~Word Filled Wednesday~

psalm 46

No matter what our circumstances, we can rest on the promise that God is our refuge and strength.

Jan is at MD Anderson doing her "well baby" checkup. No MRI this visit. She is having EKG, blood work and visit with endocrinologist. Please pray for good results, as well as safe travels.

Also, remember my cousins as they work on getting our uncle's affairs in order. They have quite a big task at hand, as well as caring for their mother.

Joyce Ryan passed away Saturday afternoon. Please pray for her family. Her cancer was quite wide spread in June. There will be a visitation Thursday from 6-8. I will be traveling Thursday afternoon to Texas for this and returning home sometime late in the evening. Please pray specifically for her family Thursday evening. And, safe travels.

We just got back home last night after making the quick trip to San Antonio. We had a good visit with family. In fact, so good that Mom is leaving Saturday morning to return to San Antonio as she had planned this trip to see her brother, as well as other family.

It is great comfort to know that no matter what our circumstances, we have a Father standing by our side.

Have a great Wednesday!

For more WFW, visit Amy at The 160 Acre Woods

Hey Cheryl,

Please know I'll say a prayer for Jan today. I know this visit isn't AS stressful as the BIG SCAN DAY.

So blessed you had a nice time a way and your mom is going back.

Praying for safe travels as you attend this service today. I know you'll be a blessing to this family.

Happy WFW to you♥

Still praying for Jan, Cheryl. I'm so sorry to hear about Joyce. Praying for safe travels for you and for the comfort of God for you and your family.

Beautiful WFW today. I love it!

P. S. My uncle's cancer is back in the same place in his brain. Surgery scheduled for the 15th of this month - it's growing fast but it did last time, too.

I love this verse, Cheryl. It is so full of comfort from our Lord!

I'll be praying for Jan's visit to MD Anderson and also for you and your friends and family as you are experiencing the losses of loved ones.

God is absolutely our refuge and strength, always, but that truth is even more real to us in times of trouble. I said a prayer for Jan that she will have good results and a safe journey. God bless you and your family.

Yes I get to talk to Dominic but not nearly as often as I'd like. I do hear from him in e-mail every day so that helps.

Did you hear that Nick Nischan passed away? So sad. I was following Tammy's blog and his and my heart is just breaking for them. I did a post about it on Sunday. I just didn't know if you heard.

Amydeanne said...

glad to hear Jan is just going for a check up!

hugs my friend!

Tracy said...

Amen, my friend. What an incredible promise. I'm reading this a little late to pray in advance for Jan, but she remains in my weekly prayers. So sorry to hear about Joyce. I'm sure you've been a source of encouragement for her family. I will definitely keep them, as well as your uncle's family in my prayers. So glad to hear you and your Mom had such a nice time. Continuing to pray for safe travel.
