God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

AN ANSWER TO PRAYER!!!!!

I was going to start out this message by saying "You won't believe this!"  Then I thought how silly that was!  We pray to God because we know He can help us ... & then when He does something we are surprised & say we can't believe it   : )

Remember the fax I sent to John's doctor, which she never responded to, describing exactly what happened to him, his symptoms prior to what happened, his family history, how concerned I was, & asking her if she would please consider ordering this one particular test for him to at least put our minds at ease about that particular condition?  Got a phone call from her nurse just a few minutes ago ... she ordered the test!  The quickest she could get him scheduled is Friday, October 21!  Happy Birthday to me!  Now we won't have to go to the hospital to get the records & we won't have to go through the stress of trying to get the doctor to refer him to a specialist or find one ourselves!

Part of me wishes she could've gotten the test scheduled sooner but I am just so happy that she scheduled it at all!  Please continue to pray that he will "hang on" till then   : )

Shirlee, I am so thrilled for you and for John. God does answer prayers but in his time not our own. You and I both should know that already, but we are so impatient and we worry tooo much. So proud there is good news. Will pray all will turn out for the best.
Hugs,
Angela
