Just Go For It!!

When thou goest, thy way shall be opened up before thee step by step…Prov.4:12

Well the time has come, I am loosing my hair and it everywhere!!! I have been really struggling these last few days with the idea of having to cut it all off and even as I write this I am mourning its loss. God made the woman this way and He calls it our glory. I know also that I am vain at heart and that’s probably why it hurts too….

But knowing God has chosen this path for me makes all the difference. I have to step out boldly in faith and I know He will give me all I need to go through this too. He promised!!!! Amazingly again today’s devotional talked about how the Lord never builds a bridge of faith except under the feet of the faith filled traveler. If we see the bridge ahead it would not be a bridge of faith. This is what walking by faith and not by sight means, what great lessons I am getting from this.

“Is there a great barrier across you path just now? Just go for it, in the name of the Lord, and it won’t be there.” HCTrumbull

So today I will go with my girls and shop for some bandanas and possibly a wig….this will be fun…..:) and then visit my hairdresser.

Also a quick update, Monday I had another treatment. My white blood cells and platelets were very low but they decided to go ahead with the treatment anyway. I am feeling good, eating and drinking well. Tomorrow we go to Sudbury to see my oncologist for a check-up after this first round of chemo.

Please continue to pray for us. Especially that in my weakness today He will be strong!!!

In His Hands,


  1. Dear Miriam, Wow. It must be so sad to say goodbye to your hair. I can't imagine how hard that would be. But I hope you have fun shopping. Can't wait to see what you look like in the wig! If you get one, be sure to post a photo!!

    I praise God that through this trial He is giving you things that are far better than a nice head of hair. Things that can't even compare. May His grace mean more to you than anything, and may you grow in appreciation of all that you have in Christ. Love, Lorna

  2. Dearest Miriam...I can not imagine how you are feeling right now but please know that we are praying for you to be strong...With or without hair your beautiful shining face and smile will still be there ...May God grant you all you stand in need of right now...Have fun shopping with the girls....Love and hugs to you....Tara

  3. Dear Miriam, I watched my daughter lose all her hair a couple of times during her treatments. It was hard for her as well. I know so many people will tell you "It's just hair, and it grows back" and it does, but it is still a very hard thing to come to terms with. I am glad to hear you are feeling good. If you need a hat, let me know Jessie has about 50 of them in different colours, and her hair is finally starting to grow back.
    Take care of yourself, Renee Norbury

  4. Dear Miriam,
    I feel your pain losing your hair but just think of all the fun trying on different hairstyles and colors!! I'm sure you are going to look beautiful in all of them. It's going to be hard to choose just one! Please know that you are in my prayers every night.
    God Bless you and your family.
    Have fun shopping.
    Love, Klare
