Laura Story – Blessings

I’m contemplating this song today.
It has been another hard day.  I’m just not feeling like myself, at all.  
I’m adjusting to a new medication, one that messes with hormones 
and causes any rogue cancer cells to commit suicide.  
Today it is causing hot flashes and and a down mood and head.
I did have a very “normal” feeling day yesterday, which was day 2 on the medication.  That was really nice.
I had one person describe this medication as “puberty in reverse.”  
Fun times.

My heart is also heavy for Japan.
The images are just unreal and hard to imagine that it is reality.
Such suffering is so hard to see, and I am reminded, as the song says below,
that “This is not our home.”

Songs like this help give me perspective, and lift my heart and lift my head.

We pray for blessings
We pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
All the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love is way too much to give us lesser things

‘Cause what if your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom
Your voice to hear
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
All the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we’d have faith to believe

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know that pain reminds this heart
That this is not our home

What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise

    thanks, jeana! Your sweet comments are so appreciated.

    Damsel–it is good ole’ Tamoxifen. It is taken for estrogen receptor positive breast cancer. 6 years is so, so great! When I reach six, I will take a sigh of relief…past that 5 year is a big deal and things look up statistically after that! I will be starting a second blog soon about dealing with cancer nutritionally, both preventing and treating. I would love to have you as a reader!

    May I ask what the name of the medication is? 6 years since diagnosis now but still worrying about those rogues.

    Aw, I am praying for a quick adjustment to the medication and for you to feel more like yourself everyday.
