Behold, I will create a new heavens and a new earth..."

The former things will not be remembered....I will... take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and crying will be heard no more..." Isaiah 65:17, 19

How wonderful to never weep or be sad every again! New things are so special, all crisp and fresh, unused, nearly like opening a Christmas present, something special just for you! God will give us a new place to live and it will be like opening a gift from Him, and we will be healthy and whole again. That is what appeals to me!

At the risk of being redundant, tomorrow is radiation #8, a third of the way through. Can I do another 17? I am not sure. I am so tired, no appetite, and I know I must eat. Food just sticks in my throat and turns my stomach. I will see the radiation doctor tomorrow and see what he thinks about my progress. I KNOW the radiation is working, but the price I am paying??? Can I hold out long enough to get through it?

After tomorrow, I get three days off, Christmas time and being with family, my sister and her family Saturday, our family Saturday and Sunday, then Monday a day off. I made cookies tonight, tried to, anyway. My idea of cookies is to mix it up and put spoon fulls on a pan, nothing fancy. I tried to make some cut out and "ice" them. Let's just say, no magazine would want me for its' cover! But I wanted to take something to my nurses, who are so special. It is the effort that counts?
Merry Christmas!
