Hi, I’m Rebecca.
Over five years ago, I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Oxford, England for four months and originally designed this blog to help me organize and share my thoughts, feelings, and adventures while I was out of the country. But when I got back to the States, I just couldn’t stop writing. I decided to continue jotting down the things I learn and feel during these weeks that seem to fly by as if they had wings.
In August 2014, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and went through two surgeries and a radioactive iodine treatment. In November of that same year, I was told to have “no detectable cancer.” Then in February 2016, doctors discovered small spots of thyroid cancer in my lungs, which they continue to monitor today.
I have experienced lows of anxiety, pain, and confusion and highs of peace beyond understanding and deep purpose in Christ. The Lord has been my Rock and Sustainer:
The Lord is my strength and shield.
I trust him with all my heart.
He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.
I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.

A bump in the road
Thank you, Dr. Kent Brantly
I’d rather be holy than happy
All my deserts are rivers of joy
If everyone had cancer
What to do and not do when someone is scary sick
