Even Now


This is a story about the audio file I've posted called, "Even Now by Gustavo."

Mom was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer on March 13, 2008, a date I will always remember. Those were dark days, and we survived on prayer. After chemo and radiation treatments, the cancer is in remission. In the midst of the fear and dread, we discovered a sermon by C.H. Spurgeon, "Even Now," based on John 11:22. This is during the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the tomb. Martha, the sister of Lazarus, goes to meet Jesus when he finally arrives after her brother has been dead for days. Still, Martha can tell Jesus, "even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you." We all know what happened next; at the command of Jesus, Lazarus rose from the dead.

Even Now by Gustavo

I wrote the lyrics for this song when my mother was receiving treatments for inoperable Stage3A lung cancer last year. My friend Gustavo composed the music and performed the song for a music video another friend filmed and edited. More about this song is in my story called "Even Now." I pray God will bless you somehow through our song.

Here are the lyrics to the song:

Even Now

Loneliness clings to your heart
In the black night of your soul,
Death seems to surround you
Now, look to the savior
He comes to you, even now

Even now, when you sigh and cry
Even now, when your hope is gone

These icicles lined almost the entire aqueduct in this portion of the California Truckee river.

Just trying to stay upright, ha ha ha! :-) My husband took this photo of me while I was coming down the slope this past Saturday.

"Take a deep breath."
"Blow it out."
"Take a deep breath and hold it."
"You can breathe"

[I took this picture by opening the exposure for a long time and passing a lazer pointer over my semi-willing co-worker's face in a dark room.]
