Grandfather Update

For those of you who are reading this:

Just thought I'd let you know that my grandfather passed away this evening (2-4). He died free of pain and just in time (he was starting to really feel the effects of the chemo and cancer). Thank you all for your prayers, and please continue to pray for my dad and my grandmother.

Is everyone still reading this? Still around? still alive?These past few mths have been wow in many ways. The Lord has been breaking me. The storms have only been more of a "thunderstorm" than a tornado but Praise the Lord! Ive been learning about suffering. I want to suffer. I want to get past "Americanized Christianity" and PRESS ON to the real stuff. I get sick of the selfishness us Americans have!!! ugh! I have been blessed on 06 so far to go to Passion and learn SOOO much and get to know people. Oh it was so awesome to get to know people!!! People are amazing!!! I have gotten to hear John piper preach and Beth Moore. Wow the Lord has let me see new incredible people of God. I got to be lead by Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, Matt Redman, Charlie Hall, Watermark, etc to the thrown!! It was AMAZING!Then if that didnt begin my year right, I got to be a leader on the SMIC winter retreat. Oh what a punch in the face in more than one way! I was alone. I was used to being with all my friends etc but no, I was by myself. It was such a wake up of how my world has changed. I praised the Lord that He is my stronghold. I got to hear Matt Sutliff teach. Amazing guy. that blew me away too that He was in "my age" of friends. The speaker of the retreat. am I getting old or what!?!?! All He said was RIGHT ON to what I have been learning, like i said earlier bout the suffering. He talked in detail bout "taking up our cross". I am at the point where I see how my life is so uncertain. I have so many decisions to be making, its kinda scary but I am excited to see what the Lord will do if we are just open!!I graduate in a little over a year. Grad school? Where? Go straight to teaching? Where? SOO MANY DECISIONS>Anyways, I just wanted to update everyone in whats going on in the non-stop world of Heather.I cant wait to hear whats going on with yall and what the Lord is doing in everyone's life!!!Until then.....................................For Him and His Glory.......................HeatheRJoy

God is faithful...

God is faithful to me despite of my unfaithfulness to Him.

I wanted to post something, and that is what's on my mind. He's been faithful in showing me this lately. It just blows my mind, basically.

Love Y'all!

To go along with Jason...

Hey y'all, just a quick additional request to go along with Jason's mentioned before: A lot of y'all probably already got word of this, but Clay adn Jordan Willingham's grandad is going in for surgery tomorrow (Wednesday) morning to work on a brain tumor. Definitely needs prayer. May God's will be done.

I Know GOD is bigger than any disease -- (Prayer Request)

Hey Guys!
Ok, so I have an urgent request. My grandfather (dad's dad) has had cancer. We've known this, we knew it was in the stomach area and on the adrenals (kidney area) and that it was inoperable. We've known this for about a week. Today he went in to get some more tests run, and the results were not good. The cancer had spread and is nearly taken over his entire stomach area and is moving into his bones. As we already knew, the doctors said they could not operate, and since chemo is not very successful in this kind of cancer, they will not be doing any therapy. He asked them for a time table and the doctors would not give him one, so we don't know if that is good news or bad new.
I'm not 100% sure of his salvation. I know he claims the Lord as his Savior, but I'm not totally convinced. Now granted, I don't see him often (as he lives in Ohio), but it's just something else to pray about. My grandmother is saved and she seems to be doing as well as she can.
Just wanted to let you guys know, and let you know I appreciate the prayers. Thanks guys.

Jason's post and a little thought myself

Jason added his post to amber's post as a comment so I thought Id post it here so everyone could see.

Hope you guys enjoyed Thanksgiving as much as I did. It was nice to just chill and not have a crazy schedule for once. I really had an opportunity to just hang out with my family. Me and my brother got to shoot some hoops and spend some time together, which we haven't had much of lately. I thank God for having such an awesome brother, and for the relationship that we have. It's nice to have someone around that I can just hang out with without the drama of a normal friend. So overall, a great day. I think I gained about 20 pounds though. Hope you guys are doing good. God Bless y'all. -Jason H.

My thoughts:::::::::
I had such a wonderful time with my family. I hope all of you did too. I got to go to huntsville today to spend time with my family and we all had so much fun. I love being in hville. I could live there. Mountains all around while being in the valley. Houses and beautiful streets everywhere that could be on father of the bride. hmmm... my dad would like to move. It would be great. God's will alone.
I hope you looked for God in places you might have missed Him.
Prayer request: my summer. I am praying for the Lord to show me what to do in a lot of areas of interest and opportunities. I have many options and I know summer is a while away however for certain things, i have to pursue them now. God is ALL KNOWING AND IN CONTROL!!
til then....................HeatherJoy
