Monday's Strength. Book Date. Pressing On. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Monday's Strength
God's timing is perfect.  His ways are higher than our ways.  I realizes this even more when remembered sharing  this verse not long ago.   

Two days later, I leaned on it - hard.
My dad has been diagnosed with METS - metastatic cancer.  You can read more about it here.  
So, yes, I am leaning on this verse as well as many others.  My daughter sent me this song.  


God is good - all the time.  All the time, God is good.  We can indeed trust Him.

Thank God For My Cancer Diagnosis. Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching. Sunday Stats from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Thank God For My Cancer Diagnosis

Yes, you read correctly:  Thank God for my cancer diagnosis.  There's a verse that I remember when I am confused about my journey:  Isaiah 55:8-9.  When life hits, this is my go-to verse, my anchor.  Life has hit.  Dad has been diagnosed with METS (metastatic cancer).  He has advanced stage prostate cancer that metastasized to his bones.  In November 2018 his CT scan was clear, now it's not.  
We are very close - his role throughout my life has been both mother and father.  I thank God that I have been down ...

Monday's Strength. Book Dating. Pressing On. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Monday's Strength

When we are weak, He is strong.  In our times of pain, we can count on God.  Always.  

I took a walk with God this evening.  I needed Him.  My heart is breaking bit by bit as I see my Daddy grow weaker and weaker due to some unknown, un-diagnosed ailment.  

As I prayed, I played my "Gentle Praise" playlist.  This song blessed me.  
         
When I am weak, He is strong.  In my times of pain, I can count on God.  Always.  And so can you.

Will you join me in believing?

I Spy Baby Quilt from The Cozy Quilter


You may remember seeing this quilt top a few weeks ago.  Life has been rather busy lately (more on that later in the post) so I did not have time to quilt this top until this week.  I do my pin basting on my kitchen floor.  It's a little hard on the knees, but it did not take too long to get all those pins in place.


I started by using a serpentine stitch to quilt the sashing.


My daughter had a wooden Thomas train set when she was little.  We had a canoe when I was a child ...

A Happy Anniversary & More! from Val's Quilting Studio

Oh My! I've been off having fun on vacation to sunny Arizona where we grew up. 
Hubby and I celebrated our 29th Anniv...

...and my Dad celebrated his 80th.

Both on Super-Bowl Sunday! Can you say P A R T Y!!!!!

Yes! We got married on my Dad's birthday and never has a year gone by without the ongoing "joke" that my husband gets a "check-in-the-mail" every month for taking me off his hands. ARG!

We traveled together as a family and our little guy so enjoyed his first plane ride from Oregon to Arizona. Lucky me! He ...
