Trusting, Leaning and Walking One Day At A Time

The Vision of Marriage

I am calling this one the “Vision of Marriage” because marriage is not about “Staying in love”. But I’ll get back to that in a minute. The Cancer Trail January 1st, 2019 will probably live in our brains the rest of our lives. It was the day we got an answer to prayer that Amy…

What Pity Party? Welcome

This is not the normal blog that I write, but this is one that has been on my heart for a little while due to something that was said to me by someone from afar. The comment was one born out of bitterness and hatred says that my life is a “pity party” and “cheese…

The Silent Enemy

The week of May 6th – 10th was an interesting, difficult, challenging and very long week. I am calling this post “the silent enemy” because we really do have a silent enemy that we can’t see or hear, but we know he is real because the Bible says, 1 Peter 5:8, “Be sober-minded; be watchful.…

Oh The Ups and Downs Of Life

May 7, 2019 This past week was not as much fun as anyone would like to have walked through. I have thought for several days how to describe this past week. There is so much involved in walking through any major illness. As the days fade away and we continue to walk forward through this…

April 26, 2019: Hooray, Great News

April came and went really fast this year. This whole year is going by to fast. It really does seem like when you are a kid time is so ssssllllooooowwww! But as an adult married with kids, it feels like time is flying by like I’m driving our family in a ferrari. I am happy…

Where are you running to?

It really does seem like the road ahead is a stretched barren straight path that just vanishes off into the sunset with no end near. Those are some of the days and other are brighter. It is easy to get caught up in the turns of life and sometimes choose left or right and lead…

April 2, 2019: Wait it’s not over yet

Since my last post, the month went by very fast. I found that I was very burned out and so very tired. We were on the home stretch of driving every day and Amy completing her radiation cancer treatments. Sorry I have left everyone in the dark for a while. Here is the latest in…

March 19: The Month Is Almost Over

It’s hard to believe that the month of March is almost over. This month has gone by so very fast, it was like a speeding car rushing by and all you could feel was the wind through your hair. The first two weeks of this month were completely overwhelming with driving everyday, appointments until noon,…

March 6: Time Flies By

I haven’t shared anything for a little while because these days are overwhelming. Amy is halfway through her radiation treatments. Cancer sucks! The radiation is treatments are helping with the brain cancer but also the side effects are here now. She is tired. There are many side effects that can happen to brain cancer patients.…

Feb 21: Almost A Week Into Treatments

We are almost a week into my wife’s treatments. I praise God that they are going well. Amy is tired a little more after her treatments now. The drive to and from the hospital is what takes longer each day than the actual treatments. The ladies on the oncology team that greets Amy every day…

Feb 17, 2019: What Are You Walking Through?

What are you walking through? I write this because we just don’t know what people are walking through in life when we interact with them. It may seem like someone is unkind, impatient or a host of other things on the surface, but we just don’t know what they are walking through. The other day,…

Feb 8, 2019: Kids In School

Week number two with kids in school down. I had this novel idea when the kids were in school that I would be getter more done at home and at work. Well, that ship sailed and it’s just not the case. That’s okay, God is sovereign and it is all working out. This week has…

Feb 2, 2019 – Radiation Treatments

This week was crazy week! There really is nothing else to call it. The week started off good, but quickly got crazy. Our middle child got sick and I ended up taking her to the ER and spending half of the day there with her. Thankfully, there was nothing major, just a bad stomach bug…

Feb 2, 2019: Today Was Another Good Day

Today was a good day. Amy is doing so much better. We had a good visit with the radiology doctor this week. She has gained some weight which is much needed to start treatments. I praise God for that. She is doing well with the gaining her strength back. It is hard to believe that…

January 29th: Are We Equipped For This Challenge?

Are we equipped for this type of challenge in life. No, we aren’t. There is nothing in life that prepares you for the challenge of walking through or watching someone you love so deeply walk through cancer or any other major illness. There is so much about this from the shock of hearing the words…

Jan 27, 2019: Day 27 – The Lord Gives Wisdom

The Lord Gives Wisdom (Proverbs 2:6) I don’t think I have ever been more exhausted in my life than I have been for the past two weeks. Homeschooling the kids, feeding, clothing, and just caring for them all day is a lot of work! Add this running a business when I can and caring for…

January 24, 2019: Day 24:

Thank you, everyone, for all of your help. It is overwhelming the number of people that have donated, sent us cards, phone calls, and text messages. Than you so very much! Today was a good day. One of the challenges that Amy going through that has affected her tremendously is diet. When you are fighting…

Day 22: The Cancer Journey

Day 22: After a whirlwind of shock and appointments with doctors one of the biggest challenges for someone with cancer is fighting to keep the weight on when you are sick and don’t feel like eating. The first thought is to eat super healthy, lots of fruits and veggies. Juice them, blend them, etc. But…

Jan 18: Today Was A Good Day

Today was a good day. Amy had her strength up today for the doctor’s visit. I praise God for all that he has done in our lives so far. We truly feel blessed even in the middle of the storm. I remember sitting in the emergency room with my wife on January first as the…

January 1st, 2019 – The Shocking News

On January 1st, I took my wife Amy to the emergency room because she had not been feeling well and had some severe symptoms. We arrived and immediately she was checked out and they determined that a CT Scan should be done. A World Upside Down That is when our world turned upside down. We…
