I want to say “Hi” to the Friday Company Girls coffee. I have only recently started joining the Company Girls Coffee and I have enjoyed reading your posts and sharing feedback and comments.
In only a few weeks I can tell this is a group of women of faith that encourage and lift each other up. That is why this morning I want to specifically share with you my father has recently been diagnosed with cancer of his kidney. Three pathologists where the biopsy was taken had difficulty with a diagnosis and concluded that although they suspected cancer that the results were inconclusive. They sent the slides to another pathologist who said there is cancer. My dad requested a third opinion that hasn’t come back yet.
My father had a torn aorta in November. The doctors were amazed they even caught it. They said most people don’t make it as far as the hospital when they have one. So we were blessed for him to make it through that and he was healing and getting his strength back. However, in the process of all the testing for the heart they discovered this issue with the kidney and waited until he was stronger to do the biopsy.
Many of my friends have lost parents in the last year. Some of them much younger than my father. It has only driven home to me that my parents are getting older and won’t be around forever.
This is a very busy time of year for me in that I do taxes for a living. So you can imagine what my schedule is like right now. This busy-ness has helped to keep my mind distracted somewhat, but its always in the back of my mind as we wait for results and decisions to be made.
Thanks for letting me share that with you. I appreciate your prayers.
13 It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, 14 because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. 15 All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:13-18, New International Version, ©2011)
Company Girls! Can any of you tell me how to get the blog hop. I keep pasting the script into my HTML screen and it keeps disappearing?
