Billy Jean's Knocking At My Door

When I was in high school I can vividly remember walking to auto shop class singing, "Billy Jean's Knocking At My Door," and being corrected by someone telling me that those were NOT the words to that song. Facebook and Twitter are awry with memories of songs and happenings. He was on top of the world, and then he fell. I am sure I will be listening to some old MJ music over the next couple of days, and it will be all over the television.

Farrah Fawcett, I must have been about 12 years old and I asked my mom if I could put "the" poster up on my wall. I wanted to look just like her. She was a Texas girl, so she had even more than her looks going for her. She always seemed a bit ditzy when being interviewed and then their was the infamous David Letterman interview that really solidified she was a bit air headed. But then I watched her story on cancer and gained renewed respect and amazement for just how strong she was and how hard she fought to win her battle with cancer. I pray for her son, Redmond, who seems to have lost his way and who loves his mom so very much.

What else is happening? Working on the computer, ladies class in the morning, cleaning the house and getting ready for Rob's dad to visit us. Busy days. I spent some much needed time in scripture this morning and I have had a more productive day than I had hoped. Starting my day grounded in the Lord is such a blessing.

Many people from church know Jan Greenwood who used to live in Abilene was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and started her chemo journey yesterday. She has a blog at www.jangreenwood.blogspot.com if you want to keep up with her and support her with your prayers and comments to her blog.

Jack is doing well. Taking summertime for all it's worth. I received a note from his radiologist and neurosurgeon last week saying that the spots that are showing subtle change in his brain (different part from the original tumor site) are not presenting in typical tumor fashion. So what that means, nobody knows what is growing in Jack's head, it is not jumping out at them as cancerous at this time, but as it is ever so slightly growing they will continue to monitor it and see what happens. The spots will not pose a health risk immediately to him, so they will wait to biopsy if need be later.
Praying they are gone before our next trip. I have changed our family water supply over to distilled, I feel good about not feeding him aluminum with every refreshing glass full of water any more.

Praising God for His faithfulness along our journey.
