Dad Update

Thank you all for your prayers. My dad's surgery went well today and he is at home resting. It will take about a week to find out if they got it all or if the cancer has spread. We are hopeful. I am so lucky to have great friends that I can call on for prayer and now with the blogging world I have another extension for prayer warriors. I am so grateful.
Last week was crazy but Friday night I was able to connect with the girls for dinner and fellowship. We usually have a cookie exchange but with money tight and time slipping away we chose to just be together. Sometimes we tend to think things have to be grand when really the best part of any gathering is time spend with good friends. I am so lucky to have many amazing women in my life.
Our girl is in her finals week and we are praying her through. She's feeling good about chemistry and that is answered prayer.I know it's important to weed out students that are pre-med but do they have to strip away all their confidence? We had a little talk about capabilities and how God has made her so capable.It made me think of this verse:
Philippians 4:6-8 (New International Version)
6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

This really applies to my dad, my daughter , my life. May you have peace this week!
