Happy July 4th. I am so grateful to all those who have served so that we may be free. What a gift!
I am also grateful for you and can’t thank you all enough for your love and support.
Delta did give me the opportunity to upgrade, however there is no seat available that reclines all the way. I still believe that God will still do something, perhaps someone will have mercy and trade, perhaps three seats in a row will be available or God will give me supernatural strength to sit. It is all for His glory.
My excitement rises as we are days away from leaving. I feel strong. Part of it has to do with forgoing chemo, as least for now. The horrible reaction to the last chemo shot in my butt was enough to scare me, perhaps for a lifetime. When I return, I will try a new non invasive therapy called a Rife frequency generator. It has been said that each disease or condition has its own electromagnetic frequency. The theory is that finding a frequency and producing an impulse of the same frequency will kill or disable diseased cells.
I have learned so much about alternative therapies and how we are each different. I am grateful that you have supported my journey. You took away the huge financial burden and I’m thriving because of you.
In fact, I am feeling so well that I was able to race in my last triathlon two weeks ago. My training up until that point included a handful of swims, two bike rides and several 2-4 mile runs. Even after all the years of training, I wasn’t sure if I could do it. I was so emotional as I drove down to the race. I knew in my heart that it was my last. Peter and a dear friend Lynn came to cheer me on which was a blessing. They called the race my gateway triathlon. Gateway to new opportunities, new ways to bless people and use my gifts for the kingdom.
When I got out of the car, I was greeted by wonderful friends and triathletes, all of whom poured loved into me. The hugs were so rich.
At the check in table, I burst into tears. Steve and Sherri Hare gave me the number #1. It was more than I could ask or imagine. I have been a past Vermont Sun Champion and they said I will always be a champion. Those words went deep and if the truth be told we all champions in one way or another.
When the gun went off and I jumped in for the swim, God put a bubble of protection around me. Not one person hit me, it was unbelievable. On the bike , I was worried that my pubic bone might break or hurt. To my surprise nothing hurt, I felt strong and soon I was actually racing the men. That warrior inside me just can’t be stopped. On the run, my legs felt fantastic. I ran with a smile on my face the entire time. I placed 6th overall women. That is a miracle.
On July 12th, I will race in Denmark for God’s Glory. Thank you for making my dreams possible.
May the King of Kings bless you beyond measure!
All my love and grateful thanks.
