Chemo side effects have me down today. I'm still hanging in there though! :-)

The side effects have been unwilling to allow me to go to church today but I'm going to Praise God anyway! Even in the midst of my storm, God keeps blessing me. I feel so horrible in my body but yet so refreshed in my spirit. I know it is the prayers that everyone sends up for me. Everyday I wonder how I will ever repay all of you who have stood beside our family with your thoughts, care, concern, cards, food, etc.? You can't even begin to imagine the strength that we get from all the love.

I'm not going to say much today as I don't feel well but want to thank each of you for your continuous service to us. As my friend stated before, and I often remind myself, you are the hands and feet of Jesus Christ here on earth. We are made stronger by your sacrifices. I'm so thankful that God will honor and bless each one of you for what you've done for us. I don't know that there is anything greater than God's blessings.

I love the song, "I shall rejoice today for I shall recover it all"....."Faithful, Faithful, Faithful is our God.....Faithful, Faithful.....Victory is just around the bend. :-)

Please say a prayer as I go to the Spine Specialist tomorrow and have my biopsy done this Friday.
Love to all,

Leah.. I pray God continues to do His work in healing your body. I realized you must have not been having a good day to not have seen you in church today. As I know you are such a committed person and would have been there if you were physically able. I hope ya'll enjoyed the pasta. My version of Pasta I must say, the turkey sauce was quiet good. Always make too much sauce, so had some left over.

Remember that you are continually in our prayers and that we love you so much. If there is any.. I mean anything we can do.. please don't hesistate to contact us. I am willing to do anything you need done to make each of your days a little lighter.

Much love and prayers... Pam

Hey Leah! This is Melanie, your old friend from Brother Frazier's church. Just want you to know that we're praying for you here in TN also. You look beautiful. Do you ever take a bad picture? Lol. Tell Steve and the rest of your family that I said hello.

God bless you,
