Chemo Break

I have had a two-week break from Chemotherapy. I had a minor infection one week, then a very low white blood cell count the next. I go in tomorrow to see my doctor and possible treatment. It was a nice break, especially the last few days when I've actually felt good. But, God knows the way that I take...because He has arranged it.

Will check in again soon.

His eye is on the sparrow

I was so blessed to be in service this morning. Because of my Chemo schedule I am able to be in church maybe once every two weeks or so. My husband preached an encouraging message on the Fifth Sparrow.

Matthew 10:29 "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. "

Luke 12:6 "Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?"

In Luke we find there is a fifth sparrow thrown in for nothing, as it were. Sometimes we feel like nothing, of no value, but YOUR FATHER cares and loves us even though... The scripture tells us that WHILE we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. And yet as Christians we are so hard on ourselves for every fault. He STILL loves us and will bear us up.

The word sparrow in these passages is really the diminutive form for baby or small sparrow. No matter how small you feel you are of value. To your Heavenly Father and to me. Thank you all for your prayers and concern. God bless you today.
