In my Bible reading this morning I read the following passage in Lamentations.
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”
The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.It is good that one should hope and wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord.
Many friends and readers have told me that since hearing about the early detection of my breast cancer, they have been motivated to schedule a mammogram for themselves. Fantastic! Please do that! Early detection is so important! I was guilty of taking my good health for granted, and I did not take seriously my doctor's recommendation of having a mammogram two years ago. I did not want to make the time for another appointment, another school day disrupted. But, thankfully, this year I chose to have a check-up and do all of the recommended tests for women my age. I encourage you to take care of your health too.
I am not sure when I will be able to update again. I appreciate all of your encouragement and prayers. Saying, "thank you" seems so inadequate, but I have been enormously blessed by all of you!
