Waiting...

Just wanted to say 'Good Morning' and let you know that I am here. It is a crazy day....house to finish cleaning as many people arrive this evening, errands to run, final appointment at 4:15 with Plastic surgeon so that he can mark me for surgery tomorrow, church tonight and then family arrives around 9:00PM.

I had wanted to post Part 2 of my journey, and hope to do so before days end. We'll see how it goes. I should also know surgery time sometime this afternoon. I'll post it here, as many have been asking.

Thank you so much for all of your cards received, phone calls, emails and comments on FB and here. Please know how much I love you all. I'm so sorry I can't respond back to all of you personally and tell you how much you mean to me. God is carrying me in His mighty grip today.

As I lingered long with Him this morning in prayer and reading my Bible....He ministered again His attributes to me....His character.....who He is. He is a loving and gracious God. He gives good gifts and His mercy is new every morning. He is and will continue to carry me.

In Psalm 44:3 He spoke these words to my heart:

"For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; But it was Your (God's) right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, Because You favored them."

Psalm 43:5

"Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God."

He will deliver me. He will fight this battle for me. I can't. I have no power over cancer....but God does. He will fight. And I rest in the fact that the battle has already been won. My eyes look to my Savior today, and will rest there as I wait. I stand confident, yet so very weak and fragile. Thank you for praying for me today.

I'll update more later.......

Much love,
Stacy

Hi Stacy -
i don't even remember how God led me to your blog... but i have been crying and praying right along side of you! this morning you were on my mind as i read from Psalms 121 - "I look up to the mountains, does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over Israel never slumbers or sleeps. The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord STANDS BESIDE YOU AS YOUR PROTECTIVE SHADE. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord keeps you from all harm and WATCHES OVER YOUR LIFE. The Lord keeps watch over your as you come and go, both now and forever." I pray this Psalm for you as you walk into this new season of your life. Blessings to you and your family.
Lovingly, Diana Perkey
