You are Always Only Good

Looking back, I can see Your fingerprints
Upon my life, always seeking my best.
There were times when Your way would make no sense,
But as You said, You have never left.

You are always good, You are only good;
You are always good to me.
Though my eyes can’t see, help my heart believe
You are always, only good.

Looking in, I can see my frailty;
My sin is great, and my strength is so small.
Still You stay, and Your mercy shelters me;
You hold my hand, and You hear my call.

Looking up, I can see Your sympathy;
I doubt myself, but I’m sure of Your love.
Lavish grace was poured out at Calvary,
Securing me for our home above.

Chest Port Coming Out Today!

Senior on a Moped

An elderly man on a Moped, looking about 100 years old,
pulled up next to a doctor at a street light.
The old man looked over at the sleek shiny car and asked,
‘What kind of car ya got there, Sonny?’
The doctor replied “A Ferrari GTO.
It cost a half a million dollars! ”
‘That’s a lot of money,’ said the old man.
‘Why does it cost so much?’
‘Because this car can do up to 320 miles an hour!’ stated the doctor proudly.
The Moped driver asked, ‘Mind if I take a look inside?’
‘No problem,’ replied the doctor.
So the old man poked his head in the window and looked around.
Then, sitting back on his Moped, the old man said,
‘That’s a pretty nice car, all right… But I’ll stick with my Moped!’
Just then the light changed, so the doctor decided to show
the old man just what his car could do. He floored it,
and within 30 seconds the speedometer read 160 mph.
Suddenly, he noticed a dot in his rear view mirror.
It seemd to be getting closer!
He slowed down to see what it could be
and suddenly WHOOOOSSSHHH !
Something whipped by him going much faster!
‘What on earth could be going faster than my Ferrari ?’
the doctor asked himself.

He pressed harder on the accelerator
and took the Ferrari up to 250 mph.
Then, up ahead of him, he saw
that it was the old man on the Moped!
Amazed that the Moped could pass his Ferrari,
he gave it more gas and passed the Moped at 275 mph.
He was feeling pretty good until he looked in his mirror
and saw the old man gaining on him AGAIN!
Astounded by the speed of this old guy,
he floored the gas pedal and took the Ferrari
all the way up to 320 mph.
Not ten seconds later, he saw the Moped
bearing down on him again! The Ferrari is flat out,
and there’s nothing he could do!
Suddenly, the Moped plowed into the back of his Ferrari,
demolishing the rear end.
The doctor stopped and jumped out and,
unbelievably, the old man was  still alive.
He ran up to the banged-up old guy and said,

‘I’m a doctor…. Is there anything I can do for you?’
The old man whispered,

‘Please Unhook my suspenders from your side view mirror!’.



John and I are  heading to the out patient surgery center this morning and arriving at 8 am  for my breast surgeon to remove the chest port she put in there a little over a year ago for IV cancer drug infusions.  I’m happy to have those Round Two Treatments wrapped up (hoping that there never is a Round Three)  and glad to be getting rid of that extra hardware!  🙂  Thank You, Lord for carrying this child of yours close to Your heart  through deep, deep waters!

I’m going to keep on  hangin’ on tight to the One who loves me most of all, is my precious Savior, and is always up to something good in all that He allows in my life, including the rough stuff.  He is the only One who can make any of those cancer treatments work and I know that He is just as wise, good, and loving if all these measures I’ve taken are completely effective or not.    It brings me great peace to remember that I could not be in more excellent Hands than I’m already in and I’m not going to die one day before He says so and then, oh the joy when He brings me  Home Sweet Home to Eternal Life in Heaven  by whatever means He deems best!  Hooray for the truth of John 3;16!

I would very much appreciate your continued prayers when you think of me.  Thanks, friends!
