JT, that will be a great experience. Remember that it is up to us to keep the fire lit. Often we get excited and invigorated by special experiences like this, but we let it die out when we get back to our day to day activities. What we should become excited about at special events is the love God has for us and the salvation He provided through His Son without our worthiness, and that never changes from day to day for God is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Get that spark and then carry it with you every day in your relationship with God! We have an enemy that wants our enthusiasm to decrease; do not let him win! Your heart knows what to do, my dear brother, so go with it! I'm eager to hear about it afterwards!
Tony, Jack, jjoey, Gators, Nathan, and all others who come here in peace, so good to see you. I keep you in my prayers. Mom is healing well and is resuming some normal lifestyle activities on her own, praise the Lord. I think she will be released from treatment in two weeks. Then we take up the discussion of further cancer or bypass surgeries. Pray for our wisdom in this decision making. There is the "quality of life" vs. "quantity of life" issue at stake. She is God's child and He will lead her to the right choice and my brother and I will support her (my sister is not a believer and may differ with Mom's choice but God will handle that as well!).
I am blessed every day by our Father and by the fellowship He provides with His other children!
