Today I was changed!

HI friends,

It's late and I'm going to have to be brief. Mark is asleep beside me and I don't want to disturb his rest - but I am choosing to post a quick note because today I was changed. Let me share that God snapped my mind into alignment with HIs and I was able to let go of the whole hair thing. 7:15 am - with a mouth swollen and blistered, fresh off a miserable night's sleep and experiencing real discouragement. I climbed into the bed as Mark climbed out - opened my phone to glance at the blog and as I read a very special note from Dana Miller - snap - I got it. It's sad to loose your hair - but I haven't lost my life or this fight! I experienced a deliverance from dread in a moment of weakness that fueled my whole day. I got a new, short hair cut that I like - and Ashley will help me show you - but more importantly - I got in alignment with His priorities and my heart is light. I'm counting on an awesome night's rest because my dread has been broken. He is so good!

loving u,

Jan you are an inspiration!! You are so strong.

He keeps track of all our sorrows. He has collected all our tears in His bottle. He has recorded each one in His book. He is on our side! "For you have rescued me from death, you have kept my feet from slipping. So now I can walk in your presence, O God, in your life-giving light.

You bless me with you openness.

You are in a fight for your life but you are not alone. Out in front is our Almighty Father, beside you is your family and behind you are all your friends. We are all running with you screaming the VICTORY is Jan's. Death is swallowed up in victory and we have victory in Christ Jesus!!! Praise you Father, you know the begining from the end.

I pray Jan's voice will be heard from the mountain tops!! Use her God for Your glory.

Love you so much,
Lisa M

I am sooo glad HE helped you and made you realize that hair is the last thing you should worry about. Don't worry at all as a matter of fact because HE has got you all the way. HE won't let go of you, let you down or stray from the path HE has in mind for you. We love you, hair or no hair and are with you in thoughts and prayers :))

Jan, I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about your journey. You are such an inspiration! Your strength, courage, beauty, faith and love for the Lord shine through all your writings! I love it! Thank you for sharing your thoughts, your life, your journey with so many people!

By the way, the mix that April Michelle wrote about was something we used in the hospital with our kids with cancer. Works like a charm!

You continue in our prayers!
