- Peace for Shawn and I, for Kyle and Miranda and Braden and Connor, for our parents and siblings and nieces and nephews and inner circle friends watching and hurting as we go through this
- that God would keep soft our children's hearts toward Him through all the emotions of this hard journey
- strength and stamina; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually
- that the cancer shrinks to gone, gone, gone!
- gentle side effects to this second round of chemo

Chemo Round 3: Week 1, Day 1

Headed to Vancouver Cancer Agency for my new chemo.  As I was laying awake last night (been awake since 3am, yay spazzy meds!) and praising God and just chilling out in my bed an image came to mind: you know the mouthwash commercial where the bright teal blue wash swooshes in amongst the teeth and washes the tartar away... that image of this chemo swooshing in and washing the cancer cells out of my body.  I wasn't sad or worried or fretting but just thanking God for today's chemo.  And that image has come to me again and again this morning and gives me hope. Let's be hopeful together, shall we!!!


  1. Hey! Look at YOU pretty lady! Praying that you have an awesome day today.

  2. You look beautiful and I love your beautiful vision! You were prayed for fervently this morning at ladies prayer! "Come to me and I will give you rest—all of you who work so hard beneath a heavy yoke. Wear my yoke—for it fits perfectly—and let me teach you; for I am gentle and humble, and you shall find rest for your souls; for I give you only light burdens.” Matt. 11:28-30

  3. All the best for today...LOVE the look...really suits you!

  4. All the best for today...LOVE the look...really suits you!

  5. Love, love, love the hair!!

  6. When I used to suffer from panic attacks I would visualize God pouring his peace into the top of my head from a water pitcher and would feel it reach all the way to my toes!
    Yeah for chemo and modern medicine.
    You are looking quite pretty!

  7. Yes! Hopeful together!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Hi Kristin!

    Peace and prayers from Mexico from an ex-pat. I don't know how I came upon your blog but I am thinking of you and praying for you and your family daily.

  9. Wow! Prayers from around the world! Sinead: Ireland, Inese: Mexico... that is so special! I am constantly thankful and amazed for the people praying for my sister, encouraging her, and helping her along on this journey. Big hugs to you all from me.
    And Rachel, what a beautiful visual, I will be using that one!
