Here is a link to the MD Anderson "trailer" for my presentation last September there at their Spine and Brain Tumor Conference.
If you are interested in seeing the entire 15 minute presentation, it is located here, on MD Anderson's site:
My eternal and profund thanks to so many whose faith and prayer strengthened and helped me through the strength and power of our Savior Jesus Christ and His healing.
So great were the blessings to us, that we could not contain them. I was gone from work for almost seven months, but because of a leave-share program we have there, enough leave was donated to me that I never missed a day of pay, or a day of service. More than enough was donated. I was never on short or full term disability. The rehab Dr. did so good that I was able to return to work immediately upon returning when most people take a year off. I am humbled beyond words.
This forum and so many others, friends, relatives, neighbors, members of my church, and even absolute strangers assisted and helped and gave hope and strength...and ultimately were a part of God in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ's healing balm for me and my family for their purposes.
I confess their hand in it...and I know one reason was for me to be able to witness their name to all I can. I so witness now.
And I continue to pray and work for the restoration of our fundamental moral and republican principles in this nation. May we all have part in that, in which ever way the Lord drects us this fall and in the future.
Bro, you are truly a living miracle and an inspiration! You have easily surpassed my most optimistic expectations. I may have not been posting on the forum much of late, but my prayers for your healing have never ceased. And I must say, prayers answered!
May God continue to guide you, heal you and bless you richly.
That is amazing Jeff!
Thank God for good doctors, “lag bolts” and MD Anderson (where one of my family members was also given wonderful care and a longer life - as have so many been given).
Thank you for sending this out.
I am at a loss for words, Jeff, except to say you are still in my prayers and will always be.
Praise the Lord for the great news.
Praise the Lord for the great news.
It makes my heart glad to see how well you are doing. Thanks for the ping.
Thank you my dear FRiend, for your faith, prayers, and encouragement throughout. All, from so many sources, have been more helpful than I can desribe.
God bless you and yours, and prayers up for our Constitutional Republic and God’s help and mercy in turning things around in November.
You have FRemail.
Amen to every bit of that CW. God has been very kind to me and I am grateful beyond words.
I give all credit and honor to Him and His Son...and thank so many dear friends, relatives, and all those who exercised their faith and prayed on my behalf. it was a strength that helped me through some very difficult days.
MAy He return the blessing ten fold to all of those who have showed such kindness and mercy to us.
Thank each of you.
It has been a humbling, difficult...but also a very enriching and faith prmoting experience. I give all honor and credit to God in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ.
I thank all who have exercised their faith, prayed for, and given me and my family such encouragement.
May your kindness and mercy be blessed and may our Father in Heaven bless each of you and your own for you compassion.
All in in His hands and under His careful watch eye.
I pray our republic can be blessed to experience a dramatic turnaround, one that will be remembered and talked about for decades, this November.
II Chron 7:14
You are welcome Grammy...and thank you for your faith and prayers.
God in Heaven is aware of each of us and cares more than we can comprehend. His will be done...and it is always the best thing that could happen, even when we view it as difficult.
God’s speed to you and yours.
Very wise and accurate words.
"...As we have said before, the world is only relatively intelligible because it is absolutely unintelligible. In other words, it is only because the world is created that we can understand it at all.
"But for the same reason, we can never completely understand it, since we can never be the Creator. Therefore, in the ultimate sense, the cosmos too pours out its own inexhaustible stream of truth and beauty.
"In Salt of the Earth, Ratzinger is asked how many ways there are to God. His answer may surprise you: "As many as there are people."
"For otherwise we wouldn't be persons, nor could God be One. ..."
"But try telling some of the folks on this thread about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to which I belong, that. IMHO, it's a sad thing to see on FR."
It is a sad thing, I agree. Insufferable, small-minded religious bigots will always be around no matter where one goes, because that's where THEY'RE at, at a particular time in their lives. Unfortunately, some of them will choose to remain invincibly ignorant religious bigots their whole lives. Their teachers and their god are just as shrunken and shriveled as they have freely chosen to remain, themselves.
"....he never managed to overcome his awe over the very existence of persons, from which proceeds his belief in their intrinsic dignity, nobility, and potential greatness.
"Absent this prior ground of meta-cosmic personhood, there can be no secure and inviolable ontological basis for a whole range of truths we know to be true, but could never "prove" with mere logic, e.g., the sanctity and infinite worth of the individual, the intrinsic right to religious freedom, and the a priori illegitimacy of any state that intrudes upon man's claims to truth, dignity, and justice. ...
"...not everyone is built the same way, and some of us want to place our invisible hand on the open wound at the center of our intellect."
Prayers are powerful. Gd bless and many happy, healthy years ahead!
Yay! Happy for you, pal .................................................... FRegards
Wonderful, Jeff! Thank you for sharing this news!
What a wonderful testimony to God’s healing powers, and your faith. My goodness, Jeff Head, you have had an amazing and blessed healing! PTL!
Thank you so much for keeping me updated, JH2.
You are an amazing person yourself, and a wonderful FRiend and friend. ;o)
