MRI Results: 10-23-17

Psalm 66:19 "But truly God has listened; He has attended to the voice of my prayer."

Wayne just called me from the hospital and said his scan came back clear. We are praising the Lord for yet another clear scan. We do not know why God has chosen to answer this way, but we are so thankful for every day God gives our family with Wayne. This scan in particular meant a lot to me because I have received so much bad news lately. One of the brain cancer warriors we have been praying for passed away a few weeks ago. My heart breaks for his family, but we rejoice that he is now in heaven and is no longer suffering here on this earth. Yesterday I heard about a friend who is flying to visit her brother who is now on hospice for brain cancer. So much death and loss around us...brain cancer, fires in CA, violence in Chicago, etc. It is a constant reminder that this home is not our own. I'm thankful that God is good, no matter how awful life seems around us. We may never understand this side of heaven, but I am thankful for serving a God that is good and in control, despite all the chaos around us.

Wayne and I had the opportunity to attend a hospital gala for one of his clients. I always enjoy these events because it gives me a chance to dress up and play "Cinderella". We had a fabulous meal at the Palmer House. There is something amazing about hot food that you didn't prepare and that you don't have to clean up! 

Here are some pictures from Saturday, as well as pictures from our canoe trip when we went camping, and pictures of the boys at a Bulls game (free tickets are always a great way to have fun!).
