Carol Wilson Update

Stage 4 Cancer brought many challenges--and also a host of loving and praying friends. Almost-daily postings to this site are to help my friends walk with me through this journey, and to express my gratitude to them and especially to God...On 7/8/08 Carol passed through that final curtain of death and is now healed. We thank God for her life and "arrival"! Chuck

Busy Month

It has been a busy month with travel, medical tests and decisions.  I enjoyed spending several days with some of the family members at the lake over the 4th and am thankful to have the health and strength that the Lord provides to continue to travel.  As usual, the fireworks at the lake were outstanding but being with family members is absolutely the best.  We don’t see each other as often now that we are nearly twice the distance apart, but we make good use of every hour that we have when the opportunity comes.  Hopefully I will be able to get together with other family members shortly. 

It seems that my respiratory problems are taking a toll on my heart, so at the suggestion of my pulmonologist I am now seeing a cardiologist.  My EKG left some questions so I recently had an Echo which confirmed potential problems which has generated an upcoming appointment with the hospital cardiologist to determine the advisability of having an Angio which does not sound like much “fun.”  As it comes to mind, please pray that the Great Physician will give wisdom to both the medical people and myself

As I continued to read through the Psalms this morning, I was challenged by Psalm 71 which appears to have been written by an older person, possibly King David in his later years.  He reminds us that even in our older years, we should continue to be an active testimony to those younger people in our circle of influence; “Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.  Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come.” (Acts 71:17-18)

I trust that each of you will have a blessed weekend!
