"...fix our eyes on Jesus..."

Each day is a surprise! I never know what that day will hold. The chemo that I could not decide and did not know what to do---insurance would not approve it so the problem was solved for me! God took care of that for me! My oncologist has a new experimental for me to try---it has some bad side effects but not everyone has these, so maybe I won't. I have to try this and not just sit and let the cancer grow. I will loose my hair again, which is no big deal, since it has happened twice already. Besides, I might get curly hair again! The side effects are reversible if they get too bad or if I quit. He assured me the liver is only involved about 10% so I can handle that! I will take a daily pill and get an injection in my port once every three weeks. I pray the side effects are not so bad that I cannot handle this.

Hebrews 12:2 gives us a goal ..."Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross..."

I pray for courage, strength and endurance...and for ability to stay fairly normal in life style. Am I asking for too much?? I pray I am not asking too much! Thank you Father for all blessings.

    No dear Bev, you are not asking too much! Strength, courage, endurance, ability to stay normal in lifestyle--what human being would not be crying out to the Lord for these very blessings! And if you do not ask, why should the Lord grant them? You must ask, and we must all ask for them for you each and every day until this cancer is kicked and licked and booted out of your body! If only we all had a portion of the courage you have already exhibited for all these years of living with this insidious disease! You are my HERO!!! Loving and praying for you and John everyday,
    Barbara and Alan

    you and on the clouds in his majesty. The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” Deut. 33:26-27b

    Yahoo! Another avenue has been given to you to walk....so thankful and praying for good results and no bad side effects!
