What a wonderful day today. I had 3 buddies from College show up for lunch and it was such a great time of prayer, remembering the good old days, etc. They were and still are big brothers in Christ who helped guide me along the way and were such an encouragement today as always. I know the pictures looks like a local police line up and also one of those strange cell phone "bar" commercials (tall to shortest) - take your pick. God is so good to us in so many ways.
Thanks also to everyone for the love and happy birthday wishes offered under the comments. Comments are always welcomed, but not required. I also appreciate the hours of intercession and prayer offered up to heaven on my / our behalf - thank you so much for that support, too.
The pain is being managed well, thanks be to God. I have about two weeks till I am finished this chemo treatment and then we are open for the direction of the Lord - we even had a family prayer meeting tonight at the house with me, Robin and the kids about God giving us specific direction as to what to do next. We are believing for some serious physical changes in the positive direction to have happened. We will see with the next PET/CT scan (about 3 weeks from now, hopefully). Keep believing with us. Thanks.
We love you all and only hope that we can one day have the privilege of loving and serving some of you, as you have us through this affliction and trial. Continue to be a blessing wherever you go.

1 John 3:1-2 How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, {2 Or when it is made known} we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

What's up haven't heard from you for three days? Give us an update. Miss your blogging everyday gets me going in the morning. Good cup of coffee and a good word from a brother who could have for anything more besides the love of the Lord.

Did you mention to your boys that there's Chi Alpha here at SLU again? ;) Be praying for Philip & Jennifer Babineaux, they're looking to come full time to run SLUXA starting next fall.

For King & Kingdom,
