Helene the Fighting Machine!!!

Hope 4 Helene

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31

Isn't this a gorgeous picture? I love Sedona! It is such a peaceful and spiritual place! When Helene came out to visit, we took a road trip to the beautiful red rock country. I managed to stay on my feet for this hike, however when we went to Slide Rock, my knee gave out on those slippery wet beautiful red rocks and I bit the dust big time. I know Helene had to be crackin' up cuz' I had just told her ot be super careful because of her back. Then boom...down I rear is now in the water, so my shorts are soaked! So as my friend picked me up when I fell, I want to pick her up. Sending you a cozy hot chocolate kind of night!


No email from Helene today. Wondering how the lung procedure went, and if she is feeling any better. Hoping the meds are helping and that she is resting comfortably.

Since I received the email from Helene saying the cancer had returned, I have heard many songs on the radio with uplifting messages. I know I hear these songs all the time, but have particularly tuned into their positive messages!

Two of my faves...

Everything rides on hope now
Everything rides on faith somehow
When the world has broken me down
Your love sets me free

I have seen the healing hand of God
Reaching out and mending broken hearts
So taste and see the fullness of his peace
And hold on to what’s being held out
The healing hand of God

Have a great evening!
