"Family Time=Healing"

I can't think of a better place to be than with my family.  Every moment I'm with any of my family, I feel peace and God's healing over me.  God has blessed me with such an incredible supportive family and I cherish every moment with them.  Our twin grand daughters that live in California are with us this week for their Spring Break.  The fact that they choose to come stay with us at the age of 14, brings us great joy.  I may be partial but they are the most amazing teenage girls.  They love Jesus, are modest, respectful, grateful and just appreciate hanging out with their G-Pa and G-Ma.  We spent the evening at Bryan and Jenna's house eating and just enjoying time together laughing, playing video games and even making a few prank phone calls.  God is so good and I never want to take these moments for granted.

Tomorrow I go for my 2nd round of new chemo.  The twins and Jordan are going with me.  This past week God has been so gracious to me.  I've had several different side effects but He gave me grace to face each new day.  I was able to wake up each morning, breath, talk, walk, eat, drink and enjoy life that He is blessing me with.  Each new day is a gift from Him. 

Yesterday our pastor spoke on Psalms 37:4-5 "Trust in the Lord, and do good; and he will give you the desires of your heart.  Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act."   He spoke about not quitting on this journey we are on with the Lord and to trust Him.  How many times do we want to quit and never realize the blessings of the Lord were right around the corner for us.  What if Job would have quit trusting in God and turned his back?  I'm thankful that he didn't quit and we can see how his outcome was far greater than he could have ever expected.  To be honest, I've had moments of wanting to quit, but God shows up and sends me His reminders that He has never left me or forsaken me.  I will continue to trust Him on this journey and know that He has a far greater outcome for me than I could ever imagine. 

"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
