Still Overwhelmed, but Completely Blessed

About 2 months ago, Dirk discovered an enlarged lymph on his left side.  It didn’t go away.  He scheduled an appointment with our family doctor who suggested he have it checked out by a surgeon.

The surgeon discovered enlarged lymphs under both his armpits.

Tuesday morning, June 9, Dirk undergoes a surgical biopsy.

Now, I don’t have to tell you where my mind wants to wander with all sorts of fearful and discouraging thoughts.

So, I’m choosing instead, to believe that God works ALL things for our good.  I’m choosing to replace my fears with trust in our Healer, Provider, Warrior, and Friend.

If you’re reading this today, I know you are already praying for all of us.  And I thank you in advance!
You are a blessing to us.


Another blessing

Still praying. Let me know if there are any other "practical" things I can do...cooking, running errands, etc. You know I'm happy to help.

Love you all so much! You are such a blessing.

((love the photo, too. :))

I hate sharing semi-coincidences. I hope everything turned out well. I had to commit my wife last night.
