"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
God is constantly reminding me of His great love on a daily basis. Last night I received a text from a friend, Rachel Anderson, and her sister wanted her to forward a text to me that said, "Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well. And the woman was healed at that moment." Matthew 9:22. Within minutes of getting that text I opened up Facebook and found a message from Cari Trotter that said, "Praying and praising God for His healing touch sweet Janet Hudgens Pate!" Both ladies, without knowing it, allowed God to use them to encourage me. "Great is His Faithfulness."
As I was getting ready for work this morning, lots of hair was falling to the ground, enough to make me realize it is "happening" and it is time to shave my head. God reminded me of this, "But even the hairs of your head are all numbered." Matthew 10:30. I figured if He knew how many hairs are on my head, He knew how many were falling out and would give me a peace about shaving them all off. To me it is another reminder that He loves me and this is only temporary and the chemo is working!! To God be the glory great things He has done. We've decided tomorrow night will be the time for Tony and I to shave our heads together. He is an amazing husband that would do ANYTHING for me. Oh, I love him so much!!!!
Here's another huge blessing for the night. We had the family pictures done a couple of weeks back and I have tried to be patient and not bother Bryan about getting on his website to order pictures. Well, yesterday I decided I had given him plenty of time to get the pictures uploaded and I should be able to order prints. I called him because the password wouldn't work, so he told me he messed up and would have to reset it. Tonight came and I reminded him about resetting the password and he made another excuse about work. Tony and I were in the kitchen unloading/reloading the dishwasher and we heard Jordan come in, but never turned around and when we finally turned around, Bryan, Jenna, Jordan and Hudson were hiding behind the picture you see below. I LOVE IT!!!!!! and I love all 4 of them for such an amazing surprise. The blessings continue to fall and for that I am grateful for His great faithfulness.
Here's a pictures just sent to me right before I posted the blog. Robert and Julie Asbill are "Empty Nesters" and she said it took them about 40 tries to get the kitty to wear one of my wristbands. I'm thinking they might be a little bored in their household. :)
Funny thing is her name really is "Kitty"
