Going good ...
"This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice in be glad in it".
"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord"
"It is good to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to Your Name, O Most High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night".
Good scriptures to start the day with. You know how I love those sky shots with interesting patterns and colors. It just seems that the camera (or maybe the camera operator) doesn't capture the awesomeness of the moment. This little independent 'whisp' of a cloud caught my eye this particular day. I hope today that God can capture for you a special moment that will show you how much you are worth to Him and how improtant you are to those around you and how you play a part in the bigger picture. You and I are just like that tiny 'whisp' of a cloud, the sky would not have been the same without out it.
Symptoms are at bay so far and were are doing all we know to keep it that way. I have increased the juicing (double) and I also am taking a new med for 5 days around the IV chemo which is designed to prevent inflammation. As for the juicing, I'll do about 2.5 lbs. of carrots, 1/2 a head of broccoli and 1 red delicious apple. Of course, I scrub the vegis really well first and let them sit in ice water a bit. Broccoli is tough enough to drink cold, don't try it warm. The carrots and the apple offer a good flavor cover. If you have never tried juicing, carrots are delicious by themselves, some like to add an apple for the flavor and it also thins out the juice. Wash and peel the apple first - the wax they use to keep the apple's shiny remains on the skin even after scrubbing with hot soapy water. It usually works out to about 16 oz. of liquid. I believe it is good to do regardless of your present health.
Something else I learned today, our cats will eat puppy chow just as quickly as kitten chow. We ran out of cat food and so I gave the kitties some of Kenny's food and they gobbled it down. I like to see them eat good. And yes, I will be getting them some kitty food for soon.
It is raining over here in Central - on and off fairly hard. My yard has already started to hold water in some spots. We could use it, I guess. It will freshen up things up around here.
I am going to get busy around the house doing something productive. I again hope you have a great day in Jesus Name. GW
