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 mind. One of the things I was concerned about as I underwent chemotherapy was a phenomenon known as chemo-brain. Many people who have had chemotherapy treatments have reported a...
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
Published
I felt the butterflies in my stomach fluttering back and forth wildly. Ugh...I felt like I was going to be sick. This was going to be tougher than I thought. Tonight was our monthly Chick Night at church. I'd previously laid my plans. This was our...
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...
He Is The God Of Peace!
Published
Last Monday, I wrote a blog about God being the Darkness-Slayer. I shared about darkness which had settled down around me and threatened me late Saturday evening and into early Sunday morning. I wrote about how God had dispelled the darkness with one...
God Is The Darkness Slayer!
Published
The dark cloud seemed to have swept in with the cold front which moved in early Saturday evening. Temperatures plummeted into the 40's as the rain fell intermittently. My husband and I were headed to a small town where a friend of ours was playing...
Old Habits Die Hard So Pay Attention!
Published
Rats! I'd done it again. You'd think after five and a half months I would have learned by now. I guess I'm a slow learner or perhaps old habits do indeed die hard. While those who know me might disagree, I prefer to think the latter is...
Love Is Not Enough
Published
The moment I typed this title, I wanted to cry out yes it is! We so desperately want love to be enough to fix everything and everybody. If we would just love enough broken hearts would be mended. Horrible baggage people have carried all of their lives...
I Don't Have To, I Want To
Published
Last night my school had their annual ice cream social. On the Thursday before school starts, students and their families are invited to come and meet their new teachers. This year about 55% of the families from my class showed up. That's a better...
Heigh-Ho Heigh-Ho It's Off To Work I Go!
Published
I went on medical leave from teaching on February 29. When I left, I did not know when or if I would be returning. I was hopeful as the biopsy of my sentinel lymph nodes had shown no cancer but who knew what would show up after I finished treatment?...
Dare To Be Vulnerable
Published
No one likes to be vulnerable. When we are vulnerable we put ourselves at risk to be hurt and even destroyed. It feels much safer to put a mask on, build a wall around ourselves and securely bar the door after attaching a large sign which reads...
Reflecting On Where You've Been
Published
As Christians, I believe it is very important for us to take time to reflect back to where we have been. I'm not talking about trying to live in the past. I don't believe that is ever a good thing. Today is the day in which we are living....
I'm Finished With Cancer Treatment
Published
I'm finished. After eight and a half months which includes the initial finding of my tumor as well as treatment, I'm finished. It has been a very long road. At least it seemed that way to me. The flurry of doctor appointments, tests,...
The Path God Has Chosen For Us
Published
Christ Followers often talk about God's direction. We love to quote verses such as Proverbs 3:5-6 Subconsciously we get an image of a lovely flower-lined path with birds singing. We envision ourselves strolling down this perfect path in perfect...
I Am Suspended By Jesus
Published
Today I learned that I woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer about a year before me went into hospice. While her initial tumor was larger than mine, like me she did not have any lymph node involvement. She went through a similar treatment. Things...
Do We Bear The Evidence Of God's Redemption?
Published
Do I bear the evidence of God's redemption? This thought struck me with full force this morning. I had just been treating a radiation burn with Aquaphor and was thinking about how I would always bear the evidence of the removal of cancer as long...
To Judge Or Not To Judge
Published
This past winter I read "The Case For The Real Jesus" by Lee Strobel. While doing an interview, he asked about this scripture. The man he was interviewing made the statement that this verse had become the new John 3:16 in today's...
