Dear Faithful Praying Family & Friends:
All I know about boxing is what I learned from the 1940’s film, “The Bells of St. Mary,” with Ingrid Bergman and Bing Crosby. Here is a quote from my friend, Georgia, encouraging me in my fight against breast cancer:
“The title of your blog [“Margo’s Corner“] reminds me of a boxing ring . . . We, your friends [and family], are standing and praying with you in your corner, helping you put on your gloves and head-gear: faith, courage, peace, as you go against your opponent, cancer and his cronies: fear, discouragement, etc., in the opposite corner.”
It occurs to me that each chemotherapy cycle is called a “round,” another handy reference boxing. Well, I am very grateful to have each of you in my “corner” because the bell is just about to ring: This coming Tuesday, November 17th, is the third round of chemo. Please continue to pray that the chemotherapy would be effective in eradicating any cancer cells. Also, please pray for a minimum of short-term side effects and for no long-term side effects.
By the way, the technician said that the [unofficial] results of my echocardiogram look normal. I’m very thankful!
“I will lay me down in peace and take my rest: for it is Thou Lord only that makest me dwell in safety. Into Thy hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit, for Though hast redeemed me, O Lord Thou God of Truth. Amen.’” [Lancelot Andrews, English clergyman, 1555-1626]
