“My God who is and who abides forever ordered me to be born; He is at my side, helping me, strengthening His hand-maid in all things...”
Upon my waking. Upon my sleeping. Through all the day. My strength. My grace. My All.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Have mercy on me.
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
And beside my bed to keep my mind and heart staid:
Note from Elizabeth
Although I am determinedly declaring that I will not allow being a cancer patient to define me, I recognize that in truth, for the next several months, it will in many ways do just that, This blog, Fighting with the Wind, is where my medical updates, philosophical musings, humorous anecdotes, heart-warming stories, spiritual contemplations, angry rantings, and joyous celebrations can be found.
