ISAIAH 61:1-4

ISAIAH 61:1-4

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me and has anointed me to
Preach the good news to the poor. .
Bind up the brokenhearted,
Proclaim freedom for the captives,
Proclaim release from darkness for the prisoners,
Comfort all who mourn
Provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them
The oil of gladness for mourning
And a garment of praise for a spirit of heaviness

Chemotherapy Update

Today I get only shots for boosting blood counts and no chemo. This is the week of rest. That's exciting. Sometime Tuesday afternoon, the effect of the shots will kick in and I'll have a bit more energy again. Whew! Although...I explained my typical "tired" schedule to a friend yesterday: eat breakfast and read the paper, usually do the crossword and the Sudoku, work on my computer for awhile then rest a bit before lunch. Work a bit more after lunch, then rest again. Bob comes home and we have dinner. Then I rest some more. My friend was laughing saying it sounded like a pretty good schedule to him. He'd probably love it -- for about a week or so. :)

Anyway, I'm excited about the prospect of feeling better and being able to do more...maybe dispense with most of the "rest" times. I guess I'm a bit like a 3 year old who is certain she doesn't need naps anymore. Naps are boring things. (Unless you need them). Don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely grateful that I don't have to fight the battle of trying to put in a full day's work while I'm this fatigued. It would probably land me in the hospital. God has been good and I'm thankful.

I'm still looking forward to this week, however!!
