{ Friday Foto Friends #39 }



This picture was taken by our daughter last evening and she posted it on Instagram with this description.....

"Are you ever literally awestruck at how God works things out? I was told some terrible news at the doctor's office two weeks ago tomorrow. The doctor literally told me it was possibly lymphoma and I had to go for a biopsy "stat." Those were his words. I walked out of his office and sat in my car and cried and cried....and cried the whole way home. But, I couldn't get the song lyrics, "I will praise you in this storm" out of my head. I was uncertain about what my future held. I even began pinning head scarf patterns in a private board on Pinterest. This morning, I got up and was at such peace either way. He ordains it. He is good. BUT this morning, after I went for a needle biopsy, that could possibly turn into outpatient surgery (again, doctor's words), the surgeon said it was just a mass of fat! Lol. I have lost about 25 pounds, and since then, is when this mass appeared. Typing this makes me laugh out loud! I can't praise him enough for a mass of fat and I literally can't quit smiling. And they didn't even have to do a biopsy!!!! Oh how I love my Jesus! I so hope you know Him. He is the only one who can bring perfect peace in a storm. And, Brant left some of his Trail Life stuff here, so I just ran to the church to take him his stuff and this beautiful sky greeted me as I walked out the door!!! Soli Deo gloria!!!!!!!!!"




Only God could end her day with such an awesome example of His promise to His children!

HOPE everybody has an awesomely blessed weekend.
