My brain tumor remains stable. While I would like it to go away, stable is good. My next MRI is in May sometime. No real side effects from the tumor. Any side effects are from the chemotherapy: trembling of hands and legs, tiredness, indigestion, loss of appetitie, fragile skin. Otherwise I am doing well. Yesterday was both an up and down day. I had a great day in the am church service. Mark Crocco, our preaching pastor delivered a great and powerful message out of James chapter 2 on whether you just profess faith or also possess faith. He asked me to join him at the end of the service, in the front of the sancturary, to talk with and pray with people who wanted help in this area or other areas. I was absolutely great to be functioning in a pastoral capacity again. I can't thank Mark enough. It was a wonderful and special time to pray with some of the Southwood people. My heart is intwined with so many of their lives.
Dottie and I have been beginning each day with Psalm 118:24
(Psalms 118:24) This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Usually, one of us greets the other with, "So what day is it!" Ans: "This is the day the Lord has made."
"So, what are you going to do about it." Ans: "Rejoice and be glad it it!"
Try it and see if it doesn't start off your day on the right tone.
The down part of the day was coming home after church and collapsing on the couch. The tiredness can only be described as tiredness of the soul. I should have been ready for it after the spiritually invigorating time at the end of the service. But I wasn't and it turned into a time of discouragement and wrong thinking. Finally a call to my good and great friend, Mark Crocco by Dottie and his intercession on my behalf, lifted my spirits and the rest of the night went well. I currently have what I assume is a high yeast load in my blood steam. My skin itches (underneath the skin) from head to toe.) Today is Vitamin C infusion (50,000 mg) in Marlton and then back to the apartment for rest, reading and hopefully some writing.
What day is today? and what are you going to do with it?
