This blog exists to declare His greatness and faithfulness in my life; in the flesh, on paper and in this cyber blog world. It is my desire to share what I have learned (and am still learning) through over-coming cancer and to offer hope and encouragement to others.

Making a Come Back
So I know it's been a while since my hand rested on the keyboard and I stared blissfully into the LED light of my laptop. What can I say? Life happens. I have been busy. Busy doing important things. You know like mothering my babies, tending a garden, chasing two growing energy laden puppies around, home-schooling my oldest boy, continuing ministry activities and occasionally cook, clean and do laundry. Not to mention, just enjoying this season of life. Reading that makes me tired! I feel a sense of conviction to write again in this blog realm. This is part of my journey; my continued healing and recovery from cancer. I face it daily. I don't like to admit it but my own mortality stares back at me in the mirror every morning. Life is fragile. Life is short. Too short. We have no idea of when it will come to an end. We just know our days are numbered and we must make to most of each day. Live like you are dying. Sounds familiar to the words of Jesus, "He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it." Matthew 10:39 I feel like I have lost it. I am literally pulling my hair out going bonkers in my mind trying to jungle it all. Yet I am finding myself in this season of life. More so than ever, I know I am doing what God wants me to do. It's my so called "job"to be a wife, a mother and a follower of His ways. Do it all for His glory because there is just simply nothing else on this planet better than that. I continue to undergo diagnostic testing to monitor my blood, have CT scans and routine conoloscopy check-ups. So far so good. God is so merciful to me. I am so very thankful. So many have asked how I am doing and what is going on with my health now that I am three and a half years from my diagnosis. I want to share. I want to scream it from the rooftops. He is good, all the time God is good.
So today I commit myself once again to faithfully log-in the hours to write. I have so many lessons I am learning and am continuing to ponder. The Lord is working in ways I never dreamed. His word is alive and active. I rejoice in the opportunity at hand to witness to those around me. Watch and see what the Lord will do. Strange things yes are on the horizon. So I'm making a come back to the blog world. I have an appointment with my laptop. I hope you will make an appointment to visit my blog and read what my heart speaks through the keys on the keyboard to the white light of the computer screen. May the Lord be glorified.
