Well..... what do you do when you team is down by almost 20 points?
You remember to update your website!
We love cheering for Memphis Basketball, but tonight, yelling "MSU" to a deaf screen is...well... sort of - familiar! :) Maybe things will be different by the time I'm done.

Tomorrow is a busy day. Frank is getting his blood drawn at Bapt. Outpatient in the morning. If he's low, he'll get what he needs and tidy him up for the weekend. In the waiting time, he's going to next door, literally, and get everything set up to begin radiation to 2 spots that the doctor wants to "protect". The 2 areas are the shoulder and upper back. Shrinking the myeloma lesions now will prevent possible fractures in these areas later. The radiation seems to be giving Frank the fastest relief with the fewest side effects. We are thankful to have this option and be able to close to home for the treatment.

Chandler is having her wisdom teeth out in the morning. She's suppose to be playing the piano in front of judges at Festival on Saturday morning. Please pray for her too as she tries to do her best under less than ideal circumstances.

This week has flown by. It's been busy, and filled with emotional highs and lows. It never ceases to amaze me how God is there to meet every need, in every way. It's not just in the 'big' ways, and not just in the Joys, but also in those little hurts - even the ones you never mention out loud. Oh, how I love Him! And, oh, how He loves you and me!

"Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!" Isaiah 30:18

p.s. Memphis is down by 6 now..... I can hear Frank yelling from downstairs! :) I hope we can do it!
Go Tigers!

I saw something on Facebook this morning and immediately, thought of you and your family.

"Happy moments... praise God. Difficult moments... seek God. Quiet moments... worship God. Painful moments... trust God. Every moment... thank God"

Your community of friends and family are all right here, praying for you in all moments.
