My husband has had 3 treatments and today makes 4 only 30 more to go, he is doing well so far, his throat is sore this morning though. I mixed up 1/2 cup water, 1/4 tsp of baking soda, and 1/8 tsp of salt he gargled and said it did feel better. We go at noon daily, maybe next week will be later. I like it later in the afternoons. Continue to pray for us as we take this new journey, it has become a wonderful Ministry too. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, my family came and we were so thankful for that, God sure has blessed us. I am sorry I am not posting as much as before, but my life is just too busy with other things, I am not on the computer as much. I still think of you often, and pray for you.

Amen, yes let us shine, shine, shine, I just pray that we will be a blessing to all those around us, God certainly blessed us so far, we prayed with several yesterday, and some just broke down and cried, it is wonderful to be a comfort in times like this. I think it is so needed for us to be useful and be a blessings, it takes our minds off our own problems, which besides some are so very minute. Thank you sweet ladies for all your prayers, and I know you continue, I love each of you dearly. Have a wonderfully blessed day.
The days are passing by, too fast too, all is well here in White Oak, God is so good, and he has poured his blessings out upon us indeed. We look around us and see so much suffering, and pain and it is so great to be able to pray with those less blessed than we are, to encourage them, and some just need to talk about their illness, I sure pray that God will continue to bless those we talk to, and some may accept him as their own personal Saviour. Have a great day, and be a blessing to those around you.Photobucket

I'm so happy to hear that all is going well. We're continuing to pray...and are grateful to the Lord for giving you an opportunity to minister to others. What a blessing that must be for them as they are going through such troubling times. And what a great example you and your husband are to the rest of us to listen to God's leadings and minister in your own time of trouble! May He bless you abundantly always.

Joyfully,
Jillian

Thank you all for the encouragement and prayers, it is a wonderful journey, and one never traveled if it were not for this cancer. It has turned into a very wonderful and creative Ministry for us, we go each day for his treatments, and we as a blessing and soldier for Christ, if it were not for this we never would of met so many great folks who need prayer, and need some encouragement in these dark times. God bless each of you, and my heart is full from all your sweet comments.
