Silver Sunday/ Spiritual Sunday

Thanks to Gypsy Fish  and Enchanting Cottage for hosting this Holy Day.

In my reading for today, I read these words by Norman Vincent Peale…..

What lies beyond the threshold of today, you do not know, nor do I.  We speculate, but we do not know.  Inescapable, however, we must cross that threshold.  And with the golden gift of hope, we can confidently, eagerly, optimistically.

This life is not easy!  It is often fraught with pain and suffering.  But hope gives you a lilting upthrust that takes you above the suffering.  Forty-second Psalm states “….hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God”.  What power in this text! 

I pray today for Sharon who is beginning her journey thru chemo and radiation and who is already sick and unable to eat.

I pray for all who are suffering and in need of God’s healing and unending love.

This is a picture of Sharon and I the day before she began her treatment at a luncheon she gave for her close friends.

I pray you have a blessed day.

I really hope that Sharon at least can feel well enough to manage the treatment. She is very lucky to have you as her friend. Every day is one step closer to the end of treatment and to good health.
