Another Gamma Knife

So another quick update. I promise when I have all of my ducks in a row I will write a complete update but for now this is all I got ha ha.  A few weeks ago 3 new lesions were found on my brain and tomorrow I will have Gamma Knife Again to treat them.  Am I excited.....NO......but I find strength in the blessing that I have options and that there are treatments still out there for my brain lesions. So let me not lie to you when I say I will walk in there tomorrow morning not of my own strength but because my father walks with me and he has promised never to leave me even when I feel alone. 

Footprints in the Sand

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there were one set of footprints.
This bothered me because I noticed
that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from
anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints.
So I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during
the most trying periods of my life
there have only been one
set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most,
you have not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The times when you have
seen only one set of footprints,
is when I carried you."
