Miscellany

 

Tonight we’re celebrating my daughter’s birthday, coming up on Wednesday. She’ll be 36–and she’s my youngest!  I often wonder how on earth this happened, that I have children in their late 30’s and early 40’s 🙂  Truly the years have flown. The older I grow, the more I realize that life is truly just a vapor.

We have a friend about our age who has just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. We are heartsick, knowing that treatment is almost worse than the cancer itself.  If you think of it, please pray for our friend and his family.

I’ve been fighting a migraine most of the week, so I’m feeling pretty drained this morning.  Been thinking about how sin has affected us.  Not necessarily our own sin, but the fact that we live in a fallen world where the rain does indeed fall on the just and the unjust.

Think how wonderful it will be in heaven, when our glorified bodies will be free of sin, sickness, pain and death.   No more night, no more pain, no more tears, no more crying again. . . .I’ll have to find that song.  I think it’s in one of my earlier posts.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your migraine, and about your friend’s diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. As a diabetic, I can understand some of the problems that friend will face, since the pancreas controls the supply of glucose that goes to the liver and into the rest of the body. My prayers will be with both of you.

    That is a wonderful song, and it goes on to say that we’ll be giving praise to the Risen Lamb, which is an even more wonderful part of Heaven! Makes a body homesick…. 🙂 Have a great day!
