Mom said to me: "I awoke this morning with the words of an old hymn on my mind:
'He hideth my soul
in the cleft of the rock
that shadows a dry, thirsty land.'"
Yes, after finding out Dad is not an acceptable candidate for a bone marrow transplant, we now have an answer. The doctors have done all they can to help cure the cancer and now in the words of the best cancer doctor in North Carolina, the Lord is "Dad's Ultimate Physician".
So, I am here to report that whether the Lord physically heals Dad or not, He is already hiding our spiritual souls in His Holiness. All is well.
Thanks to everyone of you for your continued interest and intercession for Capt. Billy and his family,
Yesterday, after the doctor left Mom, my brothers and me in the consultation room with Dad, Dad began to cry beautiful tears of triumphant testimony, declaring "I have no fear. Lately, I've got leaving on my mind. I am having a good day."
Dad even said this once we were in the car headed back to Harkers Island:
"I have nothing to pout about
and everything to shout about.
I have Eternal Life!"
Leaving UNC on Wednesday, October 1, 2014. Left to right: My youngest brother, Stephen Gray, Capt. Billy, my middle brother, Billy Joe, and Lady Melba. Oh how I love my loved ones.
