Quote from "Stepping Heavenward" by Mrs. E. Prentiss

"She says I shall now have one mouth more to fill and two feet the more to shoe, more disturbed nights, more laborious days, and less leisure or visiting, reading, music and drawing.

Well! This is one side of the story, to be sure, but I look at the other.

Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God; and the body in which dwells is worthy of all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ's name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation my other dear darlings had left me. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her tenderest cares, to her lifelong prayers! Oh, how rich I am, how truly, wondrously blest!"

Free Free Free.....Thanking Jesus I am Cancer Free

Well, the results are in.   No more cancer!!!   We are so excited and so thankful for all those who supported us on this cancer journey this past year.   I have one more surgery next Wednesday to reverse my ostomy and then regular crazy big family days will be back in order after I heal up and probably after the holidays.   The prayers, gifts of food and money, the love shown to us this past year has been a blessing to me and my family.   I wouldn't suggest getting this ill to find out how much you are loved, but it was a plus when things seemed so dark.  Meanwhile, praying whether to go back to work after the holidays part time or grow my book business to make up for lost income and growing medical bills this past year.   Would appreciate prayers for wisdom.  

Thanking Jesus today for walking this road with us and opening my eyes to the world of cancer.  Hoping to be a support to others as folks have been to me from here on out.   Part of me would like never to enter the doors of the oncologists office again, yet I hope to make it a part of our family's ministry to visit with snacks regularly.
