Dear warrior sisters,
Don't give up. Trust in the Lord. He has a magnificent purpose for your life. Ask Him, and listen for His answers. Be an instrument for Him and all else will fall into its rightful place. 

With love, and gratitude for every breath I take, 
Julie 

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

  4. Julie, it has been so long since I have posted or even looked on my blog. Happy 3 Year Anniversary! You look wonderful and I hope you are feeling as wonderful as you sound! I was just looking back on your blog and you, like me, seemed to have so much to say during those first crazy cancer years, and now, it seems that as life has gone back to normal, we just don't write as often. I am hoping that this post finds you during a very happy holiday season!!! xoxo
