Radiation Update - 1st Vlog - 2 Timothy 4:17

Last week proved to be a busy week as I adjusted to adding radiation treatments to my daily schedule. So, sorry for the silence this last week. A lot of newness and change was added, not just for me, but my husband and children.  This is my first attempt at posting a vlog, and that too, proved to be a learning curve and a test of my patience as I learned how to upload it!! I am not a technical person, and we don't have a video camera, so I attempted using my laptop's webcam....I don't think I'll do this very often, but thought it would be a quick and more personal way to let you all know how my new treatment was going....and you get to see my new hair....probably more exciting for me than you...but thought I'd share!

Thanks so much for your ongoing prayers! God is faithful and continues to carry us each step of the way. Much love to you all!

Here we go.....:)

Thank you for taking the time to make this vlog. God is using you and your circumstances to be a voice for Him. What a beautiful testimony your life is of Christ.

You are beautiful inside and out. May our Lord continue to carry you through this journey. As we remember that this world is not our home and one day we will be in glory with Him forever more.

Blessings,

Stacy, you are beautiful inside and out!! My Anna is next to me and agrees! I have to say you have such a sweet voice... I love hearing your voice...

Thanks for the great encouragement today Stacy... I always feel like the battle you are enduring is so much BIGGER than what I am enduring... But you are spurring me on friend! Thankyou!

I am so glad that your radiation is going well! That was great news!

May our gracious God continue to carry you right now!

Oh Stacy I am soo glad you posted today as I have been wondering how the radiation has been going. The fact that you did a vlog was sooo exciting. I love those. I love how it really does give you more of a "feel" of the person. How beautiful you are! And not just on the outside, but on the inside as well...It just pours right out of you what the Lord is doing in your heart. I find that verse and section of scripture particularily encouraging as well, and I am soo glad you shared it. The radiation doesn't sound too bad, and how grateful I am for you. I will continue to pray for you everyday! How wonderfully exciting that your hair is growing back. My middle son has that same patch of "white" hair on his head practically in the same place you do. How funny huh? Had it since he was a little boy. I imagine on a woman it just looks like a beautiful highlight streak....My son wears his hair quite short and is always soo visible, haha...

It won't be long (time whips by soo fast) and you will be on the other side of this treatment praising God for walking you through step by step.

You have soo blessed me today!

HUGS, Debbie

It seems that every time I open your blog I am stepping into a divine appointment with God. This post hit home for me on so many levels. A feeling of deep lonlieness is something that I have experienced often in recent days and weeks in my journey through suffering and adversity. Thank you for the reminder that even in the moments when I feel alone God stands with me. And He has given me all the armor I need to stand firm in the battle. You are radiant! I really love the video blog- It adds such a personal touch! It really feels like it is a personal conversation between you and viewer! Thank you for sharing and for pouring His truth into my heart. God gave me such a gift when He led me to your blog for the first time! I have been praying for you and I will continue.
Much Love in Christ,
Melissa

IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT.
Six key words from Ephesians 6:10 that allow us to "stay strong in the Lord". So glad to see that you are resisting the temptation to draw solely from within to stay strong, and that you are abiding in Him.

Great to SEE you!! and am blessed by the details of your journey -- both physical and spiritual.

Make some room in your budget for a new eye lash curler, gel, pony tail holders and bows for your new hair!! Oh yah, and razors too ;-) Lol.

With hope and good cheer!

Love you,
Melissa

The eyes of grace and Jesus, shining forth through you and your words! A lonely leg of the journey, indeed, flanked by the presence of the Almighty.

You are precious to me and are always in my thoughts and prayers. And your hair is gorgeous... as is! I look forward to growing my own in the days to come.

Keep to it...
