193–God Is Always At Work

Morris family 1944

This has been a week!  On one hand, I’ve been so so thankful for the things going on in my life, and on the other hand, several people around me are facing real trials.

Mom and Uncle Don

Two years ago my Mom lost her sister to cancer.  This week, she is waiting by the phone as her oldest brother is fighting a losing battle with leukemia.  He is a godly man and is ready to go be with the Lord, but there are so many who will be left behind that dearly love him.

Don Theresa Dad and Mom

Life and time go by so quickly.  Please say a prayer for my uncle and his family.

It has been an encouragement to me to see God at work in both the really good things and the really tragic things in our lives. He is at work all around us and He is good!

I will be praying! I know far too well about family members and sickness right now. It is so hard to see them sick or suffering.

So sorry about your uncle, Jacquie. Does he live anywhere close to your Mom so that she can go see him? Will pray for your whole family at this time of sadness but also thankful your uncle knows the Lord!

I read this today: Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. Praying for you all. blessings, marlene
