I can't begin to tell you how MANY things seem to be happening right now.  I am VERY overwhelmed with all of it, and yet I know that the Lord is still on His throne, sees the beginning from the end, and knows every detail (both large and small) in between.  So I continue to trust in Him and continue to wait on Him and continue to look to Him for my comfort and direction.

First of all, I FINALLY have the date for the biopsy.  It is to be next Mon morning at 8:00 am...It seems almost impossible to wait ANOTHER whole week, and yet it is what it is.  I should have the results by the following Thursday which means no doubt next week will be hard.  I continue to MAINLY rest in Him with the whole thing, but I will confess that there are those moments when my eyes waver off of Him and I find myself fearful and apprehensive.  I must keep praying and trusting, and not leave any room for the enemy to work.  I will soo appreciate your continued prayers with this whole experience. 

Then, we are prayerfully considering buying a mobile home in a beautiful senior citizens park.  There is MUCH involved.  I am not going to go into details, but it is a REALLY big step for us.  At 55 my daughter feels we are WAY too young for this park yet, but I have assured her we are of legal age, haha.   If circumstances were different we probably wouldn't be considering this yet, and yet, AGAIN, it is what it is.  The park is BEAUTIFUL and surrounds a lake and is so peaceful, and I can soo easily picture us being very happy there.  The mobile home is 1900 square feet, so while I will have to get rid of things (my home for the last 25 years is around 2600 sq. feet) it is still big enough for my family to gather together when we can.  This was NOT easy to find ~ one that was big enough and yet still affordable.   It would require a "little" bit of work, and yet not enough to be too expensive or a burden to get done.  All of this happening WHILE I wait with the possibility of dealing with breast cancer is somewhat overwhelming, and yet the timing AGAIN, is what it is.  I know the Lord knows all of these details so I will just wait on Him.  Have I mentioned I DON'T wait well?  haha  But the most important thing is feeling sure this is God's will for us right now.  So AGAIN, I covet your prayers on this issue, and I will keep you posted as to what and where He leads us. 

Now onto to some "lighter" subjects, haha...My Melly is officially FINALLY & COMPLETELY done with grad school and all of her student teaching and is putting out her resume's as I type this!!  I am soo proud of her.  She has worked hard and LONG and I am praying she finds just the right spot.  She is hoping for KG - the 3rd grade, but of course will take anything available.  The school and budget cuts have hit New Mexico now so it will be ALOT more difficult to get a job then it was last year at this time.  I can't bear for her to have worked this hard and long only to not find a job, but I do PRAISE GOD that the money for her is not the issue as much as it is just her hearts desire.  She would make SUCH a wonderful teacher, so I pray He works out all of the details.  She student taught a 2nd grade this entire last semester and her last day was a couple of weeks ago and the faculty and the students both gave her big parties.  She said she got soo many wonderful things that it took her 4 trips to get it all to the car.  They also had a cake made in the shape of a chalk board.  I stole a few of her pics off of facebook to show you....




And finally, I had SUCH a wonderful Mother's Day week-end and I am hoping you all did as well.  I had LONG visits, flowers, a movie, a new nightie, perfume, candy, a fruit edible arrangement (soo yummy) cards, wonderful dinners but most of all the best kids ever to celebrate with.  My hubby and I took my mom & dad to the Candlelight Pavilion and saw Thoroughly Modern Millie on Sat. night.  What a good time we had.  The food was wonderful and the play made you want to dance and sing along.   Love you soo much mom!

I am sorry this was soo long.  There is so much on my mind.  I am just taking a day at a time and sometimes a moment at a time.  I am so grateful that I have the Lord to lean on, such wonderful family and friends that  love me, and ALL OF YOU as well.   Whatever would I do without it all?

A quick side note....Melody just called and she has her first interview tomorrow at 9 am for the third grade!  Please keep this in prayer....  = )


  1. I think the appropriate name for your post should have been "it is what it is." It was definitely the theme! I KNOW all will go well for you next week. The cake for Mel was soooo cute and I loved the wreath. How sad you could not be there in person to see it all. How wonderful we have the internet and you can still get a feel for it all.

  2. I liked Di's name for the post's title. I'm so glad for the internet as well to get to see some of Mel's gifts. What fun and HOW EXCITING!!

    Loved seeing your potential "new home" today. A total stun.

    Of course I'll be constantly praying on all of this for you.

  3. Hi Debbie,
    It does always seem that everything happens at once. You have alot on your plate right now, but I'm sure next week it will all sort out in a positive way, until then I will continue keeping you in my prayers.
    New home...very exciting but a big decision. I am looking forward to hearing more about it.
    Until then, stay positive.

  4. Oh Debbie,

    I can't imagine how hard the waiting must be. I think I would be going crazy. I am sending lots of positive energy your way and keeping you in my prayers. You do have so much going on right now. A new home? That is exciting and also quite a big and emotional decision too I am sure. Can't wait to hear more about your decision to move. Stay strong. Big hugs.

  5. Hi Debbie! Prayers are coming your way! I love stopping by so please take care of you! Am praying for your housing situation too. Always remember you are the Lord's child!

    Hugs Anne

  6. Praying for all these adjustments and transitions. Hey, my husband is 56!, but we are still raising two children, 14 and 4, so I don't think they will let us in a senior community. It does sound peaceful.
    Blessings through this season,

  7. Debbie, you do have SO many things weighing heavy on your heart. You have been, and will continue to be in my prayers. The waiting is hard, but just try to keep busy.

  8. Still praying. Thank you for the update because I was wondering if you found out a date yet.

    Congrats to you daughter too!

  9. Debbie,

    The whole time I was with Dad and he would receive news..good or bad...he was always say "It is what it is." I am lifting you up and praying Peace over all these things you are dealing with and know the Lord will provide the day at a time my friend!

    Congrats to your sweet daughter! What an accomplishment! She is just beautiful ~ like her momma! I know you are sooo very proud!

    Bless you and sending big hugs your way! Prayers going up constantly!

    Love you

  10. You know I've been praying for you Debbie. The waiting is the hardest part. I remember with my Mom I couldn't believe how long they waited to biopsy her and then everything else just seemed like they took their sweet time to schedule appts when we were all dying to just find out. I hope all the prayers from your family, friends and bloggers will help you this week and next. Stay strong Debbie and know that we are all thinking of you!

    A new house is very exciting and a great big decision I can see why you have so much on your mind! On a lake though? Sounds like heaven!

    Good for Mel, that is such exciting news, I'll be praying for her as well.


  11. Hugs to you Debbie, Been lifting you up and glad you shared when you have the biopsy-so know I'll be standing in the gap for you. A senior park-wow, you are even younger than me-good for you. I'll be holding up all the details for that as well.
    Have a blessed week.
    Hugs, Noreen

  12. Keeping you in prayers sister Debbie. Be strong in the Lord's mighty power!-Eph.6:10. That was the first Scripture He shared with me. Little did I know, I would need to be reminded because of the trials I would have to go through and still will face and this is a great reminder that with whatever comes our way, we battle not with our strength and might but by His!

    Congratulations to your daughter and wow! She's having an interview already. Praying she would get the job that would bless her!

    May the Lord bless you richly sister Debbie, protect you, heal you and guide you. Take care!

  13. I'm praying for you -- for the wait, the procedures, the results. May God surround you with His amazing peace and comfort. So exciting about Mel!

  14. Praying for health, strength, peace and, yes, patience (which we all need for sure).

    Prov. 3: 5-6

  15. Glad you got a laugh this morning! Just back from another treatment (only two more to go)! Wanted to stop by and say hello...hope it is a great Wednesday in California - my nurse today was leaving for San Diego tonight and all kinds of excited about it, too. 'Cept she was headed to an oncology conference?!?!? Oh well - just getting to the other side of the country would be fun!! Maybe some day, I'll see it for myself:)

    Have a great day, friend. Hugs - Jennifer

  16. Hope the interview goes well for your daughter. And you know I'm praying for you!!!

  17. Dear Sweet Friend,

    I'm sorry I am just learning of your trial you are going through. As Loren said, "One day at a time." Yes, that is what I and we have learned to do (and I know in the flesh sometimes that is hard to do). Keep looking "Up" to Him and let Him be your main focus as I know you are. He will guide every step of the way as He already knows the outcome.

    My pray is for complete and miraculous healing of whatever might have been there...that the Divine Healer will make it vanish completely by the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

    Oh Lord, I ask that you bless Debbie with a peace that goes way beyond her understanding...that you bless her with so much grace each and every minute of every day that she is filled with joy despite the biopsy coming up...that your tender mercies are covering her every step of the way and that she be ever mindful at all times of who you really are and what supernatural things you can do in Jesus precious name I pray. Amen.

    I love you my friend and you along with your husband's prayers for my beloved and I have meant more to me than words can describe. I thank you for that and please know that I am standing with you in deep fervent prayer.

    Your daughter is absolutely beautiful and I pray God's hand of blessing upon her in all ways. May she get the job that He wants for her in Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    {{{Big Hugs}}}

  18. Hi Debbie,

    I'm in prayer for you. I know that God has you in embrace. Take care of yourself.
