Answered Prayers for Sharon

For those of you who have lifted Sharon Lowry and her family in prayers since the discovery of a brain tumor, I want you to know your prayers are being answered.  While we currently don't have a lot of details, we do know the biopsy was performed and they are awaiting results.  Sharon came home from the hospital on Friday and received visitors yesterday.   I baked a pound cake to take to them, bought her a gift and card and Allen and I went by for a brief visit.  She looked radiant.  Though her ability to speak has been involved, she is able to articulate her thoughts very well.  I encourage you to visit the site set up for the Lowry family.   I have included it in "My Favorite Links" area of my blog.
She and Paul want you to know how much they appreciate your prayers.  I've heard from some of you that you are praying for them.  I thank you, one and all.  Prayer is faith in action and faith without action is dead.  We can come to the Lord boldly, not with pride and self confidence, but with an overflow of assurance in Him.  He is in control of everything that is in existence.  Believe that His goodness and graciousness are at work in and through you.

Today, February 21st is our son, John's 18th birthday.  There are no insignificant birthdays.  We may come to the age when we say "I've stopped celebrating birthdays.  I don't like getting older."  I say "each and every birthday is a reason to celebrate the gift of life God gave us and the gift of the lives of the ones we love." 

God's love is abundant; God's love is amazing; God's love is absolute!

This is the day the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it!!

Love, Nan

  1. I hope this comment isn't too personal - When we married, my husband was convinced that he'd never live past 50. When he reached that milestone, I gave his such a party! Now he is 78, not doing so well, but still living! We rejoice in every birthday! This is the day the Lord has made!
