Standing In Victory

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come ... give glory, honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever ...” (from Revelation 4:8-9).

The surgery is complete as some may have heard by now, and it was successful, praise be to God. All of the cancer was removed, and there had been no spreading as was thought possible very early on given the aggressiveness of this type cancer. I will not have to undergo chemo or radiation. By His stripes I was healed. Let there be no doubt, God is still in the healing business, and He does not promise us one thing today and change with the wind tomorrow. I am still somewhat weak and have bouts of nausea from the antibiotics that I am taking over the course of the next two weeks. I will not be back at the keyboard on a daily basis or even a very regular basis except perhaps to check mail and to read some of your blogs as I can. Hopefully, within the next two weeks I will be able to begin commenting on your blogs and return to my own blog, but as it stands right now, I am a bit weak and unable to sit for more than just short periods of time. I do look forward to the time that I can return in full strength.

I thank all of you who have lifted me up in your prayers and your thoughts. It was almost overwhelming to read the comments and e-mails from all of you and even from many whom I had no previous contact. Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. My family also sends along their thanks for your prayers and thoughts of them during this time. God has sustained them and strengthened them daily, just as He promised in His Word.

Once again, thank you, and may God bless you with His peace, joy, and love and may you prosper in all that you do.

Standing in Victory, indeed!

Great news, and a testament to faith.


(Through tears) I am so relieved and happy for you, Blogfather.

I could have used you at the N&R's "Front Pew" over the last couple of days;)

I love you.

Ticker, This is such wonderful news. I am so happy for you and your family. Many, many times our blessings are too bountiful to count or to even comprehend.

I'm thanking God for your successful surgery, and for no need for further treatments.

Take care,
