You Can’t Out Give God

I have heard this statement all my life and I have believed it for over half of my life. This week, Lori and I received a note via mail that had a check inside. The person who sent the card simply stated that after paying bills for the month, there was some left over and they knew that “you just can’t out give God.” The card ended saying that we were lifted up in prayer daily and wishing us well. We have never met the person who sent us the card. God sometimes works in ways that are mysterious or hidden to us. Other times, God just flashes like this and you can’t miss His handiwork.

God is also working on me, too, today. Since I have had the week off from chemo, I am really starting to feel a little closer to normal again. I am really glad that my thyroid medicine is beginning to help. My internal thermostat was out of whack due to radiation damage to my thyroid. I have hypothyroidism now and I would be freezing when it’s warm, pour sweat when it is cold. It was crazy. Finally, I am beginning to get stabilized. Other medicines I have been prescribed are starting to help also with my fatigue but that is only counteracting the lung issues (65% lung function). So things are relative. I am so ready to get my body back to a point where rehab can focus on stamina, strength, and range of motion.

Sorry I am really starting to ramble. So I will let this post come to an end. God bless you, God bless our anonymous benefactors, God bless those who pray for us, and those extend love to us in so many ways.

Love always,cross2
