“If you remove the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger and speaking wickedness, and if you give yourself to the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then your light will rise in darkness. . . . You will be like . . . a spring of water whose waters do not fail.” (Isaiah 58:1–11)

From my favorite teacher, Pastor Tim Keller —

Dear Praying Friends,

I will shortly be returning to the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD in order to spend April doing a variation of the immunotherapy that I received last June. It was successful in eradicating 99% of the tumors. However, new tumors have developed.

They are unfortunately in some fairly inconvenient places, so the doctors encouraged us to go through the treatment again, this time targeting a different genetic marker of the cancer.

It was brutal last June, so we approach this with an awareness of how much prayer we need.

Please pray for our trust and dependence on God, for his providential oversight of the medical preparations now in process, and for our desire to glorify God in whatever comes our way. Thank You.

“The quickest path to joy and fruitfulness is generosity.”
— John Rinehart


This morning really felt like retirement. A leisurely 9:30 appt. at the vet for Rudy’s nail trim. Then, leisurely miles west to Hillsborough to re-up Rudy’s groceries at Paws at the Corner. There, he is welcomed with treats and new friends. Last stop, Weaver St. grocery where we take a sidewalk table in the morning sun and retrieve select pastries from inside. The three of us sate in the 67-degree November, sun-warmed breeze. Ahhh.

Resigning to head homeward, we return over undulating hills of eastern Orange County farms –but not before reporting to animal control that a stray cow is ambling loose in a front yard as we egress Hillsborough proper.

Good News!
