Today in Bible study I was informed that Sue passed away. She was the lady I wrote about a while back with 10 tumors alone in the brain and her cancer originated in her uterus. Last week she was given 3 weeks - 3 months to live after finding out it had traveled to her bones. She literally found out she had cancer a little over 4 weeks ago.
Carter has been praying for her every night along with Bob from the Houston airplane ride, Joe from Siteman (he says Mr. Bob & Mr. Bennett) and me. He has been so faithful to lift every one of these precious people to Jesus. Pray for me as I need to inform him of Mrs. Cornwell. I think I will use the analogy of trials and how there are three basic scenarios. I think I shared this with you some time ago but it is worth repeating. We all need a good reminder when it comes to major life trials and heartache.
1. We can be delivered from the fire.
Dividend? Our faith is built.
2. We can be delivered through the fire.
Dividend? Our faith is refined.
3. We can be delivered by the fire straight into His arms.
Dividend? Our faith is perfected.
Praising God Sue loved Jesus and is straight in His arms today. Pray for her husband Mark and three year daughter, Natalie.
Remember I am praying for #2. You can do the same. God is more than able.
Tomorrow I am to see Dr. Linette at 9:30 with the official reading of the MRI. Afterwards I am to see Dr. Simpson. At this time I will be telling Dr. Linette that I am looking to find an oncologist closer to home and Dave's work. I am presently looking at Dr. Needles who practices at St. Johns. Pray that my words are gentle and sincere. Dr. Linette is a fantastic, precise and genuine doctor. I only wish he was in west county. I have an appointment with Dr. Needles next Thursday at 12:30 to discuss many areas of my treatment.
On a funny note: Dr. Needles could be the doctor for me. Who can have a neurosurgeon of Dr. Forget (yes it is in french but it looks funny) and not have another with an odd name? Only Kate Snodgrass.
