This is a Big Ask

Good Morning to you all. As an opening to this very Big Ask, I just want to say that I am going to continue to blog until I absolutely can’t anymore. I am going to study the Bible until I don’t need to anymore, which means at that point I would be in the presenceContinue reading “This is a Big Ask”

Ebb and Flow

I have no idea how many rounds of chemo I have endured. I’m sure I can research my medical records to find out. However, for all intents and purposes of this post, I am not going to do that. Just know that it has been over 3 years since I have been fighting with bruteContinue reading “Ebb and Flow”

Oh, the Struggle Bus

I had chemo yesterday. So naturally, I am pumped full of energy given to me by the big dose of dexamethasone (a steroid) prior to the daratammumab infusion. I have swept the entire house, wiped down everything, sprayed an aerosol labeled “Funkaway” all over, and ate a bowl of rice with Teriyaki sauce. Oh, yeah,Continue reading “Oh, the Struggle Bus”

Matthew 5:13-16

I am a wee bit late on this post. I had been battling pneumonia for the past month. I did not realize just how immunocompromised I really was until this past month. It got so bad that 6am on Sunday morning, my husband started to look throughout the house to find me because I wasContinue reading “Matthew 5:13-16”

My Chest

Today is one of those days that I would like to do over, but I know that I can’t. I am not going to dwell on that, but I do want to reflect on it. I spent most of my day in bed. It is now about 3 o’clock in the afternoon, and I amContinue reading “My Chest”

Matthew 4:18-22

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am attempting to study the first book of the New Testament of the Bible, which is called “Matthew”. I am employing the use of the Inductive Study Method to do so. I hope that it encourages a deeper study of the Bible, and my hope is thatContinue reading “Matthew 4:18-22”

Planting is Hard Work

I had no idea that gardening was such hard work. I knew that it was work. And I knew that one can get a lot of fulfillment out of it. However, I had no idea that it would kick my rear end the way it has. It has been 90 plus degrees (Fahrenheit) here forContinue reading “Planting is Hard Work”

Hitting the Wall

Today, I am hitting the wall. It is not the physical act of hitting a tangible wall. It is merely my body, in a sense, telling me to stop. I had chemo two days ago. As a precursor to chemo, I am given some “pre-meds”. This include Benedryl, Tylenol, and Prednisone. These medications help toContinue reading “Hitting the Wall”

Don’t Be Troubled By All The Noise

Recently, I have been going back to my notes section of my phone. Usually, while I am reading my Bible on my phone, I make a little note of something that God reveals to me. And usually, it’s something that I need to work on in my life. At the time of this particular note,Continue reading “Don’t Be Troubled By All The Noise”

What a day!

This day has been filled with laughs, stomps, and side-eyes. However, it has also been filled with a lot of walking. I would have complained about all of the walking before, but not anymore. I have cancer. So when my husband and I took our three youngest sons to a place that has video games,Continue reading “What a day!”
