Thursday 10-8-09 Sanoviv

OK...I am going to start todays post with an experiential gift Shelly received yesterday during her reflexology treatment.   The therapist, Pedro, who was working with her asked if she would like to hear some of the songs he had written while he worked on her feet.  Shelly, who loves music, was thrilled to do so.  He put a headset on her and started a CD.  Shell listened to beautiful worship music during her entire treatment.  After she was done, he asked if he would like to hear a song he wrote for her.  When she said yes, he pulled out a 12 string guitar and sang the most beautiful worship song.  It brought Shelly to tears...what a gift during this time to have reminders of who He is.

She learned that a large portion of the staff here are followers of Christ and gather every morning before work to pray for the guests.   :-)  No wonder we feel such peace here.

It's been a busy day for Shelly already.  She is finishing a massage right now and will head to the Quiet Room for an Ondamed treatment (some kind of vibrational deal - I have to Google it to learn more).  After lunch she will head to the Hyperbaric Chamber.  The hyperbaric wears her out. She has time for a nap following.

The pathology reports are not in yet...we are praying they come in this afternoon.  Of course, as soon as I know anything I will update the blog.  :-)  I am honored to keep the communication lines open when she is so far away from those she loves.

Closing thought from our devotion this morning.... 
Jer. 31:3 “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself."

The question we posed to ourselves considering the truth of this is "What would we do differently if we truly believed we were loved unconditionally? or How would we behave if we truly believed that we are unconditionally accepted?"  We had a great discussion and came to some interesting conclusions.  I encourage you to think about it too!

Ciao for now!
