Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

This past week has been pretty good. Within a few days after Mondays treatment I was feeling really good. I had my appetite back, my taste was coming back and still no hair loss. Our bodies are amazing!!!
One hot afternoon my friend Beth came over and joined me in putting up our feet , sipped cold drinks and had good conversation……My neighbor Marie brought us a delicious dinner again….thanks Marie. On Friday Tara brought me for some more tests but the real reason :) (shhh) we went was to go shoppppinggg……..had a great time. Saturday was a blast, I finally got to join Nandor on a motorcycle ride. I am now healed up enough from the surgery that I can ride.

Thank you all again for your prayers….God has been so good to me. I had a little cry the other day feeling sorry for myself….I sometimes feel useless, not being able to be up and doing what I do as mother…wife….neighbor…friend…etc. I told God I just want to do something that is useful not just lay in bed…… Then He assured me….my child you are being useful to me, in My economy its not the rushing around, being busy etc that is useful, it is when you can’t “do” anymore…. That’s when I can start “doing”….You are in the most useful place because I put you there and its not you it Me that can “do” now. Wow, how awesome is that….

Be still my soul, the Lord is on they side!
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God to order and provide
In every change He faithful will remain
Be still, my soul-thy best, thy heavn-ly friend
Thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end..

In the palm of His loving hand,
Miriam

  3. Hello Miriam

    I sit here with tears in my eyes...scolding myself. After a wonderful weekend with my Husband Grant...I returned him to the airport and we said our goodbyes...until the next time we see eachother. Why am I scolding myself? Well...our situation is miniscule in comparison to the medical journey you are in the midst of. I just want you to know how reading your BLOG puts things in perspective for me. I pray for a even a speck of your positive outlook:-) Thank-you Miriam for sharing with us! I pray daily that God keeps you in His tender loving care. Till we meet again...God Bless (((((HUGS)))))

    Hello Miriam and Nandi
    Finally figured out how to do this "blogging", and we hope it's going to work.
    We are certainly wishing and praying for you that you might continually feel God's presence, blessings and grace day by day as you go through all the therapies and treatments that are so much the part of all who have Cancer.
    We also pray that the Lord will encourage your whole family during this journey, and their role as your support.
    The Lord be with you always

    Love Ted and Helen
