Living In God's Place For The Moment
Published
It is so easy to look at the lives of others and think, "If only I were living where they are." Common sense tells us the grass only appears greener on the other side of the fence but we're actually pretty short-sighted when it comes to...
You Are Surrounded By God And Sin Survivors
Published
Mother's Day-May 11, 2008 I'd had chemo less than 48 hours before. I knew that by late afternoon or into the early evening, I'd be pretty much confined to bed and writhing with phantom nerve pain. Nevertheless, I was on a mission and I was...
A Time Of Connection--Woman To Woman
Published
I went to Women of Faith this weekend and it was awesome! I try to go every year and if you are ever able to attend a WOF conference, I strongly encourage you to do so. This is one of the things I do to get filled up for the upcoming year. There is...
God Understands All Of Our Fears
Published
I shifted uncomfortably in my chair and dropped my gaze. My oncologist waited patiently. I played with my fingers for a moment and then sighed. I looked up. He still didn't say a word. He just watched me carefully. I had a feeling he knew exactly...
It's Not Because I Said So, It's Because God Said So
Published
It's a scenario I've seen over and over again. Parents faithfully take their children to church. Their children are involved in every activity the church has to offer. They go on mission trips. They talk about God. They appear to be the...
Through The Eyes Of A Child
Published
We crammed onto a school bus last Wednesday. There were 54 seven and eight year olds and 15 adults. Our bus was packed with two second grade classes. The other two classes would be going the next day. It had been cold and rainy the day before but...
Our Hope Must Be Built On Christ
Published
Over the past few days, an old hymn has been going around and around in my head. The Solid Rock Words by Edward Mote, Lyrics by William B. Bradbury 1. My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus' blood and righteousness; I dare not trust the...
The Lord God Our Healer!
Published
A few years ago, a cousin who is about my age suffered a stroke around Christmastime. We were all stunned as she was still in her late 30's at the time. Imagine our shock and then fear as she suffered another stroke and then another one. This kept...
Living By Faith In Perilous Times
Published
5 And the apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith." 6 So the Lord said, "If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,' and it would obey you....
Who Are You Listening To?
Published
My husband and I have been having some serious talks with our son lately. He's been dating a young woman for more than a year now and while they're not engaged, the subject of marriage has been coming up. Both my son and his girlfriend have...
Let Us Never Deny Christ!
Published
My pastor preached a thought provoking message this morning about denying Christ. The Bible clearly warns us against doing this. Usually, when we think about denying Christ we may envision someone pointing a gun at us and telling us to deny Christ or...
Bringing Joy To The Father's Heart
Published
They were waiting at the door when I arrived at school early on Friday morning. I could see them waiting by the classroom door as I made my way down the hall. It was a father, son and the father's brother. The child waved wildly as he caught sight...
Who Or What Is Your Anchor?
Published
Earlier today as I was listening to the news which was by no means very good, an old hymn I grew up with flashed through my mind. The hymn is entitled I've Anchored In Jesus It was written by Lewis E. Jones in 1901. I've Anchored In Jesus...
Will The Real You Please Stand Up?
Published
I went top-less today at school. Now before you get the wrong idea, I have to let you know that is chemo-survivor slang for going out in public without a covering on your head such as a wig, scarf or my personal favorite which is a hat. While this is...
God Can Fix My Mistakes!
Published
I was caught completely off guard last week. Last winter, prior to taking medical leave for chemotherapy treatment, a co-worker constantly made what I felt were rude, insensitive remarks. I tried to politely let her know I did not appreciate the...
A Cheap Date Can Be Priceless
Published
My husband and I had been planning this for about a month. The weather was overcast rather than partly cloudy as promised and the temperature hovered around 65 degrees instead of 72 but that did not deter us from our plans. It's apple time in...
Exercise Your Mind As Well As Your Body
Published
As a teacher, I am well aware of the importance of exercising your...
Never Leave Your Partner Behind
Published
Last night my husband and I went to the opening of Fireproof. While it was sold out several weeks ago at the theater near our town, we were fortunate in that it was also playing at other theaters in the area and we were able to get tickets. Never...
You Make Me Want To Be Brave

I felt the butterflies in my stomach fluttering back and forth wildly....
God Is The God Of Hope!
Published
In Greek mythology, there is a story told of how Pandora, the first woman, opens a box which scatters evil and pestilence all over the earth. Terrified and heart-broken, she notices one more thing in the box. It's name was Hope. Whenever I hear...
I Still Have My Fingernails!
Published
I know, I know. My title is sort of strange for a blog which is about a testimony. You may be wondering what on earth I'm talking about. You may think chemo pushed me completely over the edge. You may even be thinking "Ewwww." While the...
The Real Story Of The Angel Food Cake
Published
Recently, I've been reading some discussions, blogs and comments in regards to lying and deception. As I read them, I thought about an incident which happened to me when I was six or seven years old. One day, as I was poking around in the...
Here's To Life, A Gift From God!
Published
This afternoon my husband and I went to see a film called Dear Talula. The film was sponsored by Temple Israel and opened to the public. I'd heard about it at one of my cancer support group meetings. It is about a Jewish woman who learned she had...
God Honors And Blesses Sacrifice
Published
Nearly two years ago, my church launched a program called Kingdom Builders. The focus is to build God's Kingdom by being good stewards of what he has given us and blessing those in need. Funds raised have been used for both capital church projects...
I Want To Live Well
Published
Over the past nine months, I've been pondering what it means to live well. Last December, when faced with my own mortality, I looked back on my life and asked a common question people ask themselves when they don't know how long they might...
