GOD

PICTURE ME with better days ahead...

The adage a picture is worth a thousand words pretty much sums up and captured who I am and at what point am I now in my life’s journey...

  • My left eye is healing well a month after my corrective 4th-time eye surgery...

  • Loving you still makes my heart skip a beat—so I am hooked-up again with a heart event monitor...(3more weeks to go...)

  • I wear a heart solitaire instead of a wedding band...

  • I rarely wear lipstick...

  • I can’t widely smile because of my still lingering dental paresthesia...(on liquid and soft-food diet going a year now...)

  • I love all animals…more so cats, hence my hair-clip and necklace...

  • I gained precious pounds…(now at 99lbs…)

  • I am wearing a Canadian brand tank-top given by a Canadian Earth Angel...but I haven’t been to Canada yet...)

  • I am wearing comfy, casual clothes because I am not working; but hoping to be able to go back to the workforce again...(put the bad memories behind, learn and pick up the good despite my fork in life and live my new normal...)

  • The letters “RH” on the building behind me represents as R for my first name initial and H is for my Hope that endures. 

  • I wear prayer charm bracelets as an outward sign of my faith and devotion to GOD and St. Peregrine...(Patron Saint of cancer patients)

I am looking towards the heavens as I ponder in the LORD’s goodness, more blessings to come and His continued merciful grace and miracles in my life.

Faithfully Yours: Seasons change but GOD’s LOVE Remains...

Right here, right now is where GOD is calling you to find joy. Right here, right now, in the midst of the journey...

Now, just months shy away from when my breast cancer journey begun two years ago, and also almost a year now after my life-changing dental paresthesia that still lingers, today also marks a year after my failed left eye surgery for which I had a corrective surgery done just 2 weeks ago.

Through all these life challenges, with knees wobbling and heart sobbing, one thing that kept me going then, now and always...is GOD’S Grace and though my life’s seasons keep on changing, HIS Merciful Love Remains...and for this, I am and will always be eternally grateful.

LORD help me live from day to day, In such a humble sort of way, To give a smile, help lift a load, For those I meet along life's road, And when I come to my journey's end, My life I have not lived in vain, If one dear soul can smile and say, "I'm glad I met her on life's way.

by GOD’s GRACE one day at a time...

This time last year, I was scheduled for my breast cancer surgery and the uncertainties of what to come shook me to my heart’s core…I must admit, my faith faltered then…

Though a year have past when my cancer journey begun, these past few months come with new challenges: I had 5 eye surgeries and on one fateful July day — I had an oral surgery causing me to have dental parethesia, a nerve injury. My severely bruised left jaw made my face so swollen, numb, toothless and having difficulty swallowing, A-fib and shortness of breath, I ended up 3 times at the hospital. I am still unable to eat properly; I’ve lost 11 precious pounds; more than what I’ve lost after my mastectomy. I am so skinny, my skinny jeans looks baggy on me.

But just like during every storm in my life, with even just a flicker of hope, courage and a trembling heart, I am still here by GOD’S GRACE one day at a time.

…though every day of my life seems like a battle, but as I put on the full armor of GOD, I hope and pray to find work again and move to another place…

Do not be ashamed of what your survival looks like. Do what you have to do. You are clawing yourself out of the ache, cutting the pain from the bone. It is never going to be pretty, but I promise — it will always be worth it. ~ The Strength in our Scars by Bianca Sparacino

Thank You GOD for allowing me to see another day. I aim not to live for myself but to live for YOU and my loved ones. Please guide me, give me strength and help me to do better than yesterday…
