Keeping it short, simple, and oh so sweet tonight!

I'm halfway done with my healing sessions. Halfway there!
No adverse or allergic reactions today - glory be to the newborn king.

I had a great time with my friend, Kim Hooker, who flew down from Connecticut to sit with me.
She was here less than 24 hours and we talked for 12 of those hours, I'm sure - how cool is that!!!

Here we are together just after my healing session ended.

And here I am - who knew I was a hat person? I certainly didn't.
A woman in the room said she will bring me one that she bought for herself
but didn't like how it looks on her. She said, "It makes me look shorter and dumpier."
We all laughed about that.

Thanks be to God! All is going so well. So very well.

From Jesus Calling this morning: When adversity strikes and you thank me anyway, 
your trust in my sovereignty is a showpiece in invisible realms.
Fill up the spare moments of your life with praise and thanksgiving.
This joyous discipline will help you live in the intimacy of my presence.

Oh, yes, Jesus - I long to live in the deepest realms of intimacy in your presence.
I certainly wish I didn't have to go thru this adversity in order to get there
and I wish no one had to deal with this pain, this treatment, this sorrow,
but if it allows me to draw closer to you, to fall more deeply in love with you,
to know you better and to understand better the suffering of others
so that I can love them and serve them (and you) better,
then there may be a gem or two gleaned from this after all.
