"No Chemo Today"

Lamentations 3:21-25 "But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope:  The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  The Lord is my portion, says my soul, therefore I will hope in him.  The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him." 

I am thankful that I can go to bed each night and rest so peacefully and not let the cares of this world or my health overwhelm me.  I never know what the new day will bring, but I do know that God is the One that is already sovereign over my days and I will continue to rest and trust in Him.  The verse above talks about His mercies are new every  morning, not occasionally, but every morning.  It also talks about His faithfulness and not my faithfulness.  I will continue to wait on Him and thankful it's not about me but about keeping my eyes on Him daily. 

I went in today for chemo but was unable to receive it.  All my blood work looked good except for my platelet count (clots your blood).  Last week I was able to get shots to help rebuild my white blood cell count and was able to get a blood transfusion to rebuild the blood in my body.  There is not a quick fix for platelets other than resting from chemo.  The average is 174-390 and my number was 53.  If all goes as planned, I will get both chemo infusions next week. 

I ran into a lady at Highlands Oncology today that I've been praying for almost daily.  We've only spoken once, but she's been on my heart.  I wasn't sure if it was her because the last time we saw each other, we were both bald and now we both have hair.  She has beautiful eyes so I was taking a chance it was her.  So thankful I talked to her.  She was able to tell me that she has been clear from cancer since September and goes in every 4 months for check ups.  What a praise to know she is doing so well.  She was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer last year and has 2 small children. 

God continues to encourage me daily through others.  Someone told me tonight that when she can't sleep at night, she gets on her knees and prays for me.  Wow!! I am so humbled by His grace and the love of others.  There is no doubt that is why I sleep so good at night, others are praying me through the nights and days.  I would love to thank everyone that has prayed or continues to pray for me.  God is so good and I will continue to wait and seek Him.

"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."


  1. The Lord brought you and Tony to mind today during my devotion time! You have been on my heart all week. My scripture referenced enduring a famine and how God miraculously provides in his time. May He give you peace and may you feel His loving arms around you. Blessings, Donna

  2. I often think of Psalm 84 and passing through the Valley of Baca - I love that the Bible says we pass through; we don't stay there. We go from strength to strength.
    Blest they who dwell in Zion,
    Whose joy and strength Thou art;
    Forever they will prase Thee,
    Thy ways are in their heart.
    Though tried; their tears like showers,
    Shall fill the springs of peace,
    And all the way to Zion
    Their strength shall still increase.

  3. May the showers of blessing bestow upon you...May he gives you peace
