I ask today that you pray for my sister. She returned to work today after being out since November. I ask that you specifically pray for her feet. She has been having severe pain and numbness and tingling all from the chemo.
She goes for her scan on April 24th. This will determine if the chemotherapy has worked and they will go from there as to deciding what is next. The Lord is able and has been so good thus far and has helped her and us, her family get through this. We know the prayers from our family, friends, and Church family is
what has helped. WE CAN FEEL THEM.
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise. Jeremiah 17:14
So thankful for the time that we have got to spend together these past few months. We have had some fun times,and would not have got to do these things if she would have been at work. So thankful today for what He has done and what He. Is going to do!!! Love ya Sis!!! My hero. . Lady full of God's grace!!!! ♡♡♡

We had a great and Blessed Easter. It was a fun time with family and a wonderful Easter service at Church both Sunday morning and night. The Lord blessed and it was wonderful to know that He is still alive on Monday morning!
We took lots of pics. I will share those in another post.
Our family is much in prayer. We really believe and trust God for healing. The Lord sees and knows ALL things and is ABLE to heal her, according to His will.That is what our family wants is the Lord's will. The Lord has been so good to our family already through all of this. We are so overwhelmed of the stories we have heard from other cancer patients and the support that has been shown through our extended family and our very best friends. The Lord gives peace, and we know as a family, we can make it with His help.
Psalm 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
I love this verse, simply because He gives the promise of providing. He has provided for her and her family through all of this,and WILL continue to do so. He has kept her in His care.Even on her worst days, they could have been much worse.
Psalm 23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leader me beside the still waters.
In this verse, He gives rest and peace, a peace knowing that either way, it is going to be fine. Chemotherapy is complete and now we can rest and trust for His providing of Healing.
He's able, He's able, I know HE'S able! I know my Lord is able to carry me through. He heals the broken hearted, and sets the captives free, He made the lame to walk again, and He caused the blind to see, He's able, He's able! I know HE'S able! ! I know my Lord is able to carry me through! !
Trusting and praying for the promise of Healing today and also praying for a dear cousin is going through chemotherapy treatments for a new diagnosis of Cancer too.
The good Shepherd is able to heal His sheep.Join our family and Church family as we pray for these needs.
***** We bought these shirts the other day when we were out shopping. We really believe the Lord has something great on the horizon! ! And He is able and either way, She is an AMAZING , beautiful testimony of God's grace!! I am so proud of her!!! *****

It seems as if this winter is lasting forever.. we have had some crazy winter weather lately, with a mixture of a little snow, a pinch of sleet, and a good bit of ice for our area. When this happens, our area really goes bizzerk.. we don't know how to make it.. I know the yankees laugh at us, because it is really nothing to them, but alot to us. I am ready for warmer weather.. We have a lot of fun things planned, and some home improvements too all ready to do when warmer weather comes!!!!!!!! Bring it, SPRING!!!!
I had to spend the night at my work on monday night.. that was very interesting to say the least. we had a pretty fun time though.. after I got to sleep finally, it really was not too bad. But I must say , after Tuesday was over with, I was ready to be HOME, TOGETHER with my hubby. Last week was my birthday. Hubby told me to get ready, he had a special place reserved for our supper. We traveled to Charlotte for the evening. We had a delicious meal at Ruth's Chris steakhouse. It was very good, and the sweet potato casserole was awesome too.. We were both off for Valentine's Day, and had made plans a while back to attend a play. It was a very fun and moving play. The Gospel was presented in a great and unique way. We finished it up with a yummy bbq supper at one of hubby's favorite places, and did a little shopping... We had so much fun just being together..
Family time is important, and being with your friends too is important. We love to get together to celebrate birthdays, or just to hang out to catch up on what's been going on!! I look forward to doing that tonight!!!! We have a youth activity planned saturday.. it is going to be really fun, looking forward to that.
Next week, my sis has another chemo treatment.. Please continue to pray as she goes through with it. I just hope she does not get sick.. The last treatment was so good, it was almost as if she never had one!!! Praise the Lord!! We are so ready for all of them to be over.. We are ready to get away for some TOGETHER time as a FAMILY.!!! Have fun being TOGETHER with your loved ones, and *LIVE EVERY SECOND*.
