Today is the Australian party..finally! We've been studying Australia for quite a while and we always have a party at the end of the study. A MOMYS friend suggested I make Pavlova for a unique Australian dessert. Here's the final product! I can't wait to try it out. (although, I have already tasted little bits as I was putting it together. So nummy!)

Lung Cancer

I feel numb. I can't think clearly. I don't want to think. I don't want to go through this ....again.
Still many questions unanswered..questions I don't want to ask..and answers I don't want to face.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus, vast, unmeasured,

boundless, free!

Rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me!

Underneath me,

all around me, is the current of Thy love

Leading onward, leading homeward to Thy

glorious rest above!

O the deep, deep love of Jesus, spread His praise from shore

to shore!

How He loveth, ever loveth, changeth never, nevermore!

How He watches

o'er His loved ones, died to call them all His own;

How for them He intercedeth,

watcheth o'er them from the throne!

O the deep, deep love of Jesus, 'tis a heav'n

of heav'ns to me

And it lifts me up to glory, for it lifts me up to


~~~~Oh Lord, I pray, speak directly to my Daddy's heart! Go to him in his dreams Lord Jesus..speak to him and let him know You are there with open arms. I pray he will turn to You. Amen.~~~~

Lord your works are so wonderful. Your mighty hand holds high the heavens, holds back the sea..and releases the winds upon the earth. We turn and turn from you..and deny you even exist, yet your love is so deep..you chastise..and then forgive..over and over..your arms are always wide open as soon as we repent of our pride and release our bitter hearts to your healing hands.

Update on Dad

MRI shows a small mass in the lower side in the back of his head. A small tumor surrounded by fluid. (as far as I know, anyway) Surgery to remove it this Thursday morning. He sounds great! And he's feeling good.

When it rains..

When it rains..'it pours'.

My Daddy is in the hospital. ( I know..I'm 32 years old..but he's still my 'daddy'.)
A cat scan shows a mass in the back of his head. MRI was done today and we're waiting on the results. I probably won't find out until tomorrow..since I'm 2 time zones away.

It has only been 3 years since mom lost her battle with cancer.

One year since Gramma S, dad's mom, passed away.

Two weeks since Grampa K, mom's dad, passed away.

They're planning to remove the mass later this week..Thursday.

I'm feeling kinda numb..
