord be the guide.
Another rainy day in Central. We were invited to eat at my brother-in-law's in-laws for their daughter's belated birthday party. Got it? Fried catfish and bass along with hush puppies and coleslaw. I ate just enough. It was delish. We always enjoy their company when together.
My parents are planning on coming in tomorrow afternoon and we are looking forward to their arrival.
I think I have decided to deny treatment until I can get a port put in since my arm vein is still looking rough from last weeks treatment. I don't know how well that will go over with my Dr. , however. Robin was kind of "iffy" about it since treatment has already started. We will see.
I can tell that I am on chemo again - not giving in to side effects, it's just the medicine doing what it is supposed to do. When you feel the things I am feeling, it means that something is working.
I am trying to stay disciplined and maintain my overt and intentional reliance on Jesus and the Word - regardless of how I feel. That applies to everyday living. Do you go to work when you don't feel like it? You probably do. Do you go the extra mile when you don't feel like it? You probably do. Whatever we do, we must do by faith, for 'without faith', the scriptures say, 'it is impossible to please God' (Hebrews 11:6). The neat thing about that verse is that it is followed by a list of those who went before us, trusted God, and saw miracles happen.
By faith, this is going to be a good week.
By faith, you are going to have a good week.
In Jesus Name.
