Praise and Thanksgiving!

He holds us in the palm of His hands. With praise and gratitude, we give thanks that Joe had a great report!! He now has no cancer and is fully recovered from the radiation and chemo (except for some fatigue.) We are so thankful, and so happy!

I also want to thank all of you who prayed for us. Our family and friends supported us in prayer, and many ways, and it is incredible to have you friends I’ve never met who committed to pray, this is real friendship!

Sometimes it is a little difficult to share excitement of answered prayer because I always think of people who did not receive answers to their prayers for their healing, and how they must feel. I’ve never understood why some prayers are answered, and some aren’t, or are answered in a different way. It is a gift of grace to share the happiness of others when being in that situation.

We are very thankful and grateful to the Lord and give Him all the praise and glory!

Praise God, Katherine. I think sharing the victories encourages others to hang tight and believe for their victory.

Praise the Lord! I know what you mean about varying answers to prayer for the sick. In Jan. 2006 my sister had breast cancer surgery. Two months later my brother had surgery for a brain tumor. But in just over a month he was gone.

Wonderful news, Katherine. God answers in His time and the way He knows is best for us but not always the way we think He should. We have to believe that.

Thank you for your prayers for me.

Hugs,
Hope

What wonderful news for Joe and for you. It is so great to be able to change a prayer from one asking for healing to one of pure thanksgiving and joy! Please never hesitate to share your good news. It gives hope and reason for optimism to us all.

Praise God for answered prayer. He doesn't always answer in the way we want or in the timing that we want, but when he does, we're grateful.
I love all your bunnies. I just got my little Easter bunnies out a couple of days ago. Easter will be here before we know it.
