Double Exposure 2

There is a story in the Bible found in Acts 3 I have been reading lately and giving some thought to. I wanted to share it with you and some of the things that have stood out to me. Peter and John went to the Temple one afternoon to take part in the three o’clock prayer service. As they approached the Temple, a man lame from birth was being carried in. Each day he was put beside the Temple gate,…

Snowy Mountains 2

During yesterday’s appointment I was given the names of the medications I will be taking during my chemo. Irinotecan, Fluorouracil, Leucovorin, Bevacizumab. Say those 5 times fast, I dare you.
