One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Another reason for no time to craft

Well, you will NOT believe this...I have cancer too!  Isn't that just crazy?  But I believe mine will be easier to remove...we will know more after three days of scans coming up this week.  Basically what happened was back in August I thought I was having a kidney stone while on vacation...so we went to the hospital and they did a CT scan, while doing the scan for the kidney, they picked up a lower portion of my lung and saw a small mass on it.  The ER doctor told me to check it out further...which I did.  I had another scan and it showed 1/2 inch nodule that was not calcified.  I had a needle biopsy this last week and it came back as a cancerous tumor...now we think the good news is that this type of tumor can be surgically removed.  After more testing we will learn if this is the only one (praying!) and be able to proceed.  Between Dina and me we are keeping the family very stressed!  Dina has it worse though, because of the lesion on her bone eroding the bone and causing the pain.  She has one more CT scan on Monday and will then start her chemo infusion on Friday.

I just wanted to let you all know.  We spent this Friday night and Saturday at a Women of Faith conference and it was just what we needed...to be lifted up with his Grace and Mercy, to sing words of praise and to remember that He is our comforter, our strength and our Heavenly Father who pours out His love for us.

God bless you all.
