Cancer Update

Well, another week done and it went fairly well! Did not need a procrit shot this week and all my blood levels were up to normal! Diarrhea is used control for now and I actually have some energy! Monday starts a new round of chemotherapy and there are only seven days of radiation therapy left! I still have my hair and the Doctors think I am doing very well! I thank God for all the blessings that He has given me, and they are many, including all the help and support of my Church family and a free washer and dryer from neighbors of family who just happened to buy new ones! God has provided my needs and I thank God for all of you who are and have taken the time to pray for me! God bless you all and have a wonderful Easter! I love you!

Not that there is enough entitlements already, but according to the proabort hags [yes I said hags] Christians are supposed to GLADLY give away our rights of free speech and freedom of religion to a higher cause – women trying to act like men.

So I give up God for someone to have sex and abortion on my dime?

#TellTheTruth about #Tolerance & Forced #Segregation

Truth and such a devious lie being promoted by those who support a culture of evil and accepted by the ignorant and willing! God bless you Rev, great reminder!

or…fun with #hashtags? NO, this post is about INTOLERANCE of SIN; or perhaps the nonsensical and ungodly tolerances of our society today? The Bible and the Constitution were never meant to ‘evolve’; these are sacred texts that are being beaten up to sidle up to an agenda…AN AGENDA. America is quickly reverting back to what it was before the first pilgrim stepped foot on New World soil.

#tellthetruth: Abortion re-teaches segregation to a so-called ‘tolerant’ society. Abortion is perhaps the greatest loophole maker since 1776. We have to save the planet for people that died an abortion death? For as idiotic as that sounds, think about it for a minute: WHO will be left to absorb any leftover environmental resources they will ALLOW us to use? 60+ MILLION are dead while the ‘tolerant’ and ‘diverse’ are creating a pseudo race of people that hate anything of God or that…

I will finish the first part of the chemotherapy on Sunday. The only real problem that I have is extreme fatigue and my Dr. has said he will probably give me Iron IV next week. I love you all and thank you for the prayers my friends. God is on the throne and in control. I give thanks to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I will continue to try to keep you updated as much as possible!

The Enigma of Sidewalk Ministry

Originally posted on The Christian Gazette:

Today is March 16th, or  3:16 Day  for those of us that have chosen Jesus as our Savior. We made a solemn CHOICE for Jesus Christ and His finished work that has set us free [ Rom 8:2 ]. Evangelical Christians  PRAY ….so, where do you pray? Where do you minister?

I CHOOSE to  pray and minister on the sidewalk at abortion facilities. Noticeably and notably, the Church is absent. If there is an enigma of sidewalk ministry it’s because we make it one.

It really isn’t that hard. The Word of God says:

v2 Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;
v3 meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains,
v4 that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
v5 Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside…

On Waiting and Letting the Lord Lead

Originally posted on The Christian Gazette:

This past week has been a week of hurry up and wait! Radiation therapy was not ready to start on Monday so they postponed chemotherapy till next Monday, but then the machine they use for radiation broke! So now everything is supposed to start this coming Wednesday! My poor husband is exhausted from driving long distance and is having trouble with his eyes! We also had a young great nephew die in a motorcycle accident last week!
This time has been a blessing in a way though! It has shown us what a wonderful God we have who works in the most awesome ways to provide our needs and answer prayers! Our very large extended family has been drawn closer, and they are wonderful in their help and support!
My friends, never think your prayers don’t work!!! While you may not see the direct evidence, He moves in amazing ways!

Don’t reject the Voice of truth (Hebrews 3:16)

voice of truth“And who was it who rebelled against God, even though they heard his voice? Wasn’t it the people Moses led out of Egypt?”
(Hebrews 3:16)

It has been about 5 months since I’ve written a post in the Three Sixteens series. (For my newer readers, this is my exploration of the strangely significant verses that appear in nearly all New Testament books at the point of Chapter 3, verse 16). This Hebrews 3:16 packs a great punch, bringing a serious warning from Israel’s history, that still challenges us today. Though the Israelites were rescued from slavery in Egypt, saw amazing miracles and plagues, pillars of fire and smoke, a sea that opened, Egyptians destroyed, manna from heaven, the tablets of the law – and though they heard the very voice of God – these people persisted in their desire to rebel. They hardened their hearts to their rescuing God. They…

Seeking Help through Prayer

In Daniel 9, a prayer is offered by Daniel who had been studying and learning that the desolation of Jerusalem would last for seventy years which was soon approaching. This prayer was to plead with the Lord after admitting the wrong the people of Judah had done. They had been unfaithful; refusing to obey God’s laws which resulted in judgment upon them. Their homeland had been destroyed and they had been exiled to Babylon for all these years.

While Daniel is praying, Gabriel appeared to give insight and understanding about Israel’s future in which foretold was six things that would occur over the next 490 years.

  1. The rebellion against God will be finished
  2. Sin will be put away during the Messiah’s reign
  3. Atonement will be made based on sacrifice
  4. A righteous government will be established under the Messiah
  5. All prophecies will be fulfilled

Cancer Update

This is just to let you know where things stand! I will have to have chemotherapy and radiation starting in a little over a week! Most of the time I will not be home nor probably be online! The good news is that they say this is 95-98% successful! I know it is in God’s hands and my faith rests with Him! Please keep me in your prayers and I will update you when I can! God bless you! Patricia aka loopyloo

Update 1: They are surgically implementing a port for the chemotherapy on Saturday and will find out more about the radiation on Monday

Update 2: Had the chemotherapy port put in today and the radiation consult has moved to Friday due to possible ice storm. I would rather not have to be on the road and it is about an hour and a half drive! Once every thing gets started, I will stay with my sister-in-law part of the time! She is only a few minutes from the cancer center! God bless you and thank you for your prayers! Love you all!

What Lies Are You Believing?


Wonderful reminder! God bless you!

Originally posted on GodLovesBummyla:

What Lies Are You Believing?

By Dr. Caroline Leaf

“What lies are you believing?’ The enemy has no power except to lie…and a lie has no substance because it hasn’t happened yet!

In science, something that hasn’t happened yet is called a probability. Every day as we make multiple decisions about the events and circumstances of life, we have to choose from amongst multiple probabilities. And these probabilities are either following God’s way or the enemy’s way…there is no in between.

When we choose to believe the lie, which is the probability, then the lie becomes a reality, an actual physical thought. According to science and Scripture: “as a man thinks in his heart. so is he(Proverbs 23:7).So we act and talk from our thoughts – the thoughts are the roots, and if they are lies we are acting upon lies!

When we choose God’s probabilities…

The Day One of My Students Fell Out a Window


Amazing how God works to get your attention! Great post and great blog! If you are not familiar with it, be sure to check out some of the other great posts! God bless you!

Last night we returned from an overnight camping trip to Wa-Floy out in the greenery of the Gatlinburg region.  What a great place!  The camp is under a massive renovation but I like what we experienced as it is.  Our lodge was built image in the 1940s and has that deep-timber take-on-any-weather type of feel complete with a generous fireplace and a massive kitchen.  I’ll be taking groups up on a regular basis, that’s for sure.

The study for this weekend was an intensive look at Mark 10, with an especial investigation of Jesus’ very words “and whoever wants to be first among you must be the servant of all.”  The reflective private time that each student had was very significant  - they considered personally how they could start serving the minute they got back on school campus on Monday.

Ah, how I love the camp setting, and my reasoning…

Book Review: The Walking Wounded: The Path from Brokenness to Wholeness



The link above is to Pastor Dan’s blog, but you may have to search for the review! It seems wordpress has a glitch!

Originally posted on Learning To Be Full Of Grace And Truth.:

One of the things I have come across more often than I would like in my pastoral ministry is abuse. Verbal abuse and bullying (of both youth and adults) has been the most common, but I have had people come to me who have dealt with more serious abuse: sexual, physical, and psychological. It is a sad fact that domestic abuse is no less common within the church as it is without. This is a very difficult and complicated issue to deal with on a pastoral basis. Abusers are often good at hiding under a guise of morality and victims are too often afraid to come forward for help. Add to that, that there is next to no training about this in seminary and good tools and resources are hard to find.

I am therefore very glad to be able to highly recommend The Walking Wounded: The Path from Brokenness…

This is such an amazing reminder! I have to admit that when they told me that the polyp was malignant, it hit me hard. I have had cancer before, uterine cancer thirteen years ago. I am also a former nurse and have worked the surgical floor and cared for people with different types of cancers.
But despite all that knowledge, I have something much more important! I have God! I have faith and I have powerful prayer warriors who lift me up and remind of what is important!
Friends, no matter what life throws at you, don’t forget that God loves you and there is nothing more powerful than Him. And when you call upon His warriors, they stand in the gap for you!…

I have been taking tests to find out what is wrong with me and have just been told that a polyp they removed is malignant. They are making appointments for both a hemotologist as well as an oncologist. It is in God’s hands but He has instructed us to go to Him in all things with prayer! Thank you and God bless you!

Have Mercy Upon Me, O Lord

Psalm 6:1 O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger,
neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.
2 Have mercy upon me, O Lord; for I am weak:
O Lord, heal me; for my bones are vexed.
3 My soul is also sore vexed:
but thou, O Lord, how long?
4 Return, O Lord, deliver my soul:
oh save me for thy mercies ‘sake.
5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee:
in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
6 I am weary with my groaning;
all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief;
it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.
8 Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity;
for the Lord hath heard the voice of my weeping.
9 The Lord hath heard my supplication;
the Lord will receive my prayer.
10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed:
let them return and be ashamed suddenly. (KJV)

Repent Now: Cancer Does Not Discriminate!


Please pray for this family and God bless you!

Hello sisters and brothers in Christ! I just felt the need to reach out and share my heart and the overwhelming pressure. I’m feeling pressed down. I found out my brother-in-law has cancer on the spine, lungs, chest, stomach and liver.

To top it off my mother in law has just had open heart surgery a few months ago. My husband is the baby of the bunch. It was just him and three other siblings. So that’s three boys, and one girl. Well, my husband lost his brother (2nd eldest) nine years ago from being hit by an eighteen wheeler while checking his tire. He lost his leg and endured much pain, and deceased shortly after.

Parents shouldn’t have to bury their children. But it’s happening.

To top that off my sister-in-law had to have a double mastectomy for breast cancer, a few years ago. Now this with the…

The Abuser and the Enabler: Two Faces of Evil

Reading the stories about Woody Allen and Dylan Farrow brings back a lot of memories for me, sadly memories that I would just as soon forget. My earliest memory is sexual abuse from my step-father, but unlike Dylan’s mother, mine refused to believe. By her actions, she enabled my continued abuse, as well as the abuse of others that I will not mention here.
Listening to the defenders of Mr. Allen, accusing Miss Farrow of lying because they know him and he couldn’t possibly do what he has been accused of, strikes me of some of the worst of enablers. He couldn’t do it because to them he is the nice guy, the guy you would like to live next door.
I understand innocent until proven guilty,I just wonder if they offer that same courtesy to the person making the claim of abuse? Or are they so quick to claim superior knowledge because to admit that the person they think is so nice, may instead be a monster!
Barbara Walters first instinct was denial, and that is acceptable. None of us want to believe our friends are evil, but going to the lengths that she has and using her power and position to accuse Miss Farrow of lying makes her an enabler, and that is another face of evil!

Has Mr. Obama had an Epiphany?

February 6, 2014|11:09 am

President Barack Obama:

“Today we profess the principles we know to be true,” he said. “We know that each of us is wonderfully made in the image of God. We therefore believe in the inherent dignity of every human being – dignity that no earthly power can take away. And central to that dignity is freedom of religion – the right of every person to practice their faith how they choose, to change their faith if they choose, or to practice no faith at all, and to do this free from persecution and fear.”

I am so thankful to hear President Obama make this statement on religious freedom! It seems that he has had an epiphany and I wonder when he will instruct his justice department to withdraw their persecution and prosecution of people of faith here who think that being forced to pay for abortions or provide services for those who promote homosexuality is a violation of their beliefs!

Obama declared:

“Promoting religious freedom is a key objective of U.S. foreign policy, and I’m proud that no nation on Earth does more to stand up for the freedom of religion around the world than the United States of America.”

This should be welcome news to the countries in which his administration has insisted that they must approve abortion in order to receive aid!

Mr.Obama also said:
Some of the reasons to promote religious freedom is when they protect the religious freedom of their citizens, this, in turn, helps U.S. national security.

“History shows,” he said, “that nations that uphold the rights of their people, including freedom of religion, are ultimately more just, more peaceful and more successful. Nations that do not uphold these rights, sow the bitters seeds of instability and violence and extremism. So freedom of religion matters to our national security.”

Indeed, it does seem that Mr. Obama sees clearly here! Perhaps we will see him speaking forcefully against the persecution of Christians that is happening in the Middle East and Africa right now and we will see him meeting with members of the group’s being killed and using his meetings with the Muslim Brotherhood to call them to account for the violence that the are taking part in and promoting!

After all Mr. Obama makes that point:

“Nations that do not protect religious freedom”, he added, will not be successful: “No society can truly succeed unless it guarantees the rights of all of its peoples, including religious minorities.”

Mr. Obama also said:
“We will keep standing for religious freedom around the world. That includes, by the way, opposing blasphemy and defamation of religion measures, which are promoted sometimes as an expression of religion, but in fact, can all too often be used to suppress religious minorities.”

To this I say amen and amen!!!! Hopefully, he will inform the U.N that any rule that is aimed at preventing the blasphemy of any religion will not be approved by this country!

God works in amazing ways, and perhaps He truly has worked through Mr. Obama to make us realize what a wonderful privilege and opportunity we have in this country!!! As for the words spoken by Mr. Obama at the prayer breakfast, we will have to wait and see if they are truly an epiphany on his part and he believes them himself, or if they are just words intended to placate his detractors! After all words without action are nothing more than empty air!!
