The tiniest odds.

Odds of contracting primary sclerosing cholangitis: 1.3 per 100,000 people


Odds of developing cholangiocarcinoma: 1-2 per 100,000 people


Odds that Mayo Clinic gave Ryan to beat cancer: 0%


Odds of surviving Nebuchadnezzar's fiery furnace: 0%


Odds of 2 million Israelites successfully escaping Egypt via Red Sea: 0%


Odds of scrawny adolescent killing giant Philistine warrior: slim to none


Odds of human surviving captivity in a den of lions: 0%


Odds of man crucified on Roman cross resurrecting 2 days later: 0%


Ya know, I'm beginning to like gambling at God's table.  His dice are hot.

You are a blessing and an inspiration. Even though the road is so rough...
"...The simple truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, 'Move!' and it would move. There is nothing you wouldn't be able to tackle." - Matthew 17:20 -- with God, even THIS extraordinary healing is possible. We're praying! - Marita DeJong
