Marching Orders

Throughout this last year, and then some, you all have shown me what dedicated prayer warriors you are. Daily I am comforted and rest in the assurance that God is in control of my life and knows what's best for me. This gives me such peace.
What I'm asking for, is prayer for our sister in Christ, Lynne Croft. She goes in for surgery early tomorrow morning, for a rare form of pancreatic cancer. Her daughter, Haily, told me today that the doctor is optimistic. I'm guessing that means that they feel that they can get it all.
Pray that she will be comforted, and not fear, and that she will know that Jesus is more than enough for her, no matter what. She may be in the hospital for up to two weeks after, so continue going before the throne on her behalf. God bless you all.

Thank you, Tracie. Will pray. Please keep us updated on Lynn's condition. How old is Haily?

Thanks Maria,
I'll pass on any info. Lynne and her husband, Sandy, have three children: Lindsay -21?, Ben- 19, and Haily-16.

Tracie this is a beautiful add to your blog. Once again I am brought to having that sting in my eyes and a sore throat. Just like my bumper sticker says: My sister is my Hero!!! From the bottom of my heart I mean this. I love you more than there are words. Lynn and Sandy are so blessed to have such a wonderful friend as you!

Wow, those scriptures say it all. Really, there is power in the Word that stands forever.
You bet we're praying for our precious sister. Thanks for calling out the troops.

PS T, your sister is my hero, too.

Terri-ferri-bo-berri- Now don't you go making my throat hurt and eyes sting, too. You know that I love you more than you love me, so there. Don't argue with me.
As for Lynne and Sandy being blessed to have me for a friend, I think it's the other way around. Do you remember that I carpooled with Sandy to Sierra College in 79 and 80?(and survived!) Anyway, that was about the time I became a Christian and they gave me my first Bible. Lynne then discipled me for some time, even though they were newlyweds. They will always have a special place in my heart.

My Michele- I'm glad you could read the verses. I had a hard time making them out. Bad eyes?
That 'hero' business you speak of, you two- God gives you the strength to endure and rise above what comes into your life; neither of you would be any different if our roles were reversed.

that is wonderful news about Lynne.. I loved Sandy's letter...

God is a good guy!

I do sort of remember you carpooling with Sandy back in the late 70's early 80's... but wasn't I just a baby?

Still praying for Lynne to feel that peace that only comes from our wonderful creator!

Great news on Lynne. Sandy sent out a letter and I'll try to post it now on a separate post.

Tracie said...

Uh Terri, I just caught what you wrote about your age. If I remember correctly, you were getting ready to graduate and prepare yourself for the drive to Sierra, in the good old Toyota, at about 70+ mph, skipping classes and getting gigantic frozen yogurts. Sound familiar? Would a 'baby' do that?

NO a baby wouldn't do that, but a baby in the tummy might! kidding I wasn't preggers yet.
And I think it was about 90+ but don't tell your mom and dad! At least the doors were seatbelted shut if no one else was!

Tracie said...

Terri- Ah yes, the seatbelt that held the back door shut. It's a good thing we were so young and stupid. 90+? How did that car hold together? (besides the seatbelt)
