Moving forward

You know, even when I want to curl up and hide somewhere.

I have an appt with UT Southwestern this Friday.  After I got off the phone with the scheduler, I thought to myself that this is probably the fastest I've ever gotten into a cancer center.  Hopefully this means that something positive is going to happen from all this.

So maybe I'll just try not to think about all this junk until Friday? 

The weekend was really nice, anytime I'm supposed to have chemo and don't is really nice.  We bummed around town, visiting a comic book store, stopping for iced coffee, eating at a new restaurant, hanging out with friends at church. 

I have this thing on my phone called Daily Bible (or something like that).  Today this verse popped up:

John 14:27  Peace I leave with you;  my peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give to you.  Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

I thought it was very relevant to my situation, and probably a lot of situations out there.  Sometimes I freak out in my mind and then I remember.  I don't have to be afraid because no matter what, God wins. 

Hugs, friends and family.  And please pray.
