Today is Chemo Number 4

This is my last hard Chemo. I'm a little anxious! Chemo 3 hit me pretty hard but I was still able to lead worship the Sunday after my chemo. This Sunday the Trio I'm in is suppose to do a special in both of our morning services. I am also suppose to lead worship in our 10:30 a.m. service and in our evening service on Sunday.

I have been so blessed to have people that care about me take me to my chemo visit and sit with me. My husband took me to my first visit, My friend Maria took me to my second visit, my daughter-in-law took me to my third visit and today my dear mother is going to take me. I have women coming up to me at church asking me when it is their turn to take me. It truly brings me to my knees. I don't feel like I deserve such wonderful treatment but God has placed people in my life that love and care about me deeply. I've really done nothing to deserve such love and kindness but I am being blessed. I am so very grateful.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

I turn this all over to you Lord....You have carried me so far, I give you all the Glory.

There's nothing like a support network of friends and family. YOU are so blessed. And you're taking this like a trooper. Uber-impressed, Lori. :~D

I truly felt it an honor to take you today. I was Blessed by just seeing how GOOD you look and how wonderful you are doing. I see God in such a mighty way carrying you through all of this.
I am Blessed to see such a wonderful person, who does deserve the best because you are not only my child that I love so very much yet God loves you even more because He already gave His life for each of us.
I am so Thankful for all of our Prayers being answered in such a way that it can only come from our Lord.
Love
MaMa

I was so excited to see you up front today leading worship and in the trio - knowing that you had your chemo on Friday. You amaze me Lori - your faith, your strength, your love for Christ. Remembering back to the days of the Packard Road building and how far you've come in sharing your talent in praise to God. You truly have a reason to praise Him. You and Jim and the kids will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. May God continue to bless you, friend....Liane sends her love and hugs and kisses too!
