From Danbury, CT

This morning at grace, Mark prayed for the people of Paris.  I am so out of touch, I had to ask him what happened in Paris.  In my scripture reading today I was reading James 2:11-13…

For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not commit murder.” Now if you do not commit adultery, but do commit murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. So speak and so act, as those who are to be judged by the law of liberty. For judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy; mercy triumphs over judgment.

I pity the Muslim attackers on Judgment Day.  May they turn from the violence in their hearts before it is too late.

I was reminded of another violent act on our way through Connecticut this afternoon:

To Sandy Hook, CT

There’s a line in Fiddler on the Roof.  As they are being evicted from their little town in Russia, one man asks the rabbi, “Wouldn’t this be a good time for the Messiah to come?”  And the rabbi responds, “We’ll just have to wait for the Messiah somewhere else.”  I am waiting for Christ to return in power and set things straight.


 

I forgot to add an update from my mother in yesterday’s post:

We were able (by some fancy ‘footwork’ by daughter Sherill) and a quick trip back up to St. Vee to pick up another copy of all of Cal’s imaging records in the film library to take along with us to the Portland Vets, and to be there by 1:00 p.m. for a blood draw and a 1:30 appt to see several doctors.   We were told by the Ear.Nose.Throat  doc that there are “no” survivors of this type of thyroid cancer and what conditions can be expected at ‘the end.’  Then we saw the doctor who is only in this particular clinic at the Vets on Thursdays (thus the ‘fancy footwork!’).  He did some looking and prodding, and said we could have a 9:30 a.m. appt. at OHSU next Thurs, (the 19th) for ‘staging’ or ‘mapping’ out exactly where to aim the radiation and program it into the computer so beginning with the first treatment it won’t take all that long which will be the following week at OHSU where all of the radiation treatments will take place.   A “few to no survivors diagnosis” is a great place for God to do His healing work, isn’t it?  Y’all can join us in prayer for Cal and for an outcome that will astound the doctors Big TIME!
