Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching. Stash Report from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song


Have you heard of the movie, "Yesterday"?  We saw it this past Friday and, though I enjoyed it, I was touched anew by the song "Hey Jude" that played during the credits.  These lyrics touched me deeply.  

"Take a sad song and make it better".
"And anytime you feel the pain
Hey Jude, refrain
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it's a fool
Who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder"
As I listened to these lyrics as if for the first time, I realized that ...

Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching. Sunday Stats. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song
When the negative self-talk is winning,
when the negative voices talk too loud,
when I stay too long in the dangerous neighborhood of my mind, 
I have to remember that Grace Wins...
every time, Grace Wins.

If you are in a dark place feeling like you have no worth,
feeling like you can never be forgiven,
feeling like your mistake was too big,
remember,
grace wins - 
every time, grace wins.

Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching. Sunday Stats. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song
Have you ever been at a crossroads where you can either trust God and move forward or stand where you are and perhaps never know what could have been?
Maybe this song is for you - and me.

LORD, give us courage to trust You more and more every day, I pray.

Slow Stitching 
I finished up my second "accidental block pillow" and got the binding sewn on.  My living room is brightening up with these 30's fabrics!  
Today I'll be fixing up Block 5, Dorothy, of the Hand Pieced Quilt Along and maybe work on ...

Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching. Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

via GIPHY
Saturday's Song
This song begins with praise for our LORD and Savior.  The plea that follows is amazing:  "Open up my eyes in wonder, show me who you are and fill me with Your heart and lead me in love to those around me."  Imagine if this were the cry of every human being on Earth?!  How our world would be changed!  
If we would do this and then build our lives upon His love as a firm foundation, the possibilities would be endless.  
I am learning to once again put my trust ...

Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching and Organizing. Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song
God is good all the time, 
all the time God is good.
"I will open up my heart and let the Healer set me free!"

Can I get an amen?  :)
Slow Stitching
One good thing about spending time in hospitals is there is plenty of time to stitch!  This year has certainly offered me a lot of time for hand stitching!  The hand piecing QALs I joined have been a blessing.  As we know, slow stitching is soothing to the soul.  Here are some of my latest blocks!  These are from the Hand Pieced QAL from Elm ...

Dad - an update. Saturday's Song. Slow Stitching Sunday. Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Update on Dad and Saturday's Song

I mentioned here that my family is on yet another journey with cancer.  Dad has Stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer that is treatable.
That.
Is.
Treatable.
God has the last Word - regardless of the "Little c", the Big C has our back.  
Tomorrow is his surgery, so I asked him if I could move back home to spend a bit of time with him as he recovers.  He smiled and said, "Of course!"  I promised him I wouldn't be sneaking out of the windows (as I may or may not have done ...

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.


Book Date
There hasn't been a lot of changes on ...

Wednesday's Word. I like! from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Wednesday's Word
"Without faith, hope has nothing to attach itself to."
           -Jana Alcorn Don't Throw in the Towel, Hope Again!
How very true.  
Do we see a loser in our life or do we see the person God sees?  
Do we see possibility or impossibility?
Do we see dying or being healed in Heaven?
Do we see pain or growth in the struggle?
Do we have hope or despair?

It's hard to have the later of these in times of trials, but precious one as we cling to the Father, His Word, listen to inspirational music, read ...

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 ...
