I am re-gearing this blog to be more about our effort at beating Penny's cancer
Some people are afraid to discuss the bad (along with the good) while going through adversity and that isn't the purpose of this Blog. While families face this type of adversity, life continues and some people who would rather have their privacy can occasionally get put off by a post. Given that no one is perfect despite some trying to give the impression that everything is hunky dory, we know that everything isn't (that chaos and the enemy are always pursing us). Given how much adversity has been seen by this family, we feel people will learn more from our honesty than leaving out things that just may provide insight to how to deal with said adversity.
Given our journey has a purpose, we are no longer afraid of our being seen (warts and all) by those who are there for us or may learn from our experiences... as we have come to a point in our lives that we believe honesty is the best policy (and some people just can't handle that). Be as it may, our faith in God sustains us, and in the end.... we are the ones who will meet our maker on our own accord.... so at this point... we choose to put behind that which only makes things harder on us.
I will be showing Penny how to interact with blogger/BlogSpot (she is new to interacting with a template based website) so she will hopefully post from time to time if she wants to. I've been posting up to now as this was a way for me to share with people I know... what we are dealing with (a central location for information outside of Facebook).
We've eliminated "Anonymous" comments as trolls are usually behind those type of comments (as we are avoiding needless angst). Penny and I both have people who are not our fans that have accumulated over time and given the open nature of the Internet... look for any opportunity to stir the pot. They will be unable to do so (at least on this blog site).
We've added multiple cancer blogs to the list of blogs we follow (on the right column beside our blog posts) so people interested in what is involved with Cancer Treatment will have multiple options to choose from for information. I have read every one of them, and there is a wealth of information to be gleaned from them). We recommend each one of them (and please give them the occasional "comment" of support so they know they are reaching people.
We hope that people do appreciate what we are writing about, and will chime up now and then and let us know how we are doing. In the interim, let me leave you with these thoughts:
"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear My voice behind you saying, 'This is the way; walk in it.'" Isaiah 30:21
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." Deuteronomy 6:5
