I didn’t get to hangout with mom today.
Our usually very healthy CC is very sick. We took him to the walk-in climic and after waiting over an hour, we got the diagnosis, “It’s a virus! It should be better in a few days.”
Today, I am feeling overwhelmed with my mom’s cancer and now with CC being sick things really aren’t explainable. It sure has been a wild moment-by-moment last couple of weeks.
Life really is unexplainable. Our ways are not always God’s ways.
My mom is super healthy, but now has cancer.
CC hasn’t been around anyone sick.
My mom goes to the doctor regularly. CC rarely goes to the doctor as he is rarely sick.
We moved down to Ktown three weeks ago to be closer to work. The next day we found out my mom has cancer. Now I am commuting almost daily back up north. How’s that for timing?
In my despair today, I do see hope thanks to these encouraging word.
Have faith in God, in love, in family, in friends, in the doctors, in the nurses.
Matthew 17:20 reminds me, “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”
Time to pull out my jar of mustard seeds. (Yes, I do have a jar in my cupboard!)

What does it mean, “Time to pull out the jar of mustard seeds?” And why do you even have mustard seeds?
We had a Chinese student living with us. He bought mustard seeds to make soup then I read the verse in the New Testament in Matthew that says, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” I have kept the mustard seed to help give me a visual about faith.
Wow. That is really interesting. Did he teach you how to use the mustard seeds, also? Do you eat them or just keep them?
How did you find the verse?
Our Chinese student would cook meat and soup with the mustard seeds. He liked spice.
I remember a pastor teaching about mustard seeds one time then I looked it up in my bible. I get curious about strange things! It is a verse in the New Testament of our bible (after Jesus lived and died and rose again)
Interesting. I’d never heard of mustard seeds till I read your post. I guess it makes sense if he was Chinese.
I get curious about strange things, too!
