Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow!!

My dad just called with GREAT news from my mom's scan reports this morning! Their oncologist told them that the MRI showed no cancer in her brain, and the CT scan showed that the size of her cancer tumors have actually been REDUCED since the last scans, which were taken after she had completed chemo. Her doctor was so very pleased with her status, that he told her she now doesn't even have to come back for another set of scans for two months! 

I am overflowing with a thankful heart to our gracious God, and I can't think of a better gift that He could have given us for the holidays. Thank you, LORD!
