Power of Prayer

My mother gave us a terrible scare a couple of weeks ago with a bad report on a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound.  When she asked the diagnostic radiologist if it was cancer, he replied, "I do."  Those were NOT encouraging or comforting words to hear.
She had a biopsy Monday and PRAISE the LORD Jesus,  NO CANCER!!!!!!  I don't think we have ever been so relieved!
She had many people praying for her.  We are so thankful for the prayers, concern and kind words from so many.
While we are so relieved and thrilled, it makes me so mindful of people that are going through terrible sickness.  I am going to pray for the people at the oncology office near my house, everytime I pass by.

Thank you Jesus for hearing our prayers!!!!

I rejoice for you Mom and all you who love her.

I do the same for our children's hospital, each time I drive by, say a prayer for the children, their families and the hospital folks looking after them. I believe it makes a difference.

WONDERFUL news, I was thinking about your Mom and you and praying. So glad the news came back with no cancer. BIG hugs to you. It must have been so hard to deal with that and the wait is even harder. God Bless you all. All my love.

Laurie, Thanks for your comment on my blog. Linda's biopsy was positive for cancer. She goes Monday for full details and could possibly start chemo next week. Everyone is really sad and shocked, but believing in the Lord for a fast recovery. The doctor was very positive about her situation. Thanks for your prayers.

Complicated

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chu

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
