|Youth Camp 2013-Allaso Ranch|
I was thankful to be back in my own bed last night and to be home with Tony. I was able to get a great nights rest and actually slept 12 hours and I am so grateful for that. I had chemo this afternoon and they always do lab work first to make sure my counts are high enough before receiving treatment. The news from the lab results showed very low platelets and the nurse had to wait to see if my doctor wanted to treat me today. I told the nurse I had been at camp all week and felt great and didn't feel like the lab results reflected how I truly felt. The doctor gave permission to treat and I am thankful everything went so smoothly. I was just texting a friend and she made this comment "lab results comes from a machine and miracles come from our God."
I did consider coming home after chemo and resting, but my heart wanted to be at youth tonight to hear students sharing about camp. God continues to give me so much grace and strength and I know if I would have come home, I would have taken a nap and probably woken up not feeling so good. I am thankful I chose to go to work this afternoon and stay for the youth share night. My heart was blessed to see how God did amazing things in student's lives. He is always faithful!!
Here is the song we sang at every service during camp and it is God's reminder to me through out this whole past year and half that God will come through-Always. I will continue to lift my eyes to the Lord, my help comes from Him! Several ladies I know have recently been diagnosed with cancer and I pray this song will minister to them as it did to me a year and half ago and continues to every time I hear it.
"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
