A Mother's Song

We wanted to share an article write-up, done our local Texas Coop Power, about our family. Click here to read the article.  I love the title they gave the article; A Mother's Song.  If you all could hear the sweet melody that goes up from Bonny's lips as she trusts God with all her heart.  She knows her life is in His hands and that He is not through with her yet.

We got Bonny's blood lab work report this morning and found that things were all askew.  Her red blood count has been low for a while.  More importantly, her potassium level is very low.  I contacted her original oncologist here with this report.  He is more than happy to help Bonny and will be giving her an infusion of potassium chloride in the morning.  This will make her feel much better and give her added strength.  He said that her red blood count is low but does not require a blood transfusion at this time.  That's good news.

This has been a rather hard week for me.  I am grateful to have a cabinet job to start, but seem to get stressed very easily.  A former employee is coming to help for a season.  This will be great help in relieving some of the load of the shop.
I am realizing that our choice to trust God and draw out His grace, blessing and goodness in all circumstances is a must.  The opposite is just NO fun and leads to one misery after another.  This is a deep truth that I know God is opening my eyes to, as you pray for our family.  As you pray, our seemingly weak knees will continue to stand...for life.
We love you,
