I choose not to believe the paper work and will continue to take one day at a time. I received so many text, emails, and messages today of people that were praying for me. Some responded that they couldn't sleep last night, so they prayed for me. Several sent me scriptures and had a song sent to me. There is no doubt in my mind that God is sustaining me each day and showing me such favor and grace to face each new day through the faithfulness of others. Here are a few verses sent to me today from some friends:
Psalms 16:18 "I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With Him at my right hand, I will not be shaken"
Mark 11:22-24 "Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, be taken up and thrown into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
I had a great afternoon and evening with the family again and so thankful to have life today with all of them.
Below are a few pictures of our day together:

One last thing I don't want to forget to share. My brother and sister in law were going with us to Hawaii in a few weeks and since we cancelled the trip, we were praying that they could get their money back. My doctor wrote notes for both of us to get refunds on our airfare. My brother contacted American Airlines on Thursday and he was told it could take up to four weeks for a response. Yesterday he received an email letting him know that he would receive vouchers for the full amount purchased and he could use them not only for himself and his wife but for anyone. Tony called yesterday too and was told the same thing. Originally my brother was told he had one year from when he purchased the tickets to use the vouchers but the email stated that he had one year from when the airlines refund the vouchers to reuse them. The funny thing is, the note my doctor wrote was never faxed or emailed and the American Airlines took my brother's and Tony's word and took care of the whole reimbursement. It makes me thankful to see there are great companies out there that take care of others and can waive policies but it really makes me grateful to know that God is the One that took care of this whole issue. It's just another reminder to me that He works ALL things out for good for those that love Him.
Here is the song sent to me today and it rings true tonight in my spirit.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
