Through It All

Hello Everyone! I hope this finds everyone doing well. Leah has not bounced back as quickly this time. The dreaded shot has caused additional pain and seems to have prolonged the recovery time. She seems to be improving but we take it one day at a time. She hopes to be better by Saturday for the tea party. I pray she will be well enough by then but it is one of those things you never can predict. Taking care of herself is most important. She only has one more treatment and it will be next Wed. if all goes as planned. The finish line is in sight.

Leah will be back on to blog when she feels well enough. She still reads all the comments even if she is not in contact. Words of encouragement are very powerful and uplifting when someone is going through the valley. It is what helps you get through the day. I know it means a lot to her. Thank you for all you have done for the family. I know you will continue to keep them in your prayers.

God Bless and Keep You,
Lisa


This is my song for the day:

"Through It All"

I've had many tears and sorrows,
I've had questions for tomorrow,
there's been times I didn't know right from wrong.
But in every situation,
God gave me blessed consolation,
that my trials come to only make me strong.

Through it all,
through it all,
I've learned to trust in Jesus,
I've learned to trust in God.
Through it all,
through it all,
I've learned to depend upon His Word.

I've been to lots of places,
I've seen a lot of faces,
there's been times I felt so all alone.
But in my lonely hours,
yes, those precious lonely hours,
Jesus lets me know that I was His own

I thank God for the mountains,
and I thank Him for the valleys,
I thank Him for the storms He brought me through.
For if I'd never had a problem,
I wouldn't know God could solve them,
I'd never know what faith in God could do.

Through it all,
through it all,
I've learned to trust in Jesus,
I've learned to trust in God.
Through it all,
through it all,
I've learned to depend upon His Word.

Hi Leah.

One more to go, you can make it because you got all of us to help carry you over the hill! I ask now, in the name of Jesus, that you receive the strength to withstand whatever comes with this and the final treatment. It has been a long journey, and you should be proud of yourself. You've maintained your faith through-out it all. May God be with you the rest of the way.

Love,
Vernie

I sent a message by Bro. Stoneking to your email address. We found it on You Tube. It is so uplifting. You can feel faith as he is preaching. The title is "Our Apostolic Heritage".

Hope you enjoy.
