God bless and be with you. I just found out about this life challenge you are faced with. As I write this, you are in the full throws of surgery and the battle for your life. I don't pretend to know what that must mean emotionally and physically. What I do know is that you are not alone. God is with you! He knows your every thought, need, fear and the like. Please rest in His love and let Him carry you through this. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. I will be sending this to my bible study group for their prayers as well. Power in prayer my friend. Love the 08 tips. I will take them to heart. God bless, Chris Lurie aka Elliot's wife ; )
