Lacks Cancer Center Day 2-Hope!

“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all”                  Emily Dickinson

Yesterday, Pamela talked about a nurse named Hope.  Pamela felt it was a God hug while being in an  unwanted place of unfamiliarity.  Hope brought hope by bearing that word on her name tag.  A simple, but clear declaration of who she is hanging from her uniform.  Hope is defined as a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.  The Bible has lots to say about hope, such as, Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer (Romans 12:12).  Sometimes, it is hard to hope, to be patient during the tough stuff and to be in constant prayer.  However, it is our hope, our patience, and prayer that make all the difference.  Since Pamela called me her “Git er done” friend (which I told her made me feel like a license plate on a Georgia pick up truck), I would like us to do something else for Just Pamela.

1.  Be bearers of hope by sending the word itself, a quote about hope, a story full of hope,  or a scripture verse to plaster on her walls in the hospital or at home as a reminder of hope.

2.  Continue to be patient in the trial and be constant in prayer.

Pamela,  May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in Hope! (Romans 15:13)   I look forward to watching you run 13.1 miles and getting sweaty. This friend….aka…… the Georgia license plate slogan will  make sure you “git er done” along with the three or four others who heard you say it out loud last night.

Love Always,

    Two of my favorite verses: Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong power; the righteous runs into it and is safe. Pamela…you’re in my prayers daily!!!!

    Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a future.” This is my prayer for you today my friend!

    Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

    Leaning with you on our God of Hope, our healer and strength!

    Knows no fear
    Hope dares to blossom
    Even inside the abysmal abyss
    Hope secretly feeds
    And strengthens
    –Sri Chinmoy

    Hang on to the promises!!
    Sending Love and Hope
