I've been so busy trying to learn to do things like linking that I didn't even notice that I finally passed 1,000 profile views! WHOO HOO!!! I didn't ever think that many people would ever even see my blog. I have enjoyed sharing with you my joys and sorrows and hope I haven't bored you all too much.
Speaking of joy, today both my in laws had their checkups and are doing well. Russell's dad is doing exceptionally well considering that his right lung has a huge tumor and he's 81! He is on oxygen, but is still driving and going places. He's much slower of course...but he's 81! I got the distinct impression that the dr. was quite impressed! My mother in law is doing great...she's completely cured as far as they can tell. Prayer, even the doctor is agreeing that that is what has gotten them through.
Now, for the $60,000.00 question. Why does God seemingly answer some prayers and not others? This could be a touchy subject, but I'll just say that since Genesis 3 happened, we live in a fallen, groaning creation. Some things we just have to know are a mystery. Years ago I read this on the last blank page of my grandmother's Bible, "There is a reason for our sickness known only to God." This is confirmed in Deuteronomy 29:29. Also in Daniel 12:9 after Daniel asks God what the outcome of the things He had told Daniel were, God said "Go your way Daniel." Some things we just have to be content with not knowing.
Let's all VOTE tomorrow!!!
