About Me

My name is Pam. I am 61 years old. I am the blessed mother of 7 children (6 girls and 1 boy) (4 which are adopted daughters) and, yes, the baby is the boy. They range in age from 23 to 41. I have been married to my best friend for 43 years. We have 14 grandchildren.

In 2003 I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, Stage 3, Aggressive, Difuse, Large B Cell Cancer. I was not overwhelmed by the diagnosis because I KNEW something was wrong with me. The Holy Spirit was nudging me to find out what. I have lived a very healthy life without drugs, alcohol, smoking and I married my high school sweetheart. RATHER when the diagnosis came after THREE YEARS of searching my comment was: Finally, now we know what it is.

I went through a strong 6-month chemotherapy and as with most cancer patients lost all my hair, and went from a size 12 down to a skinny size 4.

I knew then and know now that God has an appointed day for my departure from this earth. So I suppose you would call me the eternal optimist since either way I win! If I stay here I have more time to touch other lives for Jesus and if I die, Oh Hallelujah what a day that will be!

One way I dealt with my cancer was to make fun of it. I told people when I was bald, Hey, what's the problem? I never have a bad hair day! Or, Who needs makeup when you don't have any eyebrows or eyelashes? And, finally, I said, Who wouldn't love to avoid the tasks of shaving under their arms and legs? No hair-No shaving! My final comment used to leave people chuckling as I told them I did not have a cast to boast of my injury, but I'd gladly give them a marker and they could sign my shiny bald head! Cancer is tough but God is greater!

Actually, the above sounds awesome but in reality I went into a depression a year after my cancer. You see I am a people person. I worked in a law firm with 119 attorneys and their staff. We took up 10 floors of the Sun Trust Building and when everything stopped I was suddenly alone.

Looking Forward To

Today 8 years after my cancer, I still have many side-effects. I have been in the hospital 8 times in 2011. 1 time for a month. But, I am doing well now and I hope to find a nitch for me that will make a difference in the world. And I am looking forward to being a part of the church God has for me.

Please pray that the powers and principalities of this world be rebuked in the Name of Jesus for my health to be strong. I am a cancer survivor since 2004 with a cancer that cannot be cured only controlled. I have outlived the predictions of the doctors and desire to continue to be a light in the darkness of the world. I was hospitalized 9 times in 2011 but had many opportunities to share Christ with medical professionals there. I desire to continue to be a light in a dark world. Pray for me.

Please pray for my grandson Peyton and his mother Rebecca-my daughter. Peyton is the firstborn and nearly 19 years of age. His mother has put him out of their home because she does not approve of his girlfriend. I have met this loving and giving young woman (20) who does not smoke, drink or use drugs. She is respectful to her parents and as far as I can see the problem is not with the girlfriend but rather with my daughter allowing her son to spread his wings and fly. The two kids are Ch..

Isaiah 43:18-19

I have been married a long time
43 years to be exact. I believe one of the most powerful things we can do for our spouse is to pray for them. Prayer changes things in ways you could never imagine. So in saying this I want to share with you "one" of the prayers I prayed for my husband. I do my best to pray for him each and every day..

Where God Guides He Provides  |  (10/10/2011)

On October 9, 2011 I had a wonderful brother in the Lord come and do some handiwork at my home. What a blessing he was and how brightly the Lord was shining in his life. When he finished the work I had asked him to do I had a question for him. The question was: "Do you know of anyone who has work or a job to offer?" He asked me some questions about who needed the work. I told him my 19 year old grandson had been pounding the stree..
