I hope I can do justice to the day that God called me for today.  Last night, I asked for everyone’s prayers for my brother in law and my family. That for the first time in 18 years he would reach to God–and faced with leukemia and the immediate prospect of chemo, clinical trials, how much time? I guess he listened finally to God’s constant calling to him. I heard from him this morning. I can not begin to express the depth of my feelings–for those of you who have prayed for years for someone.. For those of you who have family or friends suffering with cancer of any kind, you understand.  This is my sister’s husband. She is my prayer partner, my confidant, my dear sister (but I love all of them dearly) and in some ways like my own child in that when she was born, I was 12. I fell in love with her the first time I saw her. I can still remember trying to coax 2 oz down her at midnight or whenever she was up–I was there. I don’t know why–and my mother let me. I did the same for the two that followed her. I like to think we have our own special relationships too.

But THIS sister, she is always there when I am in the hospital, she won’t even let me stay by myself. This sister, she won’t let me die either! not on her watch and my husband trusts her with me. That is saying a lot! Forgive me if I am repeating special things about her. But she is never validated enough by anybody-except maybe some of that is starting to happen for her in her business. She, as I have, has grown too through all this trial and tribulation. She too has an incredible story! of Strength and Loyalty and Pushing Through-Come what may!

Still, there is much work to be done, but at least the path has been started down! The heart is open and ready to receive-May the Lord shine His Light in that heart and do all the work that is needed/was done at the cross/but must be accepted/and now whatever He wants will go forward.

So  much other wonderful things happened today too. All of God’s putting together, of course! I had hoped to go into that a bit, but it is late and I still have one call to make. I promised.

Pray on Warriors! Lift your eyes and see that the fields are full and the workers are few.  I pray that you will find a way to let God use in whatever way you can be used as it seems He has found a way for me.

  3. What beautiful words you have shared about your loving sister and all she brings. How dedicated and loving your sister is. I also have a sister who has been with me through my ideal. It’s so meaningful to know their is somewhere to watch out for you. I’m sorry to hear about your brother-in-law and now your exacerbation of health problems. I will keep your entire family in prayer.
    God Bless You, Edie
