A busy day

Yesterday was the first time I have driven in a couple of months. I had a lot of extra energy, or so I felt, so Lisa had me run some errands while she was at work. I didn't even leave Bellevue but it was really the first time I had been out and about since the cancer started. It was a little strange.

Then in the afternoon I showed my truck to a gentleman and that took far more energy than I thought it would. Then after that Lisa and I went to an "open house" type deal for a friend of ours who is moving to Africa for missions work sometime in the near future. (We didn't think we'd be able to make it because of my chemo treatments, but this delay allowed us to go and see how everyone is doing.)

I also got a notice the other day that an email address I've never given anyone, nor ever used was almost full on my server. "Huh..." I wondered to myself. "I've never checked that email address in the time I've owned this server, nor have I given it out to anyone. How could this almost be full?" Little did I know that THAT email address is somehow the default "catch all" for any emails that are sent to the server that don't have accurate email addresses. Want to guess how many emails were sitting there unread? Try 51,000 emails. Hands down the biggest inbox number I have ever seen. The real task has been deleting them. Maybe I should check that account more often than every 3 or 4 years.

Today I have some visitors coming over, and some more people looking at the truck. Blood-work this morning as well. I'm not feeling as good today as I was yesterday and I wonder if I wore myself out a bit, but I think I'll be on the couch most of today, so I should be good and rested if they decide to start chemo tomorrow, or Friday, or maybe Monday. (It is so crazy hard to plan anything these days.)

Thanks for your prayers and support.



  1. Here is a verse for you today:

    "This is what the Lord says--your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
    'I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.'" (Is. 48:17)

    Praise God that He is directing evey step of this path we're on--every drip of chemo, every day in or out of the hospital, every contact you have with people. In His sovreignty, every moment of your life has been orchestrated according to His goodness. Never take that for granted.

    Praying for His perfect timing re: the next round.

    I love you,

    So what is your correct email address? I have a feeling that the reson you have never responded to my email was becuase it went to you "cath all"
