Dear Friends and Family,
What a difference a day makes.
I'm writing to ask you to please pray for me. It seems that severe symptoms have set in, and they are pretty bad.
I have large blisters on the inside of my throat that hurt really bad, my hands are burnt again, the yucky bone aches are horrible...and on top of that, the diverticulitis is causing pretty bad constant stomach pain, enough to curl my toes and double me over.
Ok, enough of that. Lets smile a little.
I'm reading a book by Stan Toler called "The Buzzards Are Circling, But God's Not Finished With Me Yet". I have to share some of the chapter titles with you.
**when your world crumbles, you don't have to be one of the crumbs (you can survive your situation)
**life is full of uncertainty...but i could be wrong about that (gaining confidence in tough times)
**God created the world in six days and did not once ask my advice! (letting God take control of the situation)
**hold the phone! can't we talk about this first, Lord? (God uses testing times as building times)
**help, i've fallen, and i don't want to get up (settling the issues that hinder healing)
**the undertaker may be smiling, but God's not finished with me yet (finding hope above the hardship)
Thank you again for your prayers.
