I want to be – strongly rooted in my faith – like a tree firmly planted by streams of water. ...that takes time and seasons and even the storms of life as evidenced through the scars of life. Growth often seems slow but it is happening as long as we pursue it.

Update on the second chemotherapy. Now half way through.
Thursday, June 19th was the second chemotherapy. I believe the anxiety got to me as I was unable to fall asleep until 2:45 a.m. that very morning. I awoke at 6:30 a.m. to begin preparation for the event. First, the blood d...
