Can I Have This Dance?
My husband and I love to dance. We have danced since we dated. Of course it was disco then…..and it is disco now when we get a chance to dance! Thankfully, most weddings do include oldies! We actually won contests when we were teens. Our sons may doubt that a bit.
But we even like to dance in the kitchen. A good Pandora station can do wonders for a couple. If anyone saw us they might laugh, my goodness…we laugh at ourselves! But it is so much fun. Such a sweet thing between us.
I had struggled for several years with how much the Father really loved me. How could Jesus Christ love me without condition? I always thought that God only loved me when I obeyed Him.

The removal of a skin cancer is not a pleasant task.
A year ago the 19th of this month I had to have a basal cell carcinoma removed. I went in today to have my 1 year cancer check. I know that this type of skin cancer is the best to have…it doesn’t even own it’s own ribbon, but none the less…it had to be removed. I don’t have t go back for a year, and I am so thankful. I know others don’t always get that news.
Webster’s defines cancer as: 1.) a serious disease caused by cells that are not normal and that can spread to one or many parts of the body 2.)something bad or dangerous that causes other bad things to happen 3.) A zodiac sign
Interesting. The first two definitions require the removal of the cancer in some way. It cannot stay present in your body or anywhere because it causes bad things to happen and it can spread. So, mine had to be cut out. Read the rest of this entry »
