Thank you for your prayers in recent days. Tomorrow they plan to transfer my nephew to Duke Univ. Cancer Center. He is currently in intensive care in a local hosptial.
I have been away from home for two weeks now, and I do not know how much longer I will need to be be here in N.C. Living in a hotel creates an odd since of displacement, but it also reinforces the transitory nature of our sojourn here in this life, until God calls us to our permanent home with Him.
The following verses are my "until next time" sign off. God bless you - Marsha
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted but not abandoned; stuck down, but not destroyed. ...
All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God. Therefore, we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
II Corinthians 4:7-9,15-18
