Nancy didn't tell us cause she didn't want to spoil our fun. But, while we were away, our oldest child, Connie, went into the hospital with severe pain in her stomach and chest. Through tests, they determined her problem to be as a result of stones leaving her gall bladder and lodging in her pancreas.

Now, this is such a rare occurrance, the Dr's didn't know what to do. But, Connie's Aunt Dolly knew what was needed and asked the members of her church to pray. Yesterday, they ran an extensively long MRI scan on Connie and the stones had disappeared. Gone completely. No trace of where they went. Now, I don't know how you feel about it but, if an old rusty car is sitting in a field one day and it's gone the next, without any evidence of being towed, or otherwise carted away, it's a miracle. And, I think the same has happened where Connie and her stones are concerned. And, we're all very thankful. Because, we were told the stones in her pancreas was life threatening.

It's customary to ask for prayers when someone is ill, asking for a speedy recovery. But, in this instance, It would gladden my heart if you would join us and say a prayer of thanksgiving.

Later, I'll tell about how my cousin and I plaster "W-04" stickers on his Son-in-laws bumper.

Yes as important as praying for His help is giving Him thanks for hearing and answering our prayers.
Sometimes miracles are so amazing it is difficult for our human minds to understand and accept.
We have a wonderful, loving and powerful God.

Sometimes I think of what I would do without my faith in God and prayer. I believe I'd be a goner.
Glad to know Connie is on the mend. Bless you all.
PS. the W.'04 sticker tale sounds to be a good'un.

What did you expect prayers to do? True, they're not always answered in the way you expect, but they are always answered.

And we always want the first answer.
Praise the LORD that he sends the right answer and what we need, not what we want.
