With Gratitude

Family and Friends!  Your ears please.
Tuesday June 30 has dawned bright, blue and hopeful.
My baby sister has arrived safely which makes our battalion a threesome - 
(counting those only present in the body, I am quick to add!)
Mom is slowly but surely climbing back out of her chemo crash.  
SO thankful for your support and encouragement in prayer, e-mail, phone and blog comments:
Christ-centered counsel
            Exquisitely timed        
                 Making more of us 
                     Ordained by Him   
Enough said.  Except to borrow from another acrostic, Psalm 145....

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
   and your dominion endures throughout all generations.
The LORD is faithful in all his words
   and kind in all his works.
The LORD upholds all who are falling
   and raises up all who are bowed down.
The eyes of all look to you,
   and you give them their food in due season.
You open your hand;
   you satisfy the desire of every living thing.
The LORD is righteous in all his ways
   and kind in all his works.
The LORD is near to all who call on him,
   to all who call on him in truth.
He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
   he also hears their cry and saves them.
The LORD preserves all who love him,
   but all the wicked he will destroy.
My mouth will speak the praise of the LORD,
   and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.          


  1. And to add from that Psalm:
    The LORD is gracious and compassionate,
    slow to anger and rich in love.
    The LORD is good to all;
    he has compassion on all he has made.
    Good to hear your good news!

  2. So thankful things are improving and that your sister has made it safely, Joanne!
    God bless! We continue to pray.

    Rich and Cynthia

  3. We're still praying Joanne - for all of you.
    Brian and Joyce

  4. Ohhh, I am so living your pain with you. Hugs to you both. Praying unceasingly.
