June 16, 2009

For Today...

Outside my window... The Sun is Shining Bright and Beautiful but my heart is heavy

I am thinking... about my Dad. It was confirmed that he has Lung Cancer. My quiet time in the Word yesterday was in Psalm 23. I felt the Holy Spirit with me and somehow knew this is what I would hear.

I am thankful for... The Strength, Love, and comfort from the Lord

I am wearing... Shorts and a tank top

I am reading... 1 Samuel, Psalms, "Leota's Garden" by Francine Rivers, &
"That's My Son" by Rick Johnson

I am hoping... they will be able to operate on my dad. At this point that is "if-y" because of the location of the tumor, BUT~ God can do ANYTHING. He finds out Friday.

I am praying... for my Dad, my Nana, who is alone and dealing with all of this, Lori and family, Heydon and Jennifer,and Mary my sweet sweet friend! Another Bloggy friend whose husband is also having serious health issues too.

Around the house... a Peace that Passes all Understanding

One of my favorite things... at dusk, watching the Lightning bugs dance across my yard, the beautiful family of Deer that come to graze in our back yard, spending time with my kids and Rylee, my sweet grand-daughter. The love and support my husband pours into me during this difficult time and seeing Gods hand so powerfully on my family right now

A few plans for the rest of the week... Jantzen finishes cooking school this week, My husband and I are taking a cooking class together on Thursday ~ yum ~ (wings, brats, shrimp dip)

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

Our prayers for your Dad. I'll say one after posting this comment.

I'm impressed that after listing some of the stresses you are experiencing you could still write this: "Around the house... a Peace that Passes all Understanding." That is what a Christian home is all about. Good job and God bless.


What a beautiful picture of you and your dad. So sorry to hear his news. We will be praying he gets good news on Friday! I'm praying he feels the power of God and all the prayers people have for him. Thank you so much for your prayers... you are so sweet! The cooking class sounds so fun... take pictures so you can share with us!!


Good post Honey! As I told your Dad GOD is working in and through all of this.I lift you up this day. And the days to come!


I am sorry to hear the bad news about your dad. I will be praying that they are able to operate. I think of Romans 8:28 at times like this. I don't know how God can work things like this together for good, but I know He does. I smiled when I saw your comment about the lighting bugs. I remember them with joy when I think back to my growing up days in Oklahoma. I wanted my children to see some when we were there one summer years ago. But I only saw one and they missed it. What a shame.


Oh, Loren, I'm sorry to hear that doctor's report. I look forward to the Friday report and stand in the gap for your dear dad praying for every tumor to shrink and bow to the name of Jesus. Great pic of you two!

I pray that Loren will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, Lord. For You have considered her trouble. You have known her soul in adversities, and have not shut her up into the hand of the enemy. You have set her feet in a wide place. Ps. 31: 7-8.

I love you, dear one.


Sister Loren, I admire the courage you had shown despite the diagnosis for your dad. I'm joining these wonderful brothers and sisters in Christ in praying for your dad. My dad passed away back in Dec. 2007, from colon cancer. May the Lord's wonderful promises of comfort, strength, protection and healing cover your dad and you and your family. God bless you sister and thank you for always encouraging me. I truly appreciate your visits. Love and blessings to you.

Loren...praying for you daddy!
