Thank you all, so much.

Your prayers lift me up. I know that I'm held before God.

Just came from yoga; a classmate took me. I hadn't been since before I moved to California. I'm in my body, in a good way. I feel strong.

And I'm carrying the icon of Julian, at today's Eucharist.

I'm up and down six times a day. But I know that there is grace.

It's ok to go down, my friend.

Kirstin --

I graduated from CDSP just 5 years ago. It is a great community. --and it's bigger than the folks that are there presently. --and because of that community, folks who don't even know you are praying for you--whispering your name aloud all around the communion. At least, I know I am!

I am 11 years the other side of a stage III cancer diagnosis--lymph nodes involved, chemo, radiation....all pretty sucky stuff. But every day now, I wake, and laugh--knowing I am already living a resurrection life.

Please know that you will continue in my prayers--and I hope and pray that the peace which passes all understanding will be upon you now and always
--many blessings, --margaret watson

Margaret, I don't know what to say but thank you. This is beautiful, and very, very helpful.

"living a resurrection life"

Alleluia, amen.

Kirstin, that's known as the roller coaster effect. ;o)

Grace is the thing.

Have not checked in here in a long time, though it does not seem like so very long. But a world ago, because it was before your diagnosis and all this scary stuff. I am praying extra hard (will I catch up!?) and will email you...)

Thank you--and yes you will catch up. You already have.
