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."

I am thinking about you today and praying for you. We don't know each other but I ran across your blog by a friend of a friend asking for prayer for you. I check everyday to see if you've updated anything new. You inspire me!

I, too, am praying for you today. I know this gamma knife thing has done wonders for so many, and I pray God uses this to bring you healing and many, many days of blessing. The footprints you leave behind you will help so many others as they try to find their way on this same journey! Thank you for your courage, faith, and inspiration!!!!
