  1. We are all the lepers

    I was reading Leviticus 14:25-29, and even though it's about bringing former lepers back into the community, I noticed that it's sort of a foreshadowing about how Jesus cleanses us of our sins. Because the Priest sacrifices a lamb for the person, and cleanses the former leper as a sin offering in his place. He applies "The Blood Of The Lamb" onto the person's right ear, right thumb, and right big toe. I realized that those are symbolic of the three big ways that I "miss the mark" and...
  2. The Moral Benefits Of Wisdom:

    Proverbs 2 - Written by King Solomon to his son. 1 My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2 turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding— 3 indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, 4 and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, 5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and...
  3. There aren't words to describe my love and my fear

    I am scared and distraught. There is an war orphan in Uganda named Gloria who I have been sending money to for many years, so that she can live in an orphanage and go to school. She is about my biological daughter's age. She calls me Mama, and to me, she is my daughter, and my biological daughter thinks of her as a sister. We all love each other very much. Because of the stupid Covid lockdowns, the president of Uganda has shut down all the schools in the country, and so all the orphans have...
  4. Lesson from a cancer patient (Me):

    You can't be a sissy punk about life and health. Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die. Hold those loved ones close. If you're scared of them dying, hold them even closer. I'd rather die a happy, glorious death from being close to loved ones, than all alone and isolated, die in fear.
  5. Portable Washing Machines

    If you live in an apartment that doesn't have a washer/dryer inside, I'm going to show you what I use. I really like it. It's the Kuppet portable washing machine. It came from Amazon. It's under 200 dollars, and you hook it up to your kitchen sink. It's very large. Only a few inches shorter than a kitchen counter, and its large capacity fits about 1/2 of a normal load in it to wash. It's so light (maybe 30 pounds) that you can store it somewhere during the week, and then drag it out on wash...
  6. About today's Mandalorian episode

    If you've already seen the finale of season 2, click on the spoiler.
  7. Washing Laundry During the Coin Shortage

    For those of you who rely on coin-op laundry during the coin shortage, and can't get quarters, I'm going to teach you one of the most efficient and powerful ways to wash clothes in the bathtub with the least effort. Fill the tub a little under 1/4 of the way up with dirty clothes. I find this equals about six to eight outfits plus all undergarments. Add detergent evenly over the top. If you like you can add fabric softener to make the clothes smell good. You don't want to overdo it with...
  8. Hippy Bathday To You...

    There is no such thing as a coincidence. Happy Birthday is an almost perfect anagram for "Hippy Bath Day". Today is my once yearly bath. But since I'm a hippie and as such, care about the environment, I will save water by bathing in patchouli oil, and save precious water to bathe in until next year
  9. To everything there is a season....

    What a weird feeling. Tomorrow I'm turning forty. Hopefully I'm nearing the end of my cancer journey. Meanwhile I've had two friends die of cancer while I've been in treatment for it. The most recent I just found out about this evening. So I'm happy to be alive, but I'm sad they died, and I wonder, why them and not me? Fighting for life as people's hands slip from mine into eternity. It's so painful, and makes me see life and death differently. More thankful for each heartbeat, desiring...
  10. In the new wave nineteen-eighties, it might have well been the pioneer days for me.

    Although I was born in 1980, I had a very rural childhood. The propane man would come every 3 months and if we ran out before then, we couldn't cook at all. If I climbed on top of the propane tank and pretended it was a horse, I would get the beating of my life from any adult present. Same went if I pounded it with my hands to hear the cool liquidy echo. We pumped all our own water into a giant tank. We had to continually pump during droughts, because if the well ran dry, we would be out of...
  11. My Wonderful Daughter is Sweet Sixteen Today.

    I woke up at 5 a.m. That's approximately when she was born 16 years ago, today. Right now she is camping at the zoo with her troop. They got to spend the evening walking around the back areas of the zoo after hours and see how the animals are cared for. That's a pretty cool sweet 16 party. I can't wait to see her today and shower her with love and gifts. She has been so good to me this past year, and has been by my side almost 24/7. I wish I could do more for her. I wish I could give her...
  12. We are okay

    Tonight we were in an accident. My daughter was checked out at the hospital, but everyone is okay. A truck ran a red light and plowed into us, hitting her door. My poor daughter had to get a CT scan and an Xray tonight. Has a little black eye, but she's doing great. They were threatening to put her in a neck brace for 2 weeks, and she was terrified all the kids would make fun of her. Dr said in the end she didn't need it. She was so happy! To make her feel better, at the hospital I...
  13. Going to the Naturopath

    I am hoping that today's Doctor appointment will be another way out of this nightmare. I don't ever want another drop of toxic sludge injected into my chest. I don't want to lie still while inflicting myself with Hiroshima-style radiation burns. It keeps me up every night. I hardly sleep anymore. The side effects are worse than the cancer, because before, I was in extreme pain, but I got around town on the bus and was very self sufficient. Now, I can't even walk down the block without...
  14. I just got the lifetime membership!

    I'm so happy I did. It was only $10, and now the site is ad free. I was having so much trouble with overstimulation from all the videos and ads to the point that it made this site not fun anymore. I'm so happy. It's like the silence of the forest at night, except for my eyes.
  15. No more.

    My family will be heartbroken, and my daughter will wrongly think I'm giving up on her, but I've decided to quit chemo. I cannot do it anymore. It makes me so sick and weak. I fear it will kill me faster than any cancer. I want to at least try the natural stuff for one year and see how I progress. I'm only stage 1 or 2 so I'm willing to do that. I just can't wither away. I've only been on Chemo since August, and already I look 5-10 years older, I have heart, kidney, and liver problems...
