3 Days and Counting

After a restless night, I woke up to the cheerfulness of my daytime nurse proclaiming, "It's Sunday!"
Sunday means that I have been in the hospital for three days. I expect to be here for at least two more.
Sunday means that I get to try a clear liquid diet. I haven't had anything to eat or drink since Thursday.
Sunday means that I get to take a shower! I am looking pretty rough.
Sunday means that God's people are gathering together in God's house. I am missing it.

The cancer is back, more abundant and aggressive than we first thought. I wish I were at church meeting with God this morning instead of in this hospital room trying to make sense of Him.

Questions sometimes seem to outnumber answers. However, miracles always outnumber trials. Praying for miracles for you and your family.

Hallelujah for a shower and clear liquid diet! :)
I've been thinking about you so much. God is doing His work. We don't understand it or agree with it, but you are in His hands.
Praying for you & loving you!

Love you!!! Always remember God can take anything you dish out and any questions you have!!!! I think that faith isn't the absence of questions but knowing who to ask them to!!!!
