New Years Blessing!
A WONDERFUL surprise happened to me on New Years...Sunday!
My dear friend Kelly and her husband surprised us by visiting our church!
I was soooo SURPRISED!! that my brain was having trouble processing the fact that the photos I had seen of them...was in PERSON now!! What a joyous moment when Kelly hugged me and I her!
The LORD brought our lives together through my daughter living in Okinawa Japan at the time AND a Breast Cancer Diagnosis!!
Kelly (living in Okinawa also) had been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and not knowing what to expect, my daughter mentioned to her that I had at one time a lump removed. Kelly called me and from there it is History of a friendship's journey.
I have many post written about Kelly and myself at my blog Watering Wells of Hope
I also post updates on health research and cancer updates and have shared other "trials", where truly, He never leaves us nor forsakes us. His GRACE is sufficient!
It has been a two year journey so far. Kelly's much more serious and full of testimony of God's Grace at her blog Grace Upon Grace Pleae stop by her blog and read the blessings!
Both of us have seen the hand of the LORD upon our lives in this trial of Cancer.
For HIS PURPOSE and HIS GLORY.
To touch other lives...witness of His Grace...testify of our own PEACE AND COMFORT found only in the LORD JESUS CHRIST!!
Another blessing for the church...is to SEE someone you have prayed for...for so long...and see them radiantly smiling! Knowing GOD did indeed answer our prayers and gave strength to Kelly and wisdom to doctors and intervention in many needed areas of her life.
Praise the LORD for his wonderful works towards...all of us!
I thank him for the care he has shown to me, as well.
It is true..you do not know what a day brings forth...
Some the greatest surprises and blessings!!!
I am reminded again of a great quote I read:
Don't miss the journey...for the destination!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR and May God grant you all joyous beginnings in this New Year full of Praises To God!!
