  1. I love you kim. This post is making me sit here and cry. I praise God for your honesty, and I cry to God for your healing! I hate that you are in pain and that this is such a hard time. You guys are amazing, I don’t know how you are so graceful and funny and beautiful through this whole thing but you are!

    Here for you.

  2. I’m your mom. I speak with you often. I see you often. I believe I know you well. All this to say, I am always surprised by the ugly truth of this wicked monster that plagues your life and even more, the raw effects of the weapons used to battle this savage brute which, because it must, attacks the good and the bad. It has already been said but so worth repeating that you, my darling girl, are pure grace under fire. You gather your strength and plow through your days. Never do I see you down for the count. You struggle. Yes, you struggle but you do not stop moving forward. You smile often. You even laugh. Your joy is so… there! Your testimony shouts out to the world. You suffer greatly but your drive for life outweighs the horror you endure and combined with your Faith, you are unstoppable. With all cancer brings to destroy, I am amazed by your ability to make it look easy. But I am not surprised because I remember, this IS you. You were created able to fight this fight and you will win. I grieve the “blows” this season has brought, The deeply personal, painful disappointments. I grieve but I am grateful because you still stand. We still have our girl! My prayers do not stop for you, your health, your future and for your broken heart. I believe all things work for our good. I believe God is working all things for our good. I trust Him and I believe. Good will come. Good has come. I love you. I could keep writing forever, I love you so much. I am so grateful for your FAITH. Dad and I gave you back to God when you were an infant. We gave each of our children back to God in dedication and we KNOW you are in HIS hand and there is no better place. We rest in our faith that God is with you through it all. May today be one of the better ones for you! Love, Mom

  3. Kim – I continue to pray for you. Your demonstration of faith through your words is an amazing testimony to all who read about your journey. Our God, who created the universe, can move mountains and He can certainly stop cancer and heal our bodies. Our hope is in the Lord!
    Isaiah 40:29-31
    29 He gives strength to the weary
    and increases the power of the weak.
    30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
    31 but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
    They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.

  4. He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
    He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
    To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
    To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.
    When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
    When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
    When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
    Our Father’s full giving is only begun.
    Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
    Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
    Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
    The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.
    His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
    His power no boundary known unto men;
    For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
    He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.
