Bits of Good

26 Apr

Today was a fine day. I am tolerating treatment and functioning as usual. Praying and hoping for this drug and Gods power to work together to bring forth remission. But as to the good news. My gums are not as swollen today the chemo is working for them, after just one day I notice that they have receded. I am thankful for this relief and clear sign that my gums needed this treatment. The bit of good was enough for today.

Psalms 145:17-21

The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and faithful in all he does.
18 The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
he hears their cry and saves them.
20 The Lord watches over all who love him,
but all the wicked he will destroy.
21 My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.
Let every creature praise his holy name
for ever and ever.

    Hi Allie,
    So glad to hear that the chemo is helping your gums! I heard that song mentioned in yesterday’s comments-Need you Now by Plumb and thought of you also. It is a moving song. You are amazing Allie! Praying for more improvement each day!

    You are always close to me. I wear the “Be Brave” bracelet every day in your name. When I touch it, God hears another plea to surround you with His love and protection. Yesterday, I was envisioning the drips killing those cells. So good to hear this news. And now, another day. This is the Day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

    We all pray for you daily, talk about you all the time! You are close to our hearts, and pray you feel loved as you trust, fight, and touch the lives of others.

    Miss Simone Allison and I are praying that this little bit of good starts a path of healing for you. Maybe going back to the beginning was necessary to God’s plan. Hugs!
