Loved Ones,

We thank you for your many well wishes for our anniversary -- it was encouraging to read your thoughts and verses. We were able to spend a little time together tonight and reflected with thankfulness on our eight years. The girls were part of the celebration today too and they enjoyed our wedding video. Especially the dancing!

The chemo has hit Ray pretty hard this time around so Ray had a very quiet day as moving around was pretty painful due to the irritation in his GI tract. We have to go back to the clinic tomorrow for one of Ray's medicines, so they'll check him out to see if there is anything else they can do to relieve his symptoms.

How much we all pray for healing and relief for Ray.

This verse from our wedding had new meaning for me today.

"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. This is my command: Love each other." John 15:16

not alone and not afraid --

kristin and ray
