BIG and small...

As we remember God's love today, let us be thankful for more ways He is faithful and loving even when we don't deserve it.

First, and more importantly for my friend Karen that the radiation has removed almost all signs of cancer -- PRAISE THE LORD!!! Five months ago, things looked very grim indeed for Karen and her family but God is restoring her to health and we thank Him mightily for this.

Secondly, I got a stomach bug a couple of weeks ago and I think it is safe to say - eighteen days later, that I was the only one in the family to get it - yes this is a miracle too although decidely smaller than the previous one. I hesitate to put something so seemingly minor with such a large blessing, but I think it's important to mention because it shows that God cares not only for the big concerns of ours, but also for the little ones. And anyone who has lots of small children will know how amazing this really is!

Let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name
Be joyful in You. Psalm 5:11

No!!! Not 18 days of the bug, it's just 18 days after it left me :D LOL! I'm sorry for that miscommunication. Last time I got the bug and then everyone else got it after like 8 days or something. That time I thought we were out of the woods, so this time I was prepared for it to hit the kids for up to two weeks after I recovered.

I probably shouldn't have said anything anyway. It might seem I'm trying to trivialize Karen's recovery which I am by NO means!
