Looking Forward.

I am looking more years of being Breast Cancer FREE!

All is well!

This lovely sewn portrait is an applique on a Breast Cancer Quilt in one of my doctor's offices that I visited today. It was too lovely to pass up, so with permission I took a pic of the quilt and focused on this one for my post tonight. I wish I knew who did this to give her due credit for her lovely work. I added the white printing.

It says what I felt today...Looking forward...

Day by Day and with each passing moment,
Strength I find to meet my trials here,
Trusting in my Father's wise bestowment,
I've no cause for worry or for fear,
He whose heart is kind beyond all measure
Gives unto each day what He deems best
Lovingly it's part of pain and pleasure
Mingling toil with peace and rest.

Day By Day Oscar Ahnflet, 1813-1882

My wonderful husband accompanied me on to my follow up today. We both anticipated GOOD NEWS...but were prepared. I was so happy to have him along..a comforting friend...and my dinner date!

We celebrated the good news at Longhorn Steakhouse. I was LOOKING FORWARD to this nice meal with him. A FREE one at that! We used a gift card we have saved for this making it that much more fun!

To yell... FREE ...FREE of Cancer...FREE dinner!!!

I really like the Western decor of this restaurant. Notice the saddle and the lassos and the sculpture cowboy... and of course on the back wall a LONGHORN!!

Look at the the cut out cows and the horseshoe..and the antlers on the smaller light.

Our dinner was a nice peaceful moment to reflect on the goodness of GOD towards us this day.

Thank you to those who have kept me in prayer!!!

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence
cometh my help. Psalm 120:1

Amen! Wonderful news!
I love the song "Day By Day" one of my favorites.
Glad you had a nice time of celebration with your husband.

Such good news. Thank the Lord for bringing you through. I love Day by Day, also. It was sung at my Dad's funeral. Blessings!
