Vince had his chemo today and I still am in awe of how great he is doing! This is truly the best that he has done with any of his chemos. As soon as we got to the facility he was much more relaxed since we didn't have to drive in traffic for over an hour to get there and his blood pressure was excellent and the chemo began!
The nurse that we had today is so wonderful and we have built a greatrelationship with her since October of last year when my friend introduced us on the phone. She is an infusion nurse and worked at my friends office once a week and my friend was sharing Vince's story with her and she mentioned that they were opening up a new UCLA infusion facility inWestlake and the rest is history! We have been looking forward to having his infusions there since that time and it's finally a reality! Thank you, Jesus for paving the way and guiding us through this journey and bringing those people into our lives! I have so many stories of the most wonderful people that have come along side us and brought us strength during this time. We are so blessed! Thank you Aunt Diane for coming to visit with us today! We really enjoyed having you there:)
Here is a devotion from a wonderful pastor, Greg Laurie. I thought is was quite appropriate to go along with my post today.
God’s Secret Agents
Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation? —Hebrews 1:14
Make no mistake about it: angels are actively involved in the lives of the people of God, and in the affairs of men in general.
One of the reasons we may not be personally aware of the presence of angels in our lives is that they are doing their job properly.
Angels generally operate undercover. Theirs is a vast world of intelligent, powerful spirit beings. Angels are invisible, and they remain that way most of the time, except on very rare occasions. As we see from Scripture, God will sometimes clothe angels with a human form.
Angels are God’s secret agents, not drawing attention to themselves, but instead doing the bidding of God. They have a specific work and ministry in the life of the Christian.
That certainly gives us hope in these troubled and dangerous times in which we are living. When we think of all the violence, chaos, and danger in the world today, it is comforting to know that God’s angels are watching out for us.
Angels may not help you find a parking place, but you can know this: they are God’s secret agents, powerfully and effectively doing the work He has called them to do.
