Radiation and Chemo-therapy are really not that good for the human body. That means that things will get worse before they get better. Poor Devree is experiencing it, and poor Shana is helplessly watching the process. So they really need our thoughts and prayers right now.
I know that LDS temples refresh their prayer rolls every 2 weeks. I’m not sure about how often prayer circles change their names in the Lutheran, Baptist, and other faiths. Anytime that you have an opportunity, please add Devree & Shana to your lists again. The Lord tells us that we must ask before we can receive. We really need to lifted and helped through this process, and I know that prayer works. I have felt the lifting power when I absolutely had nothing left.
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 in the sand,
is when I carried you."
I can tell you that during our low points, I know without a doubt that we were carried. Your many prayers made that possible. Thank you so much!
