Epstein-Barr Virus

I know I have written about the book medical medium before, and I have been reading about the Epstein Barr Virus. It was not only similar to my illness and the problems I have faced, but it has so much information that I have never heard about. Click here for more information.a4a4

Galatians 1:16-17

Galatians 1:16-17 “For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”

More vacation pictures!

“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.” – Ben Okri

Romans 5:2-5 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

More pictures from vacation!

Live it well

Love this song! ❤ ❤ ❤

Psalm 16:11 “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

Mark 9:23 And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.”

Healing

A year ago my health was horrible. I was in pain, and exhausted all the time. I had difficulty, and pain when I would lay down, sit, stand, and walk. It has almost been a year since my life changed completely. I don’t even feel like the same person. My recovery, and healing didn’t happen over night. Thinking about how I used to feel makes all the milestones, and achievements in my recovery feel amazing.

Being able to go on vacation was amazing accomplishment. I feel like I was able to let go that part of my life behind for good. When I was on vacation I didn’t think of myself as sick. I am now starting to think of myself as healed.

1 John 5:14 “This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

Deuteronomy 4:29 “But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Home

I got back from Florida earlier this week. I had a great vacation, it was a much needed trip. I felt really good the whole time. I was able to walk a lot everyday, and I didn’t have much pain. I’m still feeling pretty good, which is amazing! I will post more pictures of my trip soon. 🙂
