God Is So Good!

After a long weekend of waiting we just got the results from our doctor.
They wanted the leukemia cells to be less than 5%......  The cancer cells in her marrow are at 0.2%..... that's less than 1%!  He said that is fantastic and we couldn't have asked for anything better at this point.

Clap your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy.
How awesome is the Lord Most High, 
the great King over all the earth!
Psalm 47:1&2 

Praise God, we are so thankful!!

The pictures are some of the posters that we've received with Bible verses and words of encouragement.  Thank you!

Psalm 103:1-5
1 Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name.
2 Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.
3 He forgives all my sins and heals A.L.L. my diseases;
4 He redeems my life from the pit and crowns me with love and compassion.
5 He satisfies my desires with good things, so that my youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Abbey, be renewed and soar like the eagle!

We love you!

Great news! We will continue to pray. Everyday when I get home Amanda says, "Is there any news about Abbey?" (We don't have a computer at home.) We are thinking of you all the time and praying as God enables. We will continue.

The power of prayer has never been so evident to me as it has the last 6 months...My orange bracelet reminds me minute by minute to pray for precious Abbey and all of your family. Jesus' blood was perfect and that's just what Abbey's is becoming...I'll never stop praising God for the blessings He's giving to you each and every day. Your faith is moving mountains and hearts for God. With Love, The Matthews' Family from Grace Church
