It's Time!

  1. It's time to thank the Lord for all He has done and is doing for me.
  2. It's time to thank you for praying for our family throughout this crisis time.
  3. It's time for us to know that God is really doing something so very special in our lives and get excited about it.
  4. It's time to connect with old friends.
  5. It's time for us to go gather the Harvest of Souls that are out there waiting for us.
  6. It's time for us to minister the healing of Jesus Christ to people that are suffering.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; surely he bore our sorrows and joys and by his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 - and the words to the song.

Yesterday I had to get my blood tested and found out today that everything looked good. I went in today to get the chemo treatment and found out that I didn't have to have chemo for at least one month. Isn't that exciting? I have to have radiation until next Wednesday and believe that will be over at that time. God has been so good to me that I can hardly believe it! I am so thankful.

If you are one of the people that have brought food or had us over to your house for dinner, we thank you so much. It has been such a blessing to us. We appreciate it more than you could possibly know.

We are going to attempt to get my strength back a little now too and I am going to try to start cooking a little and working around the house. What a blessing that is. I am still not as strong as I want to be, but I will be there!

Oh Arlene, that is such great news!
I've got a river of life flowing
down from me.
Makes the lame to walk and the blind to see.
Opens PRISON doors, sets the captives free!
Ive got a river of life flowing
out of me!
Girl you have lots to do!!!

If you need any help with anything, please call. I can come over and clean or cook or cut your grass, whatever is necessary.

Don't over do it... you need your strength that stupid jerk satan keeps trying to knock you down, but you stand on a Mighty Rock!
