    What a beautiful story! Thank you so much for sharing that with us. God is so faithful and good. I had a similar situation when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Looking back I saw all the signs of the Lord intervening so that I could come to an early diagnosis with the removal of the breast cancer. That was 17 years ago.

    Dear Annie.
    Thank You SO Much for sharing about your journey through your health issues! It really blessed us! It isn’t always easy to share our struggles… even if you have been sharing parts of your life as long as you all have, I’m sure sometimes it’s still hard. It was really interesting what you shared about Jesus and the disciples in the boat. We are currently in a time of prayer for a situation in our life and God gave us the same passage. It has been our lifeline through this time. Praying that God will continue to bless you and make you a blessing!

    I somehow found my way to this blog. I am sure I was guided here because I needed to here your words. I too am facing some health issues and you reminded me I am not alone. Thank you.

    Oh my Annie. Thank you so much for sharing this. You and Steve have been to the church I pastor 3 times and I still tell people that you two are my favorite singers and I mean it.

    I have never smoked or drank and have exercised heavily my entire life and I was diagnosed with severe A-fib a year ago with a clot on my left atrial appendage. I have been pricked, probed, one procedure after another and as of today, still wondering how they will correct this. I was running over 40 miles a week and now I cannot walk to the mail box without shortness of breath and chest pain. When the doctor told me what was happening, I could not believe it. I don’t even know why I googled tonight before I teach class–now I do. Dear Lord, thank You for leading me to this site and hear this testimony. Love you guys so much and praying for you now that I know.
