The Dawn of a New Day



Isn't this sunset amazing - a reminder of the greatness of our God. The sunset here this week and





a new day dawned
in more ways than one

I want to say a great big thank you to all my blogging friends that have been praying for Alan along with literally hundreds both here and around the world. They did not find anything in his bladder yesterday when looking for a 'mass'. He is home now and getting used to the joy of not having the catheter that he has needed for the last six weeks. He will be undergoing some further tests and checks in two weeks time. So Alan is looking to getting back to normal and I am hoping for some R & R and catching up with you all.

Blogger tells me that I have now reached 500 posts. My records show that it is 486. I think blogger counts the ones that were deleted when I realised that I had already begun one previously.

This week I received comments from 10th March, don't know whether this is the fault of my server who linked in with Google at that time or a blogger issue. I was glad to receive them anyhow and apologies if I did not get back to you.

So pleased to hear about your husband. My husband recently had a biopsy that thankfully came back clear.

Dear Barbara, What happy news which I am certain will have made the sunsets and dawns look just that bit brighter than usual. These crises in our lives have a way of making us take much more notice of the beauty of our natural world.

This is such excellent news.
I bet you and Alan --and all your friends --breathed
a large sigh of relief.
Now for a little relaxation and recuperation
and, we hope, some relaxing in the garden.
This is so pleasing.
All best wishes and happy weekend.

That is good news for sure. Glad you can both get some rest now and I think normal is wonderful.

What joyous news about your husband. I'm so pleased to hear this...now your weekend can truly be filled with thanksgiving.

You'll both relax, I'm sure. :) I know if I was in your shoes I'd be exhausted. The not knowing is awful, but for no mass to be found. God is so good!

Take care, and enjoy one another!

That is wonderful news, Barbara. Both of you must feel a great sense of relief right now. I hope you can both relax and enjoy your summer, and that the upcoming round of tests and checks will also be good news.
