Thanksgiving Greetings

I'm praying a special blessing on all my friends this Thanksgiving Day. May you enjoy time with family and friends and remember the ONE who makes it all possible.

I played hooky from treatment this week...just couldn't face it. So I'm enjoying a few days with my kids without the burden of chemo junk.

I love all of you and am so thankful for your faithful friendship through this past year. I depend on your prayers and your support more than you may realize. It seems that when I face a particularly tough day, one of you will write or call and have just the right word of encouragement for me. That is the beauty of the network of prayer and the family of God.

Love and prayers,

Muddy Jordan

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Naaman was told by the prophet to dip seven times in the muddy Jordan. He was not happy about that at all. But by his obedience he got his miracle. Sometimes I wonder why I have to go down 'seven' times in this muddy Jordan of chemotherapy, but this is the way that God has chosen. I will be obedient and rejoice when I am clear of this cancer.

Thank you for checking in on me and for your prayers,

That HE might be glorified

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that HE MIGHT BE GLORIFIED.
Isaiah 61:3

Hello to all my friends and family. We are all doing pretty well. Looking forward to my chemo break in January, when my children will be out of school to help me enjoy it. God bless you all.
