I love to sing the Bible verses in chorus, it is a good way to memorize the Word of God
and to encourage the heart. This is a great day to do just that as I am still not myself.
I do not know if it is the Chemo or the auto-immune diseases, but I am very fatigued
and I just don't feel right.
I had a doctors appointment this past Thursday and thought my chemotherapy would
be ending this month. However, when we went over my medications she was pleased
that I had no adverse reactions to the medicine and told me that now she was going
to increase the dosage. I will be doubling the Methotrexate every two weeks... this was
the first week I have done just that.
I will admit that I was very discouraged because this also means that I must keep
myself isolated from crowds and anyone who might be sick, as my immune system
is even more depressed when I am on these medications. I miss doing the seemingly
simple things in life... from grocery shopping to going to church and everything in
So... today I woke up and this chorus came to my mind; "This is the day, This is the day, that the Lord has made, that the Lord has made. I will rejoice, I will rejoice and
be glad in it, and be glad in it. This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice
and be glad in it. This is the day, this is the day that the Lord has made!"
So... today I will rejoice because I am here to enjoy ALL the things that God has given me
and ALL the things He has done for me. I will not wallow in self-pity because my life is not
perfect. I will choose to rejoice in this day God has given me!
