Houston, Here We Come

Well, we had a few days of nice cool weather here in Missouri, but it's hot and humid again now.  A little rain this morning, which we don't need, but we will take it.  The Lord sends the rain so we won't complain!!

Next week my mom and dad and I are heading to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.  We are meeting with an oncologist and they are drawing blood and doing a CT scan.  We'll head back home, and then follow up with the doctor by telephone on Monday, September 26th.  He will let us know what treatment he feels is appropriate, and we will have treatments done locally.  Thank God for the opportunity to consult at this amazing location in Houston, and yet be able to take treatments about an hour away from home.  

Please pray for safe travels there and back, for good reports from the blood work and CT scans, and for the Lord to give this doctor supernatural wisdom to know exactly what to do.  I do not believe that seeking earthly treatment for this disease reflects a lack of faith in God.  WE ARE STILL PRAYING AND BELIEVING FOR HEALING IN JESUS NAME!!  I pray for safety every time I get in my car . . . BUT I STILL FASTEN MY SEAT BELT!!!  I pray for God to care for my body, but I believe it's my responsibility to eat right, and exercise and take the best care of myself I can.

Please keep praying for healing, and against fear and worry.  Those two things are not of God and we want no part of them.  It is human to worry about something like this.  It is a serious disease.  But we have a God who is mighty and well able to handle this.  We are trusting Him.

Blessings to each and every one of you that have prayed for my mom.  You are appreciated more than you know.  Please keep praying and remember to thank Him for His blessings!! 


  1. I hope you have a safe trip and a good experience at MD Anderson. I have several friends getting treated there these days. I hear it's quite a special place.

    I pray that the Lord will heal your mom's body and bless her through this experience somehow.

    Have a safe trip!

    1. Thank you my friend. We did not get the news we wanted, but we are moving forward trusting Jesus.

  2. Safe travels down here. I wish I was going to be around. I would get to Interst. 45 and meet you on the road! I am leaving on a girls' trip. Prayers for your mom.

  3. My friend~ I am praying for safe travels and for divine wisdom. I am praying for you! Next week ~ I am free for lunch. Just name the day. Love ya!

  4. You are so right, Robbin, the Lord is in control and does use means. May He bless the doctors with wisdom and direction as to how best to treat your Mom. I am praying for you all today. Hugs, Camille

  5. Prayers for you all and for your mom. It's human to be afraid and to worry and be anxious, but we are commanded to be anxious for nothing. That's a hard one for me. May His peace surround you and your family, in the knowledge that His grace is sufficient.
