Walking Beside The Critically Ill
Published
I first came face to face with critical illness when I was 14 years old. I will never forget that day. It was fall and I was a sophomore in high school. I had just come home from school when my dad came through the front door. He asked me to sit down....
Thank You For Being A Friend
Published
I got a message today from a CB friend. The guilty party knows who she is! She was a bit concerned about me and just wanted to check-in with me. The reality is God knew I needed to hear from her. I was going through a "bump" in the road at...
Taking The Time To Learn To Love People

One of the ahem...."planks" that falls down and blocks my...
Am I Receiving Or Rejecting God's Extended Hands?
Published
My oldest and dearest friend called me up earlier this week. We go way back to high school and now we once again live in the same community. She was heartbroken. She and her husband are a part of a small Bible study group within their church. One of...
He's My Knight In Shining Armor!
Published
Within every woman is a girl who's heart beats faster at the thought of a "knight in shining armor" coming to her rescue. Oh, there are those women who pretend they don't care. There are even those women who will completely deny ever...
Learning A New Way To Live
Published
Last August, just about the time I thought "normal" might be within my grasp, I learned I had a second chronic illness triggered by the treatment of the first one; diabetes. Great. Two chronic illnesses diagnosed eight months apart. This...
Gifts Can Come In Strange Packages But They're Still A Gift
Published
All the blogs/comments about the weather got me to thinking about winter. For all of my complaining about the recent sub-zero stretch up here in Minnesota, I fully realize the value of winter. Yes, it can be a very dark and dismal time. It's cold,...
A January Thaw And A Promise
Published
I've been too cold to do much of anything lately. As I sit here typing this, the outside temperature is -29. Fortunately the winds are calm right now so it actually feels warmer than what it is. When you've been at these temperatures for...
A Burnt Pot Of Beef Stew--Just A Little Reminder Of God's Provision
Published
This is one of those little stories I like to file away in my brain for future reference. I know I'll need it sometime in the future. Perhaps you will too. Earlier today, I made a pot roast with lots of potatoes, carrots and onions of course. It...
Change Before You Have To

Our current sermon series at church is called "Change Before You...
Running The Race With Patience
Published
I'm switching phone service next week and discovered this picture on my phone. It's one of the few pictures I allowed taken during chemo. This was taken on Mother's Day, 2008 at the Race For The Cure event which took place at the Mall of...
God Says You Are Worth It
Published
I was re-reading the account of the Flood today. Whenever I read about the flood, I get this mental image in my mind. I imagine water covering the earth as it shakes and trembles under earthquakes and eruptions far greater than we could ever imagine...
The Power Of Human Touch For The Giver As Well As The Receiver
Published
In one of my recent blogs, The Power Of The Human Touch, I wrote about the impact touch has on an individual who is suffering. Granted, you do need to take care in doing this, especially if you don't have much of a relationship with the individual...
I Need To Act Like A Princess
Published
It seems like grace versus works is an endless topic of debate in the...
My New Little Cousin--Thanks for your prayers!
Published
Yesterday I posted a prayer request in regards to my cousin Tara who was being airlifted in order to undergo an emergency c-section. She and her husband had been on their way back home after spending time with her family in Arizona when she suddenly...
The Power Of Human Touch
Published
A comment made on one of my blogs regarding Jesus touching and reaching out to lepers caused me to recall how important human touch is to me, especially when I was going through treatment. Many times we fail to reach out to those who are critically or...
When You Or Someone You Love Faces Chronic Illness...
Published
2008 was an interesting year for me. I was diagnosed with two chronic and potentially fatal diseases; breast cancer and diabetes. While there is no actual cure for these two diseases, fortunately for me there are treatment options. Ironically, the...
Some Personal Reflections On 2008
Published
As 2008 comes to a close, I cannot help but reflect upon this past year in a way which I have never done so before. If you've read and followed any of my blogs this past year, you know that I was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2007. Due...
A New Year's Resolution For 2009 And Forever!
Published
There have been several blogs about new year's resolutions. I've mentioned in at least one of them that I don't do new year's resolutions as I'm a rather impulsive ahemmmm....I mean flexible person. People like me do not generally...
Time To Prune...snip, snip, snip
Published
Snip, snip, snip...I couldn't believe I was sitting in a chair and actually allowing someone to do this to my hair. On Thursday, March 13, 2008, the day before my second chemo treatment, my hair started to fall out. I'd already laid my plans....
You Have To Walk Like A Penguin
Published
I stepped out the door of my school a couple of weeks ago with a line of second graders behind me. Oh-oh. The sidewalk in front of us was sheer ice. Temperatures had plummeted and the chemicals poured on the ice earlier in the day had not done their...
The Lord Thunders With Loud Thunder!
Published
Today my pastor preached a message which has burned in my heart all day. It was taken from the seventh chapter of 1 Samuel. The preceding chapters tell the story of how Israel "lost" Ark of the Covenant. The people were not serving God and...
Don't Forget To Use Your Meter!
Published
Earlier this year I wrote a blog called Cancer-An Object Lesson On Sin. Prior to chemotherapy infusions, patients are given large dosages of steroids via IV. The downside of all of this is blood sugar rises dramatically. If a person has a...
Receiving And Responding To The Father's Love
Published
A few weeks ago, my mom had some home movies from 1965-1967 transferred onto a DVD. She gave me a copy as a Christmas gift. I was so excited! The last time I saw these was before my dad got cancer so it was pre-1975. Of course, the quality was not the...
God Does Not Intend For Us To Run Alone
Published
God loves relationships! God wants us to be in relationship with Him. That's a given. However, He also wants us to be in relationship with one another. We have a tendency to brush that aside sometimes depending on our mood. Far too many Christians...
