Scarlet Thread

My patchwork heart needs the mending of a scarlet thread.

Yesterday it was bruised with the news of my Dad’s cancer.

A piece has broken and needs the gentle stitching of heavens Hands.

Decorate my life with the “beautiful embroidery” of “scarlet thread” (Ex. 38:18).

Blood that flowed and is familiar with suffering.

Entwine my heart with Yours.

I still remember the raw emotion of when I first heard my brother's diagnosis of kidney cancer. I still remember that I needed to be carried in prayer as my words many times could not come...
please know my heart is also tied to yours..

"Jesus, You are interceding at the throne of mercy right now for Joy's dad and the family..please voice the words that bring healing, comfort, mercy, grace, provision, angels in fleshly form to surround..Thank You, Lord."

Sis: Courage to go ahead is always strengthened by the amazement of looking back at God's faithfulness!...Today my heart feels crushed but...I choose to trust in the sufficiency and the love of our Savior....
As Dad said...God is good and we'll see this through with HIM!!
Love you so much...alwaysfadecury
