Round 6 in Progress

Loved Ones,

Thank you for your prayers today. We can't tell you how much we appreciate them, especially on chemo days.

Ray's platelets and blood levels are holding steady. Thank you Lord! He was able to undergo the chemo as scheduled.

Ray's liver numbers are also holding steady. One is still going down, the others are stable. Our doctor says this is ok. So we are glad to hear that!

As always, with the chemo ongoing, we focus our prayers on our hope for Ray's healing. That as I type and as he speaks (right now beside me! I love those steroids! He just talks so much!) his body is being healed and restored.

And, we pray for continued trust, hope and freedom from fear. Our God is able! This we know. We know that God has a plan for us, and that it is a good plan.

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea...

'Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.' The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress."

Psalm 46:1,2, 10, 11

not alone and not afraid --
