Day four ..

Tomorrow will be day 4 and I will get the IV chemo. Day 11 is the second scheduled treatment. So far so good. Still standing in faith for 100% top to bottom healing - by His stripes I am healed.
I am up late due to the Decadron pre-meds - ya'll remember that story. I am learning.
My eyes were getting really dry and tired when I remembered a beautiful Keith Green song. You should hear it - not just the words. It is a classic. You have to read it with a slow pace.

"my eyes are dry, my faith is old
my heart is hard and my prayers are cold
and I know how, I aught to be
alive to You and dead to me.

Oh what can be done, with an old heart like mine?
soften it up, with oil and wine.
the oil is You and Your Spirit of love
please wash me anew in the wine of your blood.

All of Keith Green's music is classic christian listening that really captures the heart of God.

Here is a prayer request by the parents of one of our Brave Soldiers in Iraq. He was shot in the head Sunday. He is defending Freedom and the right to assemble and worship freely.

"I wanted to get everyone to pray for my son Chad. Today-Sunday, I got a call from the Army that my son had been shot in the head. He was in a Humvee going through Falujah fighting and a gang of militia fighters fired on the Humvee and hit Chad in the head. The driver got him out of the city and took him to Baghdad. He was in fatal condition, but now has been upgraded to stable critical. His dad and I are on standby to fly to Washington and then on to Germany as soon as the military calls us to go. The Army is trying to stabilize
him enough to fly to Germany and at that time we will leave. Please pray that my son will not have brain damage and that he will be restored and healed by the blood ofJesus, and the grace of God. I ask for you to pass this prayer request on so there will be many prayer warriors praying for him. Thank you so much and I will try to keep you updated on his condition".
God Bless,Vicky Field - Granbury, Texas

We will be praying for Chad. "To him who has been given much, much is required". Many of us who call upon the Name of the LORD have received "much" through Christ's Sacrifice on the Cross. We must put ourselves in remembrance of how life was in the "B.C. days" (before Christ). I for one can tell you the old life has nothing to offer me that can compare to Jesus and the fellowship of believers. Jesus said He "came that we might have life and have it (life) more abundantly." He didn't say a non-believer could not have abundance in this life, but rather that a converted heart given over completely to God the Father through Christ would have a life of more abundance. An abundance of the things that really matter and are more Eternal. Amen.

I have some more pictures, but once again this system will not upload them for some reason.
I'll try tomorrow (Tuesday).
God Bless and be a blessing. GW

Good morning, George...
I had you on my heart this morning. Did you happen to see the amazingly beautiful sunrise shining through the soft rain this morning in Central? It took my breath away. I had just read in Psalms..."the heavens are telling the glory of God"...Be blessed today, my brother, and may the glory of the Lord shine on you today...

George, I went outside to get another look at this beautiful morning and was declaring the glory of the Lord over my family...and you came to mind again along with Malachi 4:2..."But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with Healing in its wings, and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall."
May the Son of righteousness arise over you today,George...with Healing in His wings...
