Book Review: Jesus Lives by Sarah Young

I love this book! I expected a day-by-day devotional. Jesus Lives is topical. Beginning with a statement from Him, she continues as if Jesus was speaking to me. Scriptures are provided for each devotional based on topic.

I enjoyed her thoughts on each topic and as I use this devotional each day, I will be listening intently for His words to me. I am now keeping it with my bible, journal and other study and quiet time materials.

I will be purchasing several copies as Christmas gifts this year.
This book was provided to me by Thomas Nelson Publishing. The opinions expressed here are my own.


Kaye’s oncology appointment

Well, I know that we probably prepared ourselves to hear the absolute worse prognosis.

But we actually heard some promising news and it was such a relief.

Just a few brief points:

:: not sure it is really in her bones at this point
:: sending her for a PET scan within next two weeks which will tell where, if any, the cancer has spread
:: it IS breast cancer and it is in a lymph node
:: if it is only there, he considers the cancer CURABLE (Praise Jesus!) and knows how he will cure her (meds, etc.)
:: if it is in her bones, considered Stage 4. Not curable but treatable and controllable and knows how he will approach treatment (meds, etc.)
:: possibly elsewhere, and if so, we will discuss it at the next appointment (two weeks from today) and treatment

They took a gallon or so of blood (she says, lol) today and with the PET scan to be scheduled soon, he hopes to get all of his answers. If not, there are other tests he might want to run.

All-in-all, it was a good appointment. I like her oncologist. My gut reading is two thumbs up and I always trust my gut.

Thank you so very much for your prayers and hugs and emails and text messages and phone calls today.

Book Review: Green by Ted Dekker

I am not sure why I requested this book to review. I think it is because I was reminded of the Left Behind series when I read the preview and I have heard so many great things about Ted Dekker’s books.

I have not finished the book…I just couldn’t get into it. I WILL finish it eventually, because I’m OCD like that.

It is my fault for stepping out of my usual genre.
