Thank you for the Spark Goodie! I feel much better since the scans have been done and I've talked to the doctor about them. Now the next thing to get through is the MRI; if that is ok, hopefully I won't have as many doctor appointments keeping me busy.

Cheri, I thought your surgery was scheduled for next month. I'm hoping that your surgery was successful and that no cancer was detected. You are in my daily prayers and thoughts. I'm here for you. I'm embracing you in love, support and hugs.

Heavenly Father, as you know, I am facing a major health challenge in my life. I ask that you grant me the energy and determination to seek out and find the right physicians, treatments and programs; the courage and grace to follow them; and your peace and serenity to rest and restore my body, mind and spirit.. Amen.

Loving Father, I entrust myself to your care this day; guide with wisdom and skill the minds and hands of the medical people who minister in your Name, and grant that every cause of illness be removed, I may be restored to soundness of health and learn to live in more perfect harmony with you and with those around me. Through, Jesus Christ. Amen.
