Day 8!

There has been a lot of talk about day 7 of chemotherapy.  We have been told that it is a low point or most people who undergo chemotherapy. That being said, we have relied on God to allow this day to come and pass just like the others, as Bri has done very well.  I am happy to share that this has been the case.  Thanks to all of you who have been standing shoulder to shoulder with us as God continues to be faithful to His word!  I recall at one point, while Bri was still in the Cheyenne hospital, her becoming very nervous about day 7.  We talked about what day 7 meant to God.  A day of rest!  What a blessing!

Genesis 2:2-3 AMP 2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 3 And God blessed (spoke good of) the seventh day, set it apart as His own, and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all His work which He had created and done.

We agreed to just stand on God's word that it would be a day of rest and a Holy day!

The girls and I left Monday afternoon to come home and are looking forward to getting back to Denver on Friday night.  Of course, the girls really miss their mama.  They are also looking forward to hanging out with their grandma and great-grandma, getting spoiled rotten and staying up all hours of the night.  Anzley, our two-year old, was all about her mama today.  She was texting her on the toy phone, pretending to talk to her.  Her Clifford stuffed dog even sent a text to Bri while we were in the grocery store!

I will close out by saying thank you to all of you who are praying and supporting Bri and our family as we go through this.  I cannot stress enough how big our God really is and the fingerprint He has all over this entire journey.  Bri and I have had several conversations on why we ended up in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  God placed us here to grow our faith in Him, this has become clear.  I cannot wait for the end result of Him turning this all to good and allowing us to be a blessing to many many people.  I have learned in bible training and at our church that what the enemy steals, God restores in even greater ways!  Bri's health, our family time, trying to rattle our faith; it is not happening.  It will all be restored!  We claim Victory over all of this in Jesus' mighty name!  God bless you!

Psalm 103:1-5 NKJV
                   1Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
3Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
4Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.


  1. Your faith and testimonies are already blessing people! Thank you for unabashedly sharing your family's love along with your dependence on God and his promises! He will never fail and He loves you all beyond measure!

  2. God bless you all!
