It's here! What now?

The first infusion of stem cells is here!!!  On Tuesday, October 18th, at 2:00 we will begin the process.  Look for an update on the blog on Tuesday.  Due to the evening Bible Study at church, it may be a little late, depending on how long it takes for the process.

We’ll know more details after we meet on Tuesday.  So what now?  We wait, pray, hope, and trust.

A few weeks ago, I read Golf’s Sacred Journey:  Seven Days at the Links of Utopia, by David L. Cook.   The movie “Seven Days in Utopia” is based on the book.  Utopia is an old goat ranch, with what most might think of as a less than ideal driving range and golf course.  It surrounds a cemetery.  But in spite of the conditions of the course, Johnny teaches players how to redefine and improve their game, along with lessons for life.   Simply there were three components to his teaching:  See, Feel, Trust.

The book is also about a journey of faith.  In the end, it’s all about a relationship with God, through his son Jesus.  After the end of the week long lessons, Johnny teaches the most important lessons:
SEEING God’s face
FEELING his presence
TRUSTING his love.

Even though I’m definitely not a golfer, I do hope and pray that I can regain my balance and play miniature golf again on the family vacation at Galveston.  And I hope that I can “Master” Johnny’s most important teachings.  What now?  It’s time to SEE, FEEL, and TRUST with all my heart.

I Chronicles 16:11
Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.

Matthew 28:20b
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Psalm 32:10
Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD’s unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
