Room With A View.


I am about a week behind on everything.

We moved recently from a 3,000 sq foot home to a 1100 sq foot home, and I thought I could manage this  great task amidst cancer treatment.

Because radiation is not like chemotherapy.  Right?

Right!   It’s not.

I am  still functional.  Where as I wasn’t with chemo.  AT ALL.

My hair is still growing.  Where as I was bald with chemo.

I am not being poked and prodded with needles every week, like I was with chemo.


The side effects of radiation are silent.

They creep  up on you.

Your skin starts to feel a bit  sunburned.

Then all of a sudden the fatigue hits.

And you are down.  And you hate it.  I hate it.

Because for the past three months I have worked hard in getting my health back to top condition.

Now all of sudden, I am OUT again.

It’s just different this time.

Not only is this a different treatment,  but I am in a different home, and a different community, away from my familiar for 13 years.

And yet……Brave calls out.

Not  because I have to be brave, but because I trust the one who makes me brave.

I trust the Brave in the Broken.

I trust HIM in me.

I trust HIM.

Live Brave Question 

Is there a situation where you are having to face a new type of Brave, because of unfamiliarity.?  Tell us about it on the facebook page.

  1. Your bravery, trust and faith are making mine stronger every day. I’ve never felt closer to God and I thank you for your part in that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your journey.
