Always look people in the eye and smile,
don’t look away at their disability, their wheelchair,
their bald or covered head, look them in the eye,
it may be just the courage they need that day.
God has made us each in his own image. In the stripping away of my outer appearance, I found the true significance of a rebuilt life in Christ. From the ground up. “You alone are the Lord, You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you. Nehemiah 9:6 So in the treatment process, the Lord was beginning to open up my heart and let the inner healing take place as he rebuilt my physical body. And my mind, which is where the battlefield is for all of us! I am so thankful for the time I had during this season, even as bad as I felt, I got to sit at the feet of Jesus for days at a time. Removed from all other distractions, just He and I. It was a special time. And it changed me. For the better. Thank you, Lord Jesus!
Here are some snapshots (which I never thought I would share or even care to look at again) but it is so important for those of you out there going through this to know, take pictures, you will probably want them later. For me, it is encouraging to see what God did.

In almost every picture do you notice the black band under my hats/scarves? It is a must have for chemo patients. A cotton black turban, well Abby and I called it a beret, but it’s soft and easy to wash. I wore it all the time and by itself when just at home.
Tip: get a scarf hanger for your new collection! If you have a friend going through chemo, this would be a great gift.
