Our small group from church met tonight at our host's house. A man in our group who, sings in our praise team, is having surgery tomorrow morning. He has a growth on his thyroid (at the base of his throat) the size of an almond. We won't know at least until after the surgery if it is cancerous, if not later. He is self-emloyed an his wife works in their business. We (about 12 or so) held hands and prayed over him. We know he is in God's hands.
Another friend/coworker who used to attend our church, has a son who has just been moved to the Pelican Bay prison. I'd never heard of that one, but apparently the very hardened, serious criminals are there. I don't know what he did and his mom is in denial. He has a small daughter that barely knows her daddy. There but by the grace of God, go I.
If anyone happens on to my blog...be sure to send up a prayer for these 2 families!
