    Jesus, our Living God, walks with you in all of this. Faith, Hope, and Love always remain, even in the valley of Death's shadow. I join in lifting you both up before the Throne of Grace.

    Plinker, the one Isaiah called "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace" is also the Great Physician. We will bring your wife's situation before Yeshua for the Word says:

    "Ask and it will be given you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks will find, and he who knocks it will be opened."

    God tells us to ask, seek and knock, there is no sluggishness indicated here, the idea is to ask repeatedly, seek repeatedly and knock repeatedly and keep on asking, seeking and knocking until the Lord moves. We must persevere in that prayer because it shows our genuineness and sincerity. To ask once and walk away shows disrespect to the Giver.  We, together, will keep your wife before the Lord continually in our prayers and petitions. Ya know plinker, I really don't think that the Lord was talking about granting small things … sometimes I think that the Lord takes a great deal of pleasure in knocking our socks off with the unlimited bounty of His grace towards us and His ability to go far beyond our wildest dreams, hopes or expectations. Over the next few months you will be tried, you will be subject to giving in to the worst imaginations of your spirit concerning this situation, but let not your heart be troubled, your wife is in good hands, it's all up to the Lord … as we all are dependent on the Lord, whether we acknowledge it or not.

    Always remember, God is not reluctant to give, He is not sitting back unconcerned with our welfare, He is as a loving father to His own child, He will not mock our requests, He will not give grudgingly, When He gives, it is not of a lesser quality than an earthly father would give to his child. He does not give ragged substitutes. He gives what is wholesome and good for us and in His will. Most of all, know that the Lord is not far from any of us for in Him we live and move and have our being.

    Stay strong Plinker, be there for her, take this walk with her and hold her hand as you go through the valley of desolation together. It may seem dark and scary right now, but you can see only as far as the horizon which is the limit of your own sight. Trust in His sight for He sees far beyond that horizon.

    Blessing and Love,

    Shalom Aleichem (Peace be upon you)

    I am not surprised at the outpouring of support I’ve seen here. We are 57 and have had an incredible life together since we found each other at 16. Yes, high school sweethearts. Like David I will pray while I can in hope, but regardless of the outcome we will continue to serve and worship The Lord. 

    2 Samuel 12 20-23

    20Then David got up from the ground, washed and anointed himself, changed his clothes, and went into the house of the LORD and worshiped. Then he went to his own house, and at his request they set food before him, and he ate.

    21“What is this you have done?” his servants asked. “While the child was alive, you fasted and wept, but when he died, you got up and ate.”

    22David answered, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept, for I said, ‘Who knows? The LORD may be gracious to me and let him live.’ 23But now that he is dead, why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I will go to him, but he will not return to me.”

    I thank you for the prayers, because I know the Great Physician can heal her if He chooses. He can also glorify Himself through this process and we love Him even if it ends in her passing. We will continue to pray and praise His holy name. 

    Thanks again for your collective love. You and I know each other only through a common interest, air guns, but your prayers have reached to The One who knows us all.

    She cried when I told her the Airgun nation was praying for her all over the world. She said, “I don’t deserve that”. Thanks again.

    That's precious Plinker, seems like you married quite a lady. Please tell her that Likkitysplyt disagrees with her entirely. Let me tell you a secret that you may not hear in church. She needs to realize that the way she sees herself is NOT the way that God sees her. We all do what she is doing a lot of the time … we look in the mirror and we see something less that what our heavenly Father sees. We see someone who is sorely burdened and shifting the heavy suitcase from one hand to the other. We see a wobbly and weak kneed person who knows they don't have it all together and wonder if that amazing grace is really meant for them. We see ourselves bedraggled, beat-up and sometimes burned out. We see an inconsistent, unsteady disciple whose cheese is falling off our cracker. We sometimes see a poor, weak, sinful person with hereditary faults and limited talent … an earthen vessel shuffling along on feet of clay … bent and bruised and feeling like their lives are a grave disappointment to God and to our fellow man, because for one reason or another … we don't measure up to what (in our opinion)we should be. 

    We see ourselves as a projection of all the things we have done wrong … or the things we feel that we should have done in life, but didn't … and assume that God must be seeing us in the same way. The truth is that God loves us so much, that He would rather die (on the cross) than live without us. What God wants is not merely a luke warm relationship with each of us, but a red hot intense love affair. God is "wild" about you and He wants you to feel the same way about Him. He wants a relationship that is strong enough to get you through any and all minefields you may find yourself in on this journey. He wants all of you, because He loves you THAT much. Sooo tell Laurie that God loves her just as she is, not as she should be, because none of us are as we should be on this side of heaven. We are all mustard seeds, the smallest of all seeds, but when we are grown we are greater than all herbs and become trees so that the birds of the air come and nest in our branches. If she could only see what God sees in her she would be amazed, for she is unique, one of a kind, there is no one else on earth like her, she is a treasure worthy of God's love and attention. It is not her grip on God that saves her, but His grip on her and His grip is trustworthy, steadfast and sure.

    Shalom

    Mastectomy scheduled for Tuesday,August 13

    However, the prognosis on type, size and extent are good! Praise God and thank you all for your prayers. We have 4 grand kids 8 months to 5yrs old and they all love their Lollie. She’s 5’1” and hardly past 100lbs, but everyone’s rock and a true biblical Tabitha. It looks like we might get to keep her! She is such a selfless giver and against her nature, now she must learn to receive. She is my Proverbs 31:10-31.
