Looking to Jesus and Looking Forward

Hello dear readers,

Just a little update...

I'm one week out from my first chemotherapy session. I've been feeling pretty ill with side effects. Think of having the flu. Yeah, never mind. Don't think about it. It's not been fun.

Anyway, I'm still working out in my mind what I'm going to do here on the blog. I just published a couple of reviews, and I have a few left to get my pre-diagnosis obligations met. I hope to continue the thrifty week posts, but I just haven't done much but deal side effects this week and rest. I trust you'll be patient with me while I learn to be a good patient. Pun intended. ~smile~

For now, I'm hanging on to Jesus for dear life... literally. He is the author and finisher of my faith. I can trust him with my life, because he is completely trustworthy. What he has said, he will do. Healing is the children's bread. I'm asking for complete healing, and believing in faith that he will complete the work he's begun in me.

I'm so thankful for you dear ones who are taking this journey alongside me via the blog, Facebook, email, and by mail.

May God bless you all,


  1. May God give you all the strength you need... physically, and mentally and spiritually to get you through this journey. I'm praying for you, Laura.

  2. Praying with and for you, my dear friend.
    Your faith is inspirational.
    Hugs from Pennsylvania, and worry not about this space.
    We will be here whenever you can be!!!

  3. ((((HUGS)))) Laura. My love and prayers are with you my friend.

  4. Praying for you as you come to mind. God's grace and peace.

  5. Praying for you..Please keep us updated even in short reports when possible. Blessings of healing and peace to you. Sharon D.

  6. Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
    Look full in His wonderful face,
    And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
    In the light of His glory and grace. Praying always for you dear. May God touch you in a mighty way.

  7. I will be praying for you and your family. No need to reply, just know that prayers are coming your way from all over. You've uplifted many people thru your blog, and now it's time for us to return the favor. Take care!!

  8. Philippians 4:19 ... God shall supply your need for renewed health. God shall supply your need for increased faith & trust in Him. God shall supply your need for comfort & peace through this trial. Not only your needs, but your family's needs also. God not onky supplies our tangible needs (food, shelter, finances), but our spiritual needs also. I'm praying for you & your needs at this time. God bless you all!

  9. You have been in my thoughts and prayers every day! Hugs,

  10. Praying for you, Laura!
    You just take care of yourself, this blog will be here when you return. :)

    Sending many ((hugs)) your way!

    Thinking of you,

  11. Laura, I would never expect you to keep up with your social media while chemo is draining everything you have and your rest is of the utmost importance. One or two sentences to let us know how you're doing so we can adjust our prayers accordingly, will suffice. I know that our Great Healer is with you every step of the way.

  12. Praying much for you, dear friend, and believing alongside you that GOD is going to heal you and bring you through it all.


  13. Laura, I agree with Sharon's comment. We are all concerned for your health and welfare. You need to bask in the Lord's healing comfort. Just to know how you are managing and if there is ANYTHING any of us can do. You are in my thoughts and prayers throughout the day and night. Know you are loved dear lady.

  14. Do what you can with the strength you are given. A little here and a little there will work for all of us until you get well! Will be in touch!
    Hugs, Roxy

  15. Thank you all for your kindness to me!


Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
