"O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me." Ps. 30:2 KJV

While I was reading my Bible I read this verse and decided it was my verse for the next two weeks. Last Thursday I went to MD Anderson for my three month check up and my "Great Physician" did it again. My CA125 was 10.6, and now I am on a every four month check. I am so thankful to my Lord.

I also wanted to share a picture of Ovarian Cancer survivors. Was taken at the "Sprint for Life Walk" May 7, 2011. What a day tha was!!!

New verse for the next 2 weeks:

"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10 KJV

It's been a rough couple of weeks.  When I posted my verse for May 15th I realized I already had that verse in March.  God must not be finished with that verse in my life!!!  My family and friends went on a week-long camping trip to South Dakota.  We had fun, it was relaxing, it was VERY windy and rained most of the time.  We did get to see Mt. Rushmore and we drove through Bear Country USA.  AMAZING!!!  There wasn't perfect peace, but we had peace in the midst of the storms.  Refreshing, rejuvenating, restoring, relaxing!!!

I got to finish a book called The Thorn by Beverly Lewis.  It's centered around the Amish life, faith, family, love. There was a quote in the book that stuck out and grabbed me.

"God's mercy holds us up when we reach the end of our own strength."

What a great thought!!  Grasp it, learn it, live it, share it!!  My verse for the next two weeks is this:

Psalm 105:4 (KJV)
"Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore."

May 15th

My verse for the next two weeks is:

"For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper."

Ps. 72:12 KJV

Who isn't needy and who doesn't need help? I know I am and I thank the Lord for hearing me when I cry out to him and then helping me. How can people live in this world without the Lord?

Last Saturday my sister and niece were here to walk with me in the Sprint for Life 5K. Wow, what an experience that was and a joy to see and talk with other survivors. I will be posting pictures and a update to my blog this next week.

Today Scott and I got to go into a couple's home that have gotten saved in the last couple of weeks and start disciplining them. They are so eager to learn and they too have great needs and want the Lord's help. Reach out and help others who are in need. The Lord will help us so we can help others.

May 1st

Where has the time gone? May already...really!!!! I am very excited about this next weekend. I get to see Aunt Debbie and my mom. We are doing the Sprint For Life 5K at MD Anderson. Walking with my hero!!!! God is so good...pray we get to talk with other survivors and family members about THE GREAT PHYSICIAN....

So, my memory verse for the next few weeks is from 2 Peter 3:9 (The Message)
"God isn't late with His promise as some measure lateness. He is restraining Himself on account of you, holding back the End because He doesn't want anyone lost. He's giving everyone space and time to change."

April 15, 2011

Wow, how time flies when you are soooooooooooo busy!!! It seems like I just posted a verse. I must confess to you ladies that I am having a hard time memorizing, but it is not going to stop me from finding a new verse and at least reading it everyday. I write my verses in a notebook so I know where they are. I know that my memory is not the same since I have taken chemo. Sometimes the simplest thing I know I should know, I can't remember. Oh, well, I am alive and well , so I will continue to TRY to hide God's word in my heart.

So for those of you who say, I can't memorize, you can at least pick some verses and read them everyday. The Lord can help do the rest. It is amazing how he brings to mind the verses you need at just the right time. So come on and join us.

"Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts.

And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."

Ps. 139:23-24 KJV

Please be in prayer for the "Sprint for Life Walk" on May 7 for Ovarian Cancer. I wrote a tract and we will be handing them out, we are praying for souls to be saved. Also, pray for my sister, Paula and my niece, Pam for safety as they travel to come here to walk with me.

I was reading a story about April 1st...An Atheist was suing the state of  Florida because the Christians have all these Holy Days they celebrate, but he didn't have one and wanted one.  The judge declared, "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good." Psalm 14:1. The judge declared April Fool's Day the Atheist holiday.....It gives me a new perspective on the day. 

There are many people who say there is no God, and who know there is a God but do not have God in their lives.  How do they do it?  How do they live day by day?  How do they go through the up's and down's of life without the Savior, without the King of kings and Lord of lords?  I stopped and prayed for the many people around me that don't know my Jesus.  

Time is short.  Get the Word out.  Tell people today that there is a Savior. There is a Balm in Gilead. There is a Great Physician. There is a Comforter. There is a Friend that sticketh closer than a brother. There is a Way-maker, Healer, Peace-giver, Path-lighter.  Are you getting it?  HE IS ALL WE NEED!!!  He is the Alpha and Omega, Beginning and the End....PRAISE THE LORD!

That is my thought for the day.  God is good and God is Right.

My verse for the next 2 weeks is:

Exodus 14:14 (KJV)
"The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace."

I'm using the King James Version, but I looked it up in The Message and here is what it says:

"God will fight the battle for you. 
      And you? You keep your mouths shut!"

Simply said??

"The LORD bless you, and keep you:
The LORD make his face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace."

Please post your prayer requests...We have prayer warriors!!!

March 15, 2011

Wow, where does the time go!!! We are enjoying our Spring Break, we are still wondering when the break comes in. We are doing things around the church and house which we can't get done while working. The best part is not having to get up at 4:00 am.
Almost everyday we hear or see of more disasters occuring around the world. It is amazing to see God's word fulfilled. It sure appears that "Time is Short". It helps to hide God's word in our hearts to help us go through the trials of life. I have been able to share scripture with others who are going through some difficulties in the last couple of weeks. It is great how the Lord gives you just the right verse when you need it.
Here is my verses "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9 KJV
Remember to just pick up where you left off, don't get discouraged and just quit. Just find another verse, post it, and hide it in your heart. Also, invite others to join us. We add new friends weekly so don't forget to invite them.
Don't forget to share your prayer requests: Continue to pray for Dave Berg, Patti Bailey and Joanne Nelson.

In like a Lion, Out like a Lamb....

I heard that phrase today on the television.  The March weather has truly come in like a lion.  When the weatherman said that I thought....Jesus is my Lion, my Shepherd, my Saviour, my Friend.  He is there to protect, love, nurture; He gives wisdom, forgiveness, comfort, and understanding.  "Oh, how He loves us, oh, oh, how He loves us."  I'm so undeserving, I'm not worthy of His grace, yet in the lowest places of our lives, on the mountain tops of our lives, HE IS THERE!!!
And He's Ever Interceding
Someone to go the extra mile
Just like a mother caring for her child
A friend who sticks through thick and thin
No matter where you've been
Just like one great big family
A stronger older brother He will be
So quick and ready to defend
The younger, weaker 'til the end
And He's ever interceding to the Father for His children
Yes, He's ever interceding to the Father for His own
Through Him, You can reach the Father
So bring Him all your heavy burdens
Yes, For you He's interceding so come boldly to the throne
Just like sheep we've gone astray
Struggling 'neath the debt we could not pay
Not ever hoping to renew
The love and friendship that we once knew
But He began to intercede
Crying, "Father please forgive, I plead"
And as the nails pierced His hands
God once again reached out to man

My Bible verse is from The Message....I usually don't read this translation much, but today it hits it...points straight to where I am...

"Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God's Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don't know how or what to pray, it doesn't matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good."

Romans 8:26 (The Message)

Hope y'all had a Happy Valentine's Day!
Scott and I had our first bus accident on Valentine's Day during our Mid-Day. We were heading back to transportation when a man in a pick up truck hit the back end of our bus. He pulled out of the right hand lane to get out of trafiic, right into our lane and hit us. No kids on the bus and no one was hurt. Praise the Lord! We pray every morning for safety.
Well, ladies hope you are doing good on your scripture memory. Let's try to invite others to join us. Ask ladies at your church if they want to join the Daughters of the King.
Please pass on prayer requests: Patti Bailey - kidney & pancreas transplant in 2008 - is in hospital right now getting antirejection meds.
"When Jesus heard that, he said,
This sickness is not unto death,
but for the glory of God,
that the Son of God might be glorified thereby." John 11:4 KJV
This is the verse the Lord gave me this time during my battle with cancer. I am giving my Lord the glory and trying to be a blessing to others that are sick.
Remember if you didn't start in January that is OK, just jump right in and start today.

What a month...

This month God has shown me so many things through my Bible Verses I have memorized.  I was talking to a friend yesterday about our new verses.  I told her I didn't have one yet, but God usually reveals one when I need it.

I then started to tell her about how these verses have been an important part of my life this past month.  I've been able to say(text) these verses to friends who are going through some very rough times.  WOW!  God works in ways we couldn't have on our own.  I'm humbled by the fact that He is using me to fulfill His purposes...

So here is my verse for the next two weeks..

"The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?"
Psalm 27:1 KJV

So, ladies, lets never forget to hide God's Word in our hearts!!

"Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee."
Psalm 119:11 KJV

Well, ladies, two weeks have come and gone!
How did your scripture memorization go? I did get my first scripture memorized. I am choosing scripture to help me right now. It is amazing how God's Word will comfort and strengthen you in times of need.
Jan. 1st
Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. Ps. 57:1 KJV
Here is my scripture verse for Jan. 15th
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16 KJV
So, again ladies, we would like to invite you to join us in memorizing two scriptures a month for the year. Some have had difficulties in posting their scripture so just jump right in now and get started. Just because you didn't get January 1st posted, start now. Here are step by step directions: 1) Go to blog, 2) Become a follower, 3) Go down to the comments box, 4) Type in your scripture, please give what version, your name, city & state, 5) It will ask you to pick a profile, pick Google, 6) Sign in and post. That is all there is to it. If you have problems, please ask Pam or I for help. Also, please invite your family, friends and church ladies to join us. Let's build an army of ladies who are willing to hide God's Word in their hearts.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Psalm 119:11 KJV
Many ladies just typed their verse on facebook, we can't all see it there. So please post on blog.
Don't forget to share your prayer requests. Just this week I learned of two more cancer victums. One is a bus driver at work with breast cancer, I can't share her name because she didn't want alot of people to know (in fact she already went through surgery and back to work this week). Another one is the 7 yr. old granddaughter (Kiera) of another bus driver (Lisa Loven) who has a neuroblastoma (fast growing). Next is a 6 week old baby (Reagan Faith Van Fleet) with serious heart problems.

Friday, January 7, 2011

How's it going my lady friends?  I'm so very excited...I have my verse about 90% memorized.  It has helped me a great deal this week.  Some of my friends are going through a very rough time and I think back on this verse and peace flows!!

Have a great weekend!  Be looking for Aunt Debbie's post on the 15th!!  

God is up to something good!

"Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin againt thee." Ps. 119:11 KJV
