Nail -scarred Hands

Well, hello there. The last time I posted I was talking about God’s fatherly love. Right after that I ran out on an errand and caught 5 minutes of a sermon about that exact issue. It took me this long to sit down and catch the whole thing, and I’m so glad I did. God definitely set it up so I would catch that as … Continue reading Nail -scarred Hands


I’m so excited, I can’t sleep until I get this out. And yes, I do consider 9:35 bedtime these days. Anyway, I just had a serious breakthrough about the willing sacrifice issue I blogged about earlier. Such a huge weight has been lifted because I finally get it. .. It’s not about cancer, it’s not about me, this is about God. Heb 11:1 says, “Now … Continue reading Breakthrough!

But in what should be the darkest, loneliest time of my life He is showing me nothing but love. Love through His people. Through people like you, who read this, stop me at stores, call me, leave or send … Continue reading Love

Chemo Treatment #2

Abigail has become afraid that I’m going to leave and never come back. I have no idea where that idea came from, but it could not be timed worse. I guess none of us should ever promise that won’t happen, because we can’t control everything. James 4:13-16 says, “Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend … Continue reading Chemo Treatment #2


We’re baaaack! We had an amazing vacation. It was much more relaxing than any we had in the past, because we focused on bonding and hanging out instead of doing a lot. My relationship with Naomi had been a little off since weaning her, and we completely got it back this weekend. I am happy to report that when my mom held her earlier today, … Continue reading Esther
