What a friend we have in Jesus!

Hello friends!  Devo developed a slight problem today for which there may not be a cure!  It seems that he and his mother were watching the telecast of the Champions Tour today, and Devo developed severe eye strain trying to find me on the tube!  (only kidding). The poor kid watched the entire telecast looking for his old dad to make a good shot or a long putt, but unfortunately, it wasn't to be!  Both Charlotte and Nicole tried very hard to console me after my seventy three, but with the cold weather, the high winds, the slippery greens, AND my advancing age, I wasn't all that unhappy with my effort!  I guess the girls don't think that I am a bit past my prime, but I'll guarantee that Devon realizes that I'm not as good as I once was!  Of course they all want me to play well, as do I, but at this stage in my life, shooting a low score on tour isn't my number one priority!  I'd love to play great, and will continue to try my best, but after the round is over, my thoughts return to Devon and the family, and staying out of the way, so Jesus can do His thing, and continue healing Devon, which brings me much comfort!  I'll write about Devon's progress, when that applies, and I'll write about his setbacks when they occur, but one thing will remain consistent!  I WILL CONTINUE TO GLORIFY JESUS!  Because we have faith, we have hope!  Because our faith grows, we trust Jesus more, and we believe more!  Worrying about our circumstances has never proven to be a positive activity!  But a sure way to distance yourself from that practice, is to spend more time in His Word, which will change negatives into positives, and will change uneasiness and impatience, into hopeful perseverance!  Devon is a case study in what putting your hopes in the Lord will do for what looks like a very gruesome set of circumstances!  His faith carries him through each day, but not only carries him through, but ELEVATES him above the normal stress level he should be encountering, as the world would suggest!  He's patient, he's joyful, he's optimistic, and he is confident!  THANK YOU JESUS!  


“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.  ( Matthew 5:6)


If you are looking for satisfaction, search His Word!  Goodnight and God bless you all!  Dana
