Weekly Update and Prayer Needs

Much love and thanks to you all for your prayers, encouragement, and help towards my medical needs. Your love, prayers, and help are still needed.

Right now, Steve and I are getting chemo at the same time. We also both have chemo on Thursday. I have been having very low blood pressure. Please pray for a good normal level. Steve has had some constant vertigo problems for 2 weeks. He will have a brain MRI on Thursday. Please pray for no tumors on the brain and for the vertigo to go away. Steve has had a lot vomiting in response to chemo. He only needs 6 weeks of treatment. Please pray for his body to handle chemo better. (2X weekly)

We are so happy to have Selah and Nate here with our 9-week-old grandson – Nehemiah John. They are here to help and cheer us on. They will stay until right before Easter. One of my longest and dearest friends, Norma King, will come to visit and help from April 18th to the 22nd. We are thankful for our family and friends. We are thankful for you! Holy Hugs. We hope to see Steve’s older brother, Thomas, and his friend Cyndy on Saturday. “Mama Auntie Ruth Graham” hosted us when we first arrived and continues to welcome us to stop by sometimes for doing laundry, therapeutic baths, editing help on my third book, & her amazing tender loving care and cooking. Hope to visit with her next week. We want to thank my brother Emeory, and my brother-in-law Ernie for bring the 5th wheel to Arizona so we have housing so thankful for both of them.

We also enjoyed sharing at Plummer’s Deaf Bible Study a few weeks ago. They prayed for us.

God Bless, Steven and Vonda Hamilton

Jesus and Alexander the Great

Jesus and Alexander both died at thirty-three.
One lived and died for self, the other for you and me.
One led vast armies forth, the other walked alone.
One shed a whole world’s blood, the other shed His own.
One gained all in life to lose it all in death.
The other gave up His life to win the world’s faith.

Jesus and Alexander both died at thirty-three.
One died in Babylon, the other on Calvary.
One gained all for himself, the other Himself He gave.
One conquered every throne, the other every grave.
One made himself a god, the God made Himself less.
One lived but to blast, the other lived to bless.

Jesus and Alexander both died at thirty-three.
One lived to make men slaves, the other died to set us free.
One built a throne on blood, the other built on LOVE.
One was born of earth, the other from above.
One gained all the earth to lose both earth and heaven.
The other gave up all that all to Him be-given.

Alexander’s kingdom perished, as do all built by swords.
Christ’s kingdom is living yet, for He is Lord of Lords.

In a day when military might is being exalted, the above poem from the pen of Charles Ross Weede should help to remind us that there is a power mightier than the sword.
