The rainbow ...

Here's the rainbow that was supposed to be on the last post, but it would not load for some reason. We know what the rainbow represents to the believer. This one was remarkable in that it was complete from end to end with only my big tree blocking the view of the middle. Bryan saw it first and came inside to get us. It was one of those awe inspiring moments we all shared.
Like the song says, "I didn't sleep at all last night". It's just the night owl in me I guess. I still got up with the kids and cooked breakfast, took my meds, cleaned up and headed to Target to pick up the Xeloda for cycle #2 along with some other meds. Mr. Neely (hope I spelled it right) was there at the pharmacy doing his pharmacy thing. He has been very helpful through all of this. It is good to know someone with that type of knowledge when you need it.
I was finishing up my purchase at the register and my 'Brazillian' wallet broke (i.e. 'rubber band'). So I gathered the contents back together and put it all back in the pouch I use to hold that kind of stuff - I guess you could call it a 'man purse'. The whole time I am thinking to myself, 'I wish I had a rubberband'. Well, God being God, I got to my car and loaded the groceries into the back seat. I then went to return the cart to the buggy area and noticed a big, thick new rubberband in the bottom of my grocery cart. Now, I know that is a coincidence to some, but not to me. God sees all the little details - the thing I needed was already in my possession - I just didn't 'see' it until I needed it. You could really go deep on this one.
The anger/mad thing from yesterday is cool. I think it was med. related. Sometimes those things agitate when there is no other apparent reason to get nervous or upset. Thanks for the
e-mails and the prayer support - I know it helped.
We had so much rain in Central around 2 -pm that I thought we were going to float away! Remember I watered my yard not too long ago and it has rained 3 times since then.
Please continue to be in prayer for:
Wil's dad, Mr. Howell - he is taking chemo treatments for a recurrence.
Robin's cousin Barbara - small bowel transplant - that she would progressively get better.
Jill Hymel - my friend from work, also taking chemo following surgery, with some good reports recently.
Dr. Hackler - also from my work, he is undergoing treatments and has some good reports the last I heard.
And of course, yours truly. We are believing for 100% healing in Jesus name to the glory of God.
May God give all of us courage to live life daily regardless of our circumstances.
"In Him we live and move and have our being" (Apostle Paul)

Awesome rainbow George, and what better time to see it too! All evidence again of a real God.
Remember the song "He's got the whole world in His hands?" well it's true, even rubberbands!! He is soooo awesome that way to provide us with the simple things...that is just the kind of Lord we serve.
And hey go ahead and get deep on that one...love to hear it!!!
I am glad you are doing better!
