Chemo begins

God so loved
Jesus came
I believe
The Holy Spirit guides
His word comforts

I am in love.

Simple as that.

My mom starts Chemo tomorrow...her first treatment from 10am-2pm. Her next appointment is 21 days from then. She will lose her beautiful hair in about 2 weeks.

Today on the phone...she calls and asks if we can talk about the one we both love...Jesus.
Fresh from her time with Him...

She feels loved.
She calls Jesus her Savior.
She says the Holy Spirit spoke to her.
She feels comfort in God's word.

She is in love.

Simple as that.

As we speak we are moved to tears by a prayer she wrote, a story of amazing grace, and how true compassion can only come when you are free.

There is nothing like it...walking with Jesus. Nothing like it.

Please pray for my mama! Pray for strength, healing, joy, peace, rest.

P.S. Praise report...they biopsied the lymphnodes they removed during surgery last week. Only 1 of the 11 lymphnodes they took out had cancer. I praise the Lord.

God loved, Jesus came, & I believe
John 3:16
For God so loved the world
that He gave His only son
that whoesoever believes in Him
will not perish but have
everlasting life.

The Holy Spirit guides
John 14:26
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

The Word comforts
Romans 15:4
For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.

I didn't know, Shelly, but my heart wells up with tears (and joy, knowing her heart is definitely in the right place). Please give her a hug for me and let her know Kyla loves her and I'm praying for her in Michigan! God does amazing things through ordinary people, and for that we can all give thanks!
