Birthday Thanks 5/4/03

A note from Cecillia on her birthday:

Thank you all for your warm wishes on my birthday. I apologize for the “form letter” approach, but it makes the most sense right now.

I really did have a wonderful birthday in spite of the circumstances. I had my family around me as well as a few friends. I had a few gifts and a made to order meal. I also had many smiles from Les. What more can you ask for?

Your prayers are truly being felt. I was given a verse recently that fits so well with my attitude and outlook. I’d like to share it with you.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace, as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

You may question how I feel hope, joy and peace in a time like this. My only answer is that I serve the powerful God that is bigger than the smallest cancer cells. He’s bigger than a hectic schedule. He’s bigger than the uncertainty that lies ahead. No matter what lies ahead for me, I will always know that my Lord cares for me and will help me to be OK. Please know that He is there to care for you and to help you be OK too.
