Subject: Praise the Lord!!!


Just want to give ALL praise to the Lord for His faithfulness and also thanks to all who lifted me in prayer these past few days!!!  I felt the Lord's peace as I took the ct scans and as I waited for the results.  With my natural mental tendency towards 'reading into things', it isn't easy for me to be calm and I DEFINITELY felt the supernatural peace that comes from the Lord.  He gave me Psalm 92 and a chorus to focus on that  replayed over and over in my mind. The chorus was: "Let your Spirit rise up in me; You set my feet to dancing and my heart rejoicing and my 'voice' singing out Your praise."  My voice will SING praises to His name!!!


The results showed a large amount of radiotherapy scarring in the area where the vocal chord runs, which they concur damaged the left chord and left it paralyzed.  The doctor said I have a VERY strong voice considering the paralysis of the left chord that occured over 20 years ago.  My Dad asked me if I told him it came from ALL the years of exercising my voice (referring to the fact that I like to talk)!!!!  Anyway, he told me to buy a small personal voice amplifier to use whenever I need to speak to groups, as I won't have projection ability....unless of course the Lord miraculously heals that chord! 


Again.....thank you for lifting me before the throne of the Father!  His faithfulness and love are unfathomable and consistent!!!

PS Praise the Lord that we only had to pay $1049 of the $5000 for the 3 scans. Thank God for good insurance. Another prayer request is that my father Walter B. Smith is in the hospital in Kansas & they have removed fluid on his lungs. Praying for good results. God is able.

I appreciate your prayers too?
