So what's up doc, was last Wednesday when I got the word of discovery. Yesterday was meet the new doc day, Dr. Rebecca Barrington, and I can honestly say, I LOVE HER! She listens, she explains, she wants, she empowers, she is passionate, she prays, she hugs, she laughs, she takes the time for each one, she cares and she is here where I live, for such a time as this in my life. Thank you God. Sept 13th starts chemo then radiation to follow. I already have our Christmas card designed.....on my head!
Faith is not that God can.....it is knowing He will.
"For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You , for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well."
Ps 139: 13-14 I feel His covering, His weaving the lining and fabric to this story, this journey, this incredible opportunity to praise Him and see His glorious works manifesting all around me. Who wouldn't want that, I mean really? More Lord, I desire more of You every day as prayer shawl wraps itself around every prayer spoken and knitted into each thread. This too will be a unique shawl that I will wear for only a while, but will not be my legacy for He has known all along.
So a trip to Barnes and Noble and I feel as though I am getting geared up for the battle. A journal to document, a dry erase to hang outside so people can leave notes if I am resting when they come by, a 2012 little calendar book that starts in June to keep appointments etc, a book about using nutrition as a weapon and lastly the only pretty cookbook I could find in the entire store with pictures and recipes for fighting cancer in the kitchen. Of course it did dawn on me......maybe I should write my own cookbook. First dinner party will be all about pink. After all the treatment plan is throwing the kitchen sink at me, thank you God I love to do dishes and there is no other place I'd rather be than in the kitchen. The spiritual nourishment I have consumed already is lacking nothing in wisdom and grace.
