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 ...

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

Saturday's Song.
This video of God Only Knows by King and Country is shocking, but so true.  I just read that a suicide attempt is made every 28 seconds!  Dear one, God knows you, He never leaves you.  People will let us down, but not God.  Try Him.

Let us all look around us and who kindness.  A smile, a prayer, a gentle touch of encouragement to a stranger/friend/loved one could change their lives.  
Take good care!

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

Saturday's Song
Here is a love letter from the Savior who loves you.  


Promise Me

It's hard to imagine that
I've been there too
I've felt the passion burning in you
Every temptation, oh, I understand
Your Savior knows what it is to be a man
Promise me... promise me...
Before the passion turns to flame
Promise me you'll call my name
Promise me... promise me...
You'll remember these scars of grace
And remember I took your place
Promise me
I know what it's like when the
Nightmare comes true
Someone ...

Life Happens.  Believe me, I get it.  Been there.  Done that more times than I can count.  

Keep walking in your faith!

Slow Stitching Sunday
I spent all morning downloading my patterns and materials lists and instructions from Craftsy.  Now, I'll be onto sewing after I post this and visit a few party guests as well as my hostesses!  

My sewing plan for today is to connect these final flowers to finish the next row of my GFG.  
Here is the progress I've made on my "Prayer Afghan).  The recipient lost her husband to brain ...

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

Saturday's Song.
Events late in 2017 led me to practice surrendering my will to God's with trust and hope in 2018.  It's been a journey of growing faith, personal victory, stronger faith, joy, peace, surrender, steadfast faith, perseverance, building of character, strength - so many blessings from one mere trial!  Additionally, unbeknowest to me, God worked through 2018 to strenghthen me for 2019 as my dad, who has been both mother and father to me, has sudden, new health issues.  

Regardless of the challenges that 2019 may bring, let us choose to go forth with the LORD's ...

Hello Everyone in "Bloglandia"!  I hope you all are doing well and enjoying our wonderful month of so many celebrations!  
I am slowly returning to normal after a fall season of health ups and downs.  New meds, new routines and rest have been so helpful!  As my siblings and I begin to care for my ailing father, posts will be less frequent than before, but still infused with love, faith and, of course, crafty news!  I so appreciate your patience!

Here is our Saturday's Song!  Enjoy!

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

Saturday's Song & Health Update
Perhaps a few of you have noticed my absence from "Bloglandia" this week.  Since the last week of August, I have been in a fibromyalgia flare up - experiencing unusual pain, fatigue and, now, burning, neuropathy-like pain, in my feet, especially in my left foot.    It's been almost a year since these ailments have reared their ugly head.  Praise God, I have been able to work thus supporting my sweet Student Teachers.
                               
I may be in pain, have to rest more than I would like, and be unable to do all I would like but ...

Saturday's Song:  Clean
My sweet reader, 
God loves you.  Nothing you have done, said or thought can separate you from Him.  He washes you clean and frees you from your past!  
I should know.
He has cleansed me time and again.
Will you believe long enough to let Him and walk in freedom?

Saturday's Song:  Dream Small
The title sounds unusual, but it's so true!  Those "little" things we do every day, are huge!

Above all else, LORD, help us remember our lives, our work, our calling is in Your hands.  Amen.

 Today was an amazing birthday party for my husband.  So, tonight I'll be resting with some crocheting on my  Spring Granny Square Afghan

and Prayer Shawl #10.  
                                   

This yarn is a dream to work with and I love the colors!  I may add an edging to add some beads....

You are going to do great things, believe in God and in yourself!  


God bless you all as you go forth as Abraham did!

 Today I'll be working on Prayer Shawl #10.

Saturday's Song: Surrounded (Fight My Battles). Slow Stitching. Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday Song: Surrounded
This week I was surrounded and then I heard this song, "Surrounded" sung by Michael W. Smith.  I was immediately encouraged and reminded who my Savior is!   


When we are surrounded, let us remember we are surrounded by God Himself!

Today I slowed down with crocheting.  I made progress on my Spring Granny Afghan:

I also finished dishcloths 16-18/52 for the #yarnhoarderdishclothchallenge!

Saturday Song: by the artist: T.E.S.T. Slow Stitching Sunday. Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday Song:  T.E.S.T.

I know this young man very well, yes I do.  T.E.S.T. stands for Through Eternity Standing Tall.  He bases his music on this Scripture:
He just released this album and I couldn't be more proud of him.  If you know someone who is struggling in their faith, this music will touch their hearts.  Just forward this link to them.  
By the way, yes, I do like Christian rap....

Saturday's Song: Oh My Soul. Slow Stitching. Stash Report. A New QAL! from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song:  Oh My Soul
Someone who knows part of my story said they were angry at God on my behalf.  They wouldn't blame me if I lost my faith...and I have on occasion...many occasions.....
Until it didn't.
What changed?
My heart.
I finally let Him in.

And I was right to do so.
Because today my life overflows with 
joy,
peace,
love,
giggles,
faith,
trust,
healing
and so much more!



 Would you consider letting Him in?
I promise you - 
it's right to do so.

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

Saturday's Song:  The Broken Beautiful
Here is an upbeat song with a deep message:  
God's love will never change.
There's healing in His Name.
He makes broken things beautiful!

Have you been broken?  
I know I have.  
I bet you have as well.  

My dear, you are beautiful when you turn it all over to God!

Do you feel shame?
He took all that on Himself for you.

Are you scarred?
Well, if His scars are the evidence of healing, mine must be as well!
I'll never look at my chemotherapy port scar the same again ...

Saturday's Song: Tell Your Heart To Beat Again Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song:  Tell Your Heart To Beat Again
November 26, 2014.  
"You have a tumor in your breast.  It's really deep in there.  You need a good surgeon because this type of tumor cannot be handled by just any surgeon."

My heart stopped beating for a season.

November 13, 2015.
After 6 months of chemotherapy and 42 days of radiation, I reached the last day of treatment!  
As I drove home, I erroneously believed I would immediately return to the person I was before.

It's been 2 1/2 years and I still live with the effects ...

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

Saturday's Song
Are you feeling under pressure lately?  Perhaps work issues?  family issues?  emotional issues?
This song tells how God He can make diamonds out of dust - the dust of our pain.  Jon Steingard does a great job of sharing the story behind this song.  

All I know is that diamonds are created under pressure - immense pressure.  
Pressure is something we are all familiar with.  Guess what?
We've all survived begin under great pressure - heck - some of us have even thrived!
We're being made into diamonds dear readers - we're being made into beautiful, precious, valued diamonds ...

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

Saturday's Song
Have you ever been depressed?  
Have you ever felt like there was no end to your plight?  
Remember this saying?
Sometimes when my heart is broken, I remember to go through an alphabetical gratitude list.  Rend Collective has an encouraging - and true song - about this very concept.

Here is the video of the story behind this song.  It's worth a listen.

It's worth your time.
You. Are. Not. Alone.
Hugs to you!

Our peace is in Jesus Christ alone.

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


Saturday's Song
Today I'll be sharing a song in honor of my Dad.  He tells me to live life fully and make memories because "It's Later Than I Think"!  


Just as our earthly fathers have hopes and dreams for us, how much more our heavenly Father?

We can trust Him.  
We really can.
