"Come, let us sing to the Lord!

Let us give a joyous shout to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come before him with thanksgiving, Let us sing him psalms of praise.
For the Lord is a great God, the great King above all gods.
He owns the depths of the earth, and even the mightiest mountains are his.
The sea belongs to him, for he made it. His hands formed the dry land too.
Come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the Lord our maker, for he is our God.
We are the people he watches over, the sheep under his care."
Psalm 95:1-7

And the verdict is still out...on my dad that is. More tests are too come. This is good news. Why you say? From previous doctors appointments, we felt as though we were to expect the worst today. Although one would not confirm without more tests being done, one doctor allowed us to believe it would be a bad case of (colon) cancer. (you always read more into it than you should, telling yourself you need to prepare for the worst.) One doctor suggested that "there is definately something wrong. And it may be VERY difficult to fix." So, with that, we set forth. And believe.

Today, the tests did NOT show cancer! (WOOHOO!!) They did show a mass of something, but the doctor says this....get ready.... "It seems to be healing itself." (we could have told him that!)....

So, still a few more doctors to come... but, we believe.
Thank you all for praying, and for continuing too.

(This is our beloved Papa....)

As usual GOD IS SO FAITHFUL- He indeed is as close as the very mention of His name.
Keep on writing - reading your blog is one of the "highlights" in my day. God truly has given you a gift in the means of written communication!!
