Psalm 121

After I posted the "Fear of Side Effects", I went to pick up Carter & Cole at school. I was extremely late cuz I couldn't find my purse anywhere in the house. My keys were gone as well. Both items ended up being in the basement. (Not a place I have ever put them) Even in the driving rush of picking the boys Psalm 121 came to mind. It was a comfort. Enjoy & take in every word.

I lift up my eyes to the hills--
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip--
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you -- (Kate)
The Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm --
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

Dear Kate,
You need not worry about prayers I know that you are constantly on many peoples minds. I know that your situation is raised up to the Lord often.
As a note of encouragement, I have a friend who found out that he had an inoperable brain tumor and was basically given 6 months to live. He began an aggressive treatment plan that the Dr.s were not very encouraging about. That was over 3 years ago and as far as I know he is in remission. He is back working full time and doing all the things he used to do. My point is that you should never give up and fight all the time. He went through some really, really bad side effects (he couldn't eat during the chemo and lost a lot of weight and hair) but it was worth it in the end.
Much love and prayers.
