A Better Day

Patty had a better day today. Unfortunately, she was unable to get the drain out. Thankfully, she is going to get it out tomorrow. She's still extremely sore but getting better.

Tomorrow is the big day for Kendall. Tonight she was so excited about going to school. Patty is going to get to go in the morning to see her off on her big day. She's got her new backpack and is ready to go. Patty's aunt Rosalind came in tonight to watch the boys tomorrow morning and take Patty to get the her drains pulled out.

Tonight I was reading a book Robby McDaniel brought to Patty called "A Spiritual Journey Through Breast Cancer" by Judy Asti. I think I've enjoyed it as much or more than Patty. The author points out verses that drive home wisdom and comfort in my heart with the precision of a neurosurgeon. In my last post, I spoke of times where my faith is so strong that I almost feel guilty. Tonight I was reading the book and she was speaking of the same experience. She said it was at that moment that she understood what Paul meant in Philippians 4:6-7, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard you hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." I had always glossed over the part about 'transcends all understanding' because I didn't really understand what he meant. I think I do now.

Glad to hear Thursday was a good day. Please tell Rosalind "Hello for me" if she is still in town when you get this comment.

Stacy and Sandra's Wesley has his first home football game tonight against Central. I am going with Dale and Teresa Rutherford (Patty will recognize these names). We are all nervous for him. Both of their boys are precious.

Speaking of precious boys, Travis and Deidra's little one is four months old. Pass this info along to Rosalind also. He is soooooo cute and has his Granny Gail wrapped around those tiny little fingers.

Well enough about the Kitts clan. Your family is always in my prayers and I anxiously await each day to read this site and check on your progress. I was serious when I said to call me. I will be glad to help in any way. Home #687-6818 Cell 384-4243.
