I Lack Nothing

Category: All Posts,Prayers,Stories of Life – Rose – 9:23 pm

Today Rich and I went to see my cardiologist to get the results from my 2month post-op Dr Warth

echocardiogram. I like my doctor so much. He had big smiles as he read the results and heard how I have been doing. He was so happy! My heart was at 10-15% when he first met me. It moved to 20% after I was in the hospital and they took 6 pounds of fluids off my chest cavity. When I left the hospital and with every follow up appointment he would tell me my heart was as good as it was going to get. Today, the echo showed my heart at 25-30%. This is YUGE!!!!!! We asked him again if he thought this would happen and he shook his head and said, “NO.”

I absolutely, without a doubt believe that the prayers of the people have carried me through and my heart is healing. Thank you thank you! Thank you for all the prayers, good wishes, good thoughts, love and support.

Last week was the Northwest Vineyard Regional Conference. I had no idea how I would do attending the conference. I definitely had to have good boundaries and rest for several hours in between meetings. My body would reboot and I was okay. I received so much prayer and love with all my NW Vineyard tribe! I loved the conference. Eric, Julia, Lance, Le Que and Robin were the best. Everyone was amazing! The host church, Portland Vineyard, the NW Leadership Team, all of the Worship Leaders and team, the amazing kid’s leads and volunteers, all the volunteers, Darlene and Nicki! Thank you to everyone at the conference. Thank you Vineyard USA for all of your support, love and encouragement!

I thank God for all the goodness in my life. I am deeply loved and cared for. “I lack nothing.” Ps 23

  1. Rose, this is such good, good news– and as it warms your heart and your family’s, it does for all of us too– we take encouragement from the good things the Lord is doing; it buoys our faith as well– it has been a trial on our faith and we get lifted as you improve– we are all in the trenches together and on the housetops together– that is Community. Thanks for keeping us informed–
