"Great Is Thy Faithfulness"

Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.

The author of this hymn, Thomas Obediah Chisholm, wrote these words based on Lamentations 3:22-23.

"His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness."

As many hymns are, Thomas admits there was no dramatic story behind his writing these words. While serving the Lord in Vineland, NJ, Thomas sent several poems to his friend, musician William Runyan, who was so moved by this one that he prayed earnestly for special guidance in composing the music.

As we sang this song this past Sunday morning in church, I could not help but reflect how God has been with me every day of this journey. He gives me strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow; Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Now for my health report. I did have another allergic reaction this month (2.5 days vs. 5 days two months ago). I saw the doctor this morning for my monthly check up. Since the reaction wasn't as intense, we will try Temodar, again, in August and see what happens. He also proposed the theory of sun exposure, along with taking the Temodar being a possible cause.

He had the MRI report from Friday. As compared to my MRIs in December and March, there is complete stability.....no change!

Take time to reflect on the new mercies He gives EVERY day...
