Sometimes a light surprises The Christian while he sings;
It is the Lord who rises With healing in His wings...
These words were running through my mind this morning, and I thought, "How perfectly fitting for my next blog entry"--which, for quite some time, I have been trying to decide how to write.
What to Do When God Rewrites Your Life--that’s the subtitle for Cary Schmidt’s book Off Script. I love it. Off Script. Is your life turning out exactly the way you wrote it? I doubt it. Mine isn’t.
I exercised this morning. And wondered, Why is this so hard? The new chill in the air as I walked to our neighborhood clubhouse was refreshing.
But once I got on the treadmill, I couldn’t figure out why my brief runs interspersed with the walks were so taxing.
If there's one blog I visit almost daily, it's Crystal Paine's Money Saving Mom. I love her practical tips, honest transparency, and conversational writing style.
It’s raining today and dreary outside, but I’m smiling anyway! Three reasons I can rejoice today:
1. Chemo is in the past.
Sixteen months ago I received my last dose of chemo drugs. I'm so glad it's over. If you've been through it, you know what I mean. And if you haven't, you can imagine.
I just have to share my latest favorite with you. It's one of those salads that I wouldn't have typically tried. But when a friend introduced me to a recipe that used broccoli slaw, spinach, and chicken, I started searching for some vegetarian recipes using broccoli slaw.
Broccoli is known to be an excellent cancer-fighting food. Among the cruciferous vegetables (think cauliflower, cabbage, kale), broccoli has the highest amount of sulforaphane.
"I can't believe these are healthy cookies," my friends say. That and, “I would make these. Send me the recipe, will you?”
So here I am today, back from a small blogging break, to share with you a fantastic recipe that a number of you have asked for.
Today I want to share a simple way to add more fiber, omega-3s, antioxidants, and protein to your diet. The benefits are all wrapped in a little seed called "chia."
My guess is that you first heard about these seeds from an advertisement for cute-looking chia pets
Today we're not talking about Chia Pets though.
Today we’re continuing to look at some practical ways to help a cancer patient. Last time we talked about three practical ideas:
- Send a card
- Pray for them (and let them know it)
- Take a meal.
Continuing on with another practical way to help.
