Well, it was another crummy weekend. I felt fine on Friday, but on Saturday, I got a really sharp pain that travelled up my forearm to the tip of my middle finger. Then on Sunday, I got severe body aches and felt like I could barely move. I stayed home from work yesterday because I felt so awful. I talked to my oncologist today and she said that the body aches can be associated with the new drug I got last Thursday. They're not sure why I had the shooting pain, but I think it was related to the chemo. I have felt really weak since Saturday, so I went in to have my blood drawn today. My counts are okay, but I was running a slight fever, so they think I may be fighting a virus. Hopefully, I'll get enough rest this week that I will feel better this weekend.
I joined a website called "Blogging for Books" that gives away free books to bloggers that will read the books and post a review on their blog, so occasionally, I will be posting a review of a book that I have read. This is my first review, so here goes:
Secrets of the Vine for Women is a simple book. Simple to read and simple to understand. Based on John 15, Darlene Marie Wilkinson compares God to a vinedresser (the gardener in a vineyard). When we are living with sin in our lives, God lovingly disciplines us, like a vinedresser cares for each vine. When we are showing spiritual fruit, God prunes us, like a vinedresser prunes each vine. The purpose of the pruning is so that we can produce more spiritual fruit and live in abundance. Simple but powerful truth.
