January 8, 2012 ~ From Pastor Jim

Greetings to you at Prince of Peace this morning!  This is Pastor Jim.  I am home from the hospital waiting for results of biopsies.  I know many of you are wondering how I am feeling.  I can describe my feelings in one word–thankful.  I am so thankful for you, your care and your prayers.  You surprised me this week.  Though I am a person who shows emotion every once in a while, I usually don’t get emotional about “things”.  However, when Pastor Chad brought a prayer shawl to the hospital for me from Prince of Peace it was almost like a sacrament to me.  The first thing I did was give thanks for this sign of your prayers.   Your prayers are a strength to me.  I was moved.  Not only did it remind me of your prayers, it also reminded me to pray.  Although I have prayed for healing, most of my praying has been prayers of thanks.  I have a wonderful family, both at church and at home. I am feeling no pain.  I am hopeful.  I know the doctors will have their prognosis next week and suggested treatments. They have been very good to me and I am amazed at their skill and professionalism.  But know that I am well aware that the one whose word really counts is the one to whom I belong, Jesus, my Lord.  I am in the best hands and trust him whatever happens.   I hope to see you all again soon.    God bless you all!
