Day 12: I am continuing to recover from the heavy chemo bombardment. Slowly, my body is bringing it's blood counts back up. I had another red blood cell transfusion last night, the Lord, as He has in each transfusion, kept me safe. My appetite is good, no nausea etc...your prayers are being answered and I believe more firmly each day that God is moving toward a complete healing. He has given me visions of specific plans and jobs He has for me in the future here on planet earth. I am not waiting around to be at work however, but as He is at work, so am I. I have had the opportunity to pray with and for most of my nurses, some of the aids and even my doctors. They are sort of stunned as they are transfusing me in the middle of the night, when I ask, "how can I pray for you?"...one of my nurses broke down in tears as she was suffering from the horrible image of discovering her sister- in -law in an attempted suicide, at the same time her son was in harms way in Afghanistan, another nurse was dealing with family problems, another her friend was fighting breast cancer and so the work continues. Just beneath the surface of every human, you will find a soul in need. We carry the gift of life in these earthen vessels (in my case a very broken earthen vessel) but regardless, we are to continue His work of love, care and compassion for others...especially the lost...as Jesus declared, "Look around you! ...Vast fields are ripening all around us and are ready now for the harvest."...and then I love this part; "The harvesters are paid good wages [Jesus says], and the fruit they harvest is people brought to eternal life." John 4:35-36 I can not possibly express in words the power of your love, care and compassion and prayers for me...for your love has lifted me up on wings of eagles and my spirit is soaring high with the Lord. Blessed be the name of the LORD!
Always in love with you,
