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?

God Hears Our Every Cry

Published
Each summer I am faced with a challenge. I have to take 14-22 elementary school-aged children who probably don't know each other and get them to work like a well-oiled machine. I have to do this in less than a week. At the end of the week they...
You Have To Follow The Plans

I think it goes like this." My head shot up at these words and I quickly approached the speaker who was adding some K'NeX pieces to the roller coaster section they were working on. There were no K'NeXprints (blueprints) in sight. Before I...
A 2:00 A.M. Surprise

They say that diamonds are a girl's best friend but that's not true in my case. When I was growing up, the denomination to which my family belonged frowned upon the wearing of jewelry. This was apparently quite a trial for many women but I...
False Security

The last week of June, I sat in a room at the radiation treatment center in a major hospital where I'd be doing the final phase of my breast cancer treatment. It had been a long road since my diagnosis back in December 2007 and it would be another...
The Lord God Our Provider

Standing On God's Promises

For 400 years, the descendants of Israel (Jacob) had lived in Egypt. At first, they were treated as honored guests but with the passage of time, things changed. Eventually, they lost the favored status they'd held and were reduced to the status of...
Ignorance Is Bliss...Or Is It?
Published
This morning I was nervously sitting in a little waiting room with four other women. The fact that I was draped in a gown and had abandoned my head gear did not make me feel more comfortable. Six months had passed since the mammogram which had found...
Bless Someone Today!
Published
While I was undergoing chemo, the wonderful sisters in one of my small groups brought meals to our home for the five days following treatments. They did this every two weeks from February until June. It was a tremendous blessing for us in more ways...
Oh Be Careful Little Fingers What You Say

When I was a very young child, I learned a little song in Sunday School. Oh be careful little eyes what you see, Oh be careful little eyes what you see, For the Father up above is looking down in love, So be careful little eyes what you see. Oh be...
Checking Your Growth

I've developed a new obsession over the past couple of weeks. I stare intently into a mirror at least a couple of times a day looking for sprouts. As the hairs that did not fall out are getting a bit longer, I am continuously on the lookout for...
Walk Before The Lord In The Land Of The Living!

I went to see a radiation oncologist today and heard the words I've been waiting to hear without my prompting them. As she flipped through my chart she said "I see you are now cancer-free." Yes, I'd been told there was no lymph node...

I want to thank everyone for the prayers which have gone up on my behalf. Now that I am a week past my last chemo treatment, I really feel like I have finally come to the end of that road. The side-effects from my last treatment have subsided. Things...
Only God Can Have Me!

A common saying amongst cancer survivors is I have cancer but cancer does not have me! I believe this can apply to so many things in our lives. You may not have cancer. You may have other things you grapple with in life. Perhaps you have a chronic...
