"A New Chapter Begins"

A new chapter in my life will begin this week as we embark on a journey to MD Anderson.  I have been asked if I was nervous or scared and I am thankful to say, "No I am not."  I am actually excited to see all that God has for me.  My first appointment will be Tuesday morning at 9:30am.  I was told to expect to be there for several days and I'm not sure what the plan will be, but one thing I do know, God already has the plan figured out and all I have to do is to continue to trust Him. 

God's love has been poured out over me this weekend and my heart continues to be overwhelmed by His goodness and grace.  My prayers is that I won't get so caught up with others blessing me, that I forget to be a blessing to others.  There are people all around us daily that are hurting and if we keep our eyes and ears open, God will show us their needs. 

I had two of my dearest friends that I grew up with come in town on Saturday.  They drove 8 1/2 hours to hang out with me for the day and had to leave early Sunday morning to return home.  Judy Lynn and I became friends in 4th grade and Deborah Mae and I became friends in 10th grade. (Debbie claims I was mean to her in 9th grade so that is why we weren't friends until the 10th grade)  We've always called each other by our first and middle names.  We did not go to school together but attended the same youth group and have remained friends throughout all these years.

We had a large group of people come to our home tonight to pray over us before we leave tomorrow. 
Ephesians 3:16-19 "that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith-that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."  Apart from God, I would have no way of understanding how much love has been poured out over me and my family.  Just when I think we've been blessed more than I can comprehend, more blessings continue to fall upon us.  We had so many come to our home tonight and pray and several brought gifts with them for me to take to Houston. 

Judy Lynn gave me an amazing purse and Deborah Mae bought me a new pair of shorts.  Maureen Mangrum made me my first quilt ever!!  I know she prayed over the quilt while she was making it.  My heart is full tonight from such love and grace!!  Others brought me snacks, roses and a new testament Bible to give to someone that I may have a chance to share Jesus with while I'm away.  Thank you to all that came to our home tonight to pray and for so many that couldn't come but continue to pray for me.  My life has been strengthened and will be forever changed by the love shown to me by others.  I am blessed!!!!!!!!

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