C-A-N-C-E-R

Have you ever played the game of Boggle? Letter cubes are shaken and then arranged in a square. Opponents try to form as many words as possible, in a given amount of time, from the letters. I (Susan) like it! You could actually say it is one of my favorite games. This morning, as I was lying in bed, I decided to scramble cancer and form as many words as possible. CAN, NEAR, CARE, RACE are some of the words I came up with. Isn't it amazing--such an awful word full of words of hope!!

We see the oncologist, Dr. Chen, tomorrow morning. Hopefully, we will have a game plan following that meeting.

"Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." Hebrews 12:1-3

What can we say that we havn't said before? We will walk, run and sometimes crawl this winding road along side you. We will rest together in our Savior and Lord along the way. When we grow tired He will carry us. We will finish the race and keep the faith.
The Lord be with your spirit, Grace be with you.
Jerry, for all

We love you all so much and we trust that the Lord will not give you more than what you can handle. Yet, our prayer would be that you would see the miraculous in the midst of pain, you would know the unmeasurable love of Christ in the midst of sorrow, and that you will marvel at the power and grace of an almighty God in the midst of uncertainty. We are ever praying for you and with you. God is more than able to do abundantly more than we could ever ask. He is faithful!
Lots and lots of love,
The Bryan Family

Joan D. is a dear friend of mine and I just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for you and yours! My husband was diagnosed with asinic (sp?) cell carcinoma and had surgery, the LORD used it in many ways for His glory!

A fellow child of the living God,
