- The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.
What an AWESOME God we serve. If we repent - which I do daily - He doesn't hold yesterday against us, or the day before, or the day before that. We have a BRAND NEW DAY to get it right. To do someone a favor. To lend someone a hand. To smile and to listen and to care. To forgive someone!
For me, of course, it will be Jerry since nobody else is here today. And Jerry doesn't really count because it gives me great pleasure to love on him every chance I get. He is doing so good! This is the 11th day. This is the period of chemo that is suppose to be the worst. He mentioned a few minutes ago that his fingertips were numb. Other than that, he feels good. He sleeps soundly all night long. He is eating. Food tastes good. He smiles and laughs and plays with the cats. He walked all around the huge back yard yesterday with me and the fence guy, Jason, and held the measuring tape. It was VERY cold, and he didn't even have a hat on his handsome bald head.
I just thank God with every fiber of my being that Jerry will completely recover from this minor blow.
Honestly, we haven't mentioned Jerry's condition to a SINGLE person that we haven't heard of a family member or friend with something a lot worse than Jerry is dealing with. One friend has a brother who has a son and grandson -- and they ALL have some kind of spiderweb brain cancer. Two are dead.
The fence man, Jason, who we just met yesterday has a friend who had cancer in his lower intestine, and now it is all through his body.
Another girl told us of her sister who has breast cancer. She has had radiation and chemo SEVERAL times, and the cancer is still there.
I pray these people all know my Jesus. His name is GREATER than whatever name a cancer has. God said, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge." Hosea 4:6 It is so true.
Did you know THIS scripture is in the Bible, and Jesus is the one who said it:
John 14:12, KJV Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
KNOWLEDGE is everything! The Bible says that the Word is ALIVE and FULL OF POWER. Problem is -- and how very sad -- that it does NO GOOD at all if we don't KNOW it and SPEAK it.
I am very blessed indeed that my Daddy knew the Bible and taught it to me. My Mother also.
My heart's desire is that America somehow comes back to God, and once again, our children will be taught about their Creator and His Son who died for them.
I better get my MERCIFUL NEW MORNING started! Have a great one yourself!
