I’ve been treasuring something in my heart, I guess the way Mary did when Jesus delighted and surprised her–before He proved Himself to the world. It’s a doozy to me, but part of that is the timeliness of the revelation amongst the general struggles I’ve had. So, over the past few years my faith peaked, and has since faltered a bit. The peak lasted between … Continue reading Faith for Glory
I want to pass on a great offer that Beth Moore put out recently. I think it ends January 10. She’s offering 4 free E-books. If you haven’t read her stuff it’s really great. You just have to really put your heart into reading it and not just glance at it. I downloaded them onto my regular computer and they opened without any difficulty or … Continue reading 21 Day Challenge
I discovered an awesome show called “Extreme Weight Loss”. I watch it with tears in my eyes throughout. In the last episode I saw (season 3, episode 3) there were many echoes of statements that all people I know who have been blessed with a miracle make. The overweight man miraculously survived a horrendous car accident. At the hospital, the doctors were stunned and repeated, … Continue reading Wasted Life
Got the PET scan results today…no cancer! It’s been at least a year since I had any evidence at all of cancer. I knew I was healed of the life-taking disease last Groundhog day (who knew that was a real holiday?!), but there was still a bit of minor cancer in my original tumor. The scan I had around last Memorial day though showed no … Continue reading Tests
Alright, here’s the whole schbeel on radiation. I’ll go blow by blow so people have an idea what to expect for this type of treatment: I go every business day, I think 33 times total, for 6.5 weeks. It takes exactly 20 minutes, but there can be time spent waiting around. It’s at the same time every single day, 11:40 am. That wasn’t my choice but is … Continue reading Radiation et al.
I already posted today with content stuff, but a lot of people have been asking about random details of what I’m going through. So this should answer it. Please don’t worry about bombarding me with questions either, I’m happy to share any details. My Diet:I’m followig the anti-cancer diet to the best of my ability. It is difficult for me as it’s very time-consuming and … Continue reading Diet and Random Answers
I was in a Bible study this morning and the speaker mentioned 2 Thessalonians 3-4, “We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing. Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials … Continue reading Tomorrow!
Chemo treatment #4. The best I expected was to go in quickly, hear my lump is very small and get a quick dose of the “red devil juice” (they call it that, I don’t). I was already excited because after this I have just 12 weeks of a gentler drug.God had better plans for me today. I asked Dr. Rassam about his recommendation for my … Continue reading BEST DAY SO FAR
Our family celebrates Passover the way Jesus did, and there are always eye openers about how certain components of it were fulfilled by Him. Parts of it get boring and feel ritualistic because I’m a sinner with a short attention span. However, throughout this cancer process (I really need a good word for it!) I have often prayed “Dayenu” and thought of that part of … Continue reading Dayenu–Treatment 3
Matthew 7:11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! Last night Naomi was sleeping in my arms while I was sad. I couldn’t wipe the tears from my eyes for fear of waking her, so I let them fall off … Continue reading God the Father
