I continue to feel extremely well each day. We have joined the gym and workout at least 4-5 days per week. My energy level and overall feeling of well being is at an all time high. I am truly high on Jesus, a complete life in Christ that renders me at peace with any and everything. This is a happy, peaceful place. I imagine this is what God intended, we have just added too much to daily life. We are always running, rushing, stressing seldom taking good quality time to simply slow down to find that peaceful place where God is…..
I woke up the other morning heavy in thought about the person who just wanted to touch the hem of His garment. I marveled at the strong will in faith that says “if I can just touch the hem”. Continue reading
I know it seems as if I’ve been missing for a while because I haven’t written any new post lately. The truth of the matter is that I needed some time, yes time to reflect. The last post “Precious Time”, I somewhat had to vent and air my feelings in order to remove the frustration.

I mentioned my friend Kristi in my last post whom I’ve never met and unfortunately will never meet in this life. Reason being, is that Kristi passed away from ovarian cancer in 2011. Her battle began in 2006 and she fought hard all the way to the end. I have come to know of her husband, Brian and their 3 kids Ashley, Nathan, and Emily. This pass April 17th would have been their 20th wedding anniversary. So you may be wondering how I feel as though I know them and how is it that I call her my friend. Well, since starting this blog I have searched the web for other people writing about their experience. I did this to be sure that I am sharing good information and for a source of inspiration for myself. Kristi and Brian have inspired me beyond believe. Even though they chose conventional treatment, their commitment to God, each other, their family and friends is so uplifting. Their blog is titled: Kristi & Brian: Living! with Cancer. I started reading it from the last post which is a video of the funeral service and how Brian and the kids are managing without Kristi, but then decided to start from the beginning. I read it every chance I have an extra moment. It is filled with ups and downs which Brian describes as a pendulum but through it all it’s filled with praising God. And yes, she is gone but I know one day we’ll meet her in heaven. She is now free from the pain and suffering caused by the disease and subsequent treatment. Continue reading
