Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Had chemo treatment today. Lab results were better than they have been in a long time. Even though I have not been able to write thank you notes, I appreciate what everyone has been doing for me. Will continue with treatments the rest of the week and will be meeting with my oncologist.

Nice to hear some good news about your treatments. You have had to go through so much. I know that you know that God is with you through it all.

That's good news! Praying continually!

I Cor. 15:57-58 "But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."

Just checking in on you again and Hugs for you and your mom!

Verse for today is this:

John 11:40...........
Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?"

God's glory is ON you, Cari. His Presence is so close - because He lives within your heart! Reach out this day and touch the hem of His garment - until you can trade that 'hem' in for HIM!

I know I've given you this before - but tonight - God is asking me to remind you of it again!

Choosing JOY, Stephanie
[JESUS - the One I DELIGHT In]
