I'm back, for the first time since surgery. I haven't been able to write since the since the surgery, but I just discovered something. I CAN WRITE.

Milton just said to say, THIS IS KRISTY.

I've longed to write.

All I can say is, God is so good. I haven't felt sad or blue. I've been happy and couraged.

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blod and righteousness.

I was in the hospital for nine days, and tothis Friday will be two weeks of being out of the hospital. This Monday, I'm supposed to start radiation. God has helped me every step of the way.

I feel so good, after some set backs.

I hope to be back. Soon.

I'm telling you, I can't, and haven't been able to, write coherently. I can't write with a pen, yet somehow, I'm writing with the computer!

Love, Kristy

God is good.

(You have just read a miracle....This is Milton. Read the last post and you'll see why. I slipped back to the computer to write this after she had left. She composed and typed all you have just read on her own.)

(Thursday Morning: I added this picture taken on our "date" on the river on Monday before her surgery.)

Kristy!!! We had no doubt that once you sat at the keyboard we'd be in for a treat. Milton's been updating us. And it's no wonder you love him so dearly, as he loves you. Okay, when do we get to read your next best seller?! WOO-HOO, GLORY TO GOD!!!
Love you, precious,

Although I haven't commented yet, I want you to know that I'm praying for you. I can't imagine not being able to write, and watching your journey puts my petty whining over a small bout of writers block into perspective. I pray with all my heart that God is bringing you back to us, healing you and filling you -- even more, if possible -- with his grace and love.

I had never visited your blog until I heard you were facing surgery with a tumor. Since surgery I have posted updates and requested prayers for you at my blog and will not stop until you are well and whole.

May God continue to bless your heart and mind as you travel through this difficult journey with your Savior. Thank you for your courage, strength, faithfulness, and bravery. We won't give up--our prayers will accomplish much as we unite and pray fervently for your recovery. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Yes! He is such a great and awesome God. I can't begin to convey the excitement and joy it was this morning to see your own words and thoughts written once again. God is good!

We will for sure be joining forces this Monday in prayer.

Thank you for your blog. Praise the Lord!

Kristy, call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not. Jeremiah 33:3

Kristy, wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strenghthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord. Psalm 27:14

For God has not given Kristy the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. II Timothy 1:7

What a beautiful early-morning post to read! God has worked mightily and He hears our prayers.
"Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4 (NLT)
In spite of what you're going through you have taken delight in the Lord :-).

You keep writing girlfriend and that novel of your will be finished!

Hugs, prayers, and praises to God!

Kristy, was so very good to talk to you last night. I can tell God is already working on the miracle we have been praying for. It is great to see you are writing again. We will continue to pray for you, especially at 3:30 on Monday.
I love you,
Your sister-in-law

Kristy, I have been reading your blog every day, waiting for news about you from Milton. I have been praying for you every day, have my church and everyone i know praying for you - not only hoping you would get better, but that you'd be able to write again too. Praise God you are getting better! I will continue praying as you enter the next phase with your radiation.

Keep us posted on your journey.

I am a friend from ACFW. We've only met once, but I have gotten to know you through this blog!

What a fabulous post you've written!! Of course, we've loved having Milton blog here, but WE MISSED YOU! Welcome back, Kristy.

Yesterday, I got invited to do something next Monday. I said, "I know I'm committed to something else, but I can't remember what it is..." Then I remembered: It's to pray for you!!! And I will.

You are beautiful through and through!

Dear Kristy, so glad to hear from you! Tell Milton I have enjoyed his blogs, too, and have even shared them with my DH. God is so good! I will post about your radiation on my blog to spread the word for concentrated prayer on Monday at 3:30. Love and prayers, rose

Kristy, it's great to see your post. Yes, God is great! He's the Great Physician. The Divine Healer. I've been praying and will continue to pray for you, especially on Monday at 3:30. As I was reading Milton's posts, I kept thinking, even in this challenging time, you guys continue to minister to others! What an awesome love you have, not only for each other, but for the rest of us. May God richly reimburse you.
Love you.

Praise God! I've been so busy praying for your overall health, I hadn't prayed specifically for your writing. But I thank God He meets us right at the point of our needs.

God is full of many miraculous deeds; and the gift of your being able to return to writing is truly awesome. I have un-able to write any comments to the blog site for a couple of days due to a keyboard which kind of sorta "bit the dust"; but now I am able to post my happiness at seeing you back at it also. May you continue on the road to healing; and with all of your family and friends praying for you, the road will be less difficult than going it alone. For there are those who have GPS systems in their cars which mean "Global Positioning Satellite," well that's fine; however the best GPS is one Jerry and I refer to as 'God Protection Service." We send our love to you and the family; now and always, Ginny

Kristy, I've shared your blog address with so many people along with my prayer group at work. I'm been printing it so Mama and Daddy can read it and I made a copy for Sis. O'Bryan too! She's still doing prayer and praise! We will continue to pray and join in on Monday at 3:30 pm. We love you, Cindy Norris
