The Lord is My Shepherd

The Lord is My Shepherd

Psalm 23:1-6 (NASB) 
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. 
He makes me lie down in green pastures; 
He leads me beside quiet waters. 
He restores my soul; 
He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake. 
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; 
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; 
You have anointed my head with oil; 
My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, 
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. 

     After thinking and praying about it, I believe it is time to suspend regularly scheduled blog posts. I would never have imagined at the beginning of this journey that this blog would come to mean so much to me. I am most grateful that through the blog I have been able to keep in contact with so many of you.
     When is the right time to stop writing? I don't know. However, it will soon be one year since I was last hospitalized. At the moment, my condition has definitely stabilized.
     I appreciate so much those of you who have kept up with us and have prayed for us so faithfully. Your prayers have meant so much.
     The journey has not always been pleasant, it has not always been easy. Amyloidosis truly is a "nasty little disease." God has always been faithful! My own faith has been strengthened.
     We have many friends walking through "tall weeds." Hopefully this blog has been an encouragement to some of those people.
     This will not be my last blog post. If nothing else, I will keep you updated on the grandchildren with pictures. If anything significant changes (good or bad) I will let you know.

Dear God: Thank You for Your faithfulness. Your mercies are new every morning. Thank You for friends who have prayed for my family and have supported us. In Jesus' name. Amen. 

Until the "next time." God willing.

The following verses have significantly spoken to my heart in these most recent days:
Proverbs 17:6 "Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers."
Psalms 127 & 128

We have so much to be thankful for!
As the song goes,
"Through it all, through it all
I have learned to trust in Jesus,
I have learned to trust in God,
Through it all, through it all,
I have learned to depend upon His Word."

Praise Him~~~The Amazing "3 in 1"~ God, Jesus & the Holy Spirit

May His will be done in our lives as we trust Him to lead us as in Psalm 23~~~
Thanks for sharing,Bob,Patra & family!
Isaiah 40:39 I Peter 5:7...
Ephesians 6:10-18

In Christ's love & prayers,
Ruthie Quarles

Bob and Patra, It has been a blessing to pray for you and your family during the past two years. I am sad that it has taken 'tall weeds' to bring my mom and I back into your lives. It is wonderful to catch up with all of you and to watch and rejoice with your family as God blesses you in so many ways. You will never know how much your blog has encouraged so many, me included. We will continue to pray for you and your family. Please know how much we care and love you both. Carol Cahill and mom

Currently it appears like Wordpress is the top blogging
platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Take a look at my web-site: Air Max Femme
