Welcome back…

Hi everyone…it has been a LONG time since I blogged…9 months!  Many things have happened since the last time I blogged back in June 2013.  First, I want to thank God for all of His promises fulfilled in our family.  He has been so good to us even when I thought He wasn’t.  Second, Aryanna has been healed of cancer and is doing great.  She started school in August 2013 as a PK-4 student at a Christian private school in which I also started working to stay close to her.  Ashley continues with college and started working with me in September of 2013.  Joe Jr. started college and still looking for a job.  Hubby continues to pastor at the church, involved with our non-profit “Hope In Joy”, and also is an Aflac agent. As you can see from the picture below, Aryanna’s hair is growing out so beautifully.  She has remained faithful in telling others about how God has healed her body of cancer. I hope to blog regularly now…thank you for all that continue to support me by reading the blog.

1Praise the Lord, my soul;    all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul,     and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins     and heals all your diseases…Psalm 103:1-3

No longer afraid…

It is 1:40am…and I am pondering in my heart all the wonderful blessings that been lived in this past year!  I am no longer afraid of the unknown because I know that God has already been there..He is the same yesterday, today and forever.  He is my strength, my peace and my comfort.  Nothing can separate me from His UNCONDITIONAL love!  He has shown His glory through scriptures, encouraging words, prayers, songs, signs, and different human vessels that were willing to be obedient to Him.  Healing came in all different forms…a hug, a kiss, a text, a phone call, a bible verse, an anointed song, a timely message, a smile, a child, a loss, a gain, a painting, a gift, a donation, a flower, a raindrop, a rainbow…so many things.

Aryanna’s promise of healing has been received in our  hearts and we believe it is coming to pass.  She is victorious and a conqueror in the name of JESUS CHRIST!!!

For God has NOT given me a spirit of fear BUT of power, love and a sound mind…2 Timothy 1:7

Life Hurts…

Matthew5_42

When we do not understand life and all of its turmoil, we start asking questions that may never have an answer. Since our daughter Aryanna was diagnosed with cancer last March 2012, we have met so many families traveling the same journey.  We immediately connect, a bond…something in common.  We are CONQUERING cancer together.  We […]

A New Chapter

It has been a busy for Ary Joy and the Rodriguez family. Ary Joy had an echo-cardiogram done on Monday to check her heart’s performance.   They had to check because one of the chemo medication causes some sort of distress to the heart but we know that Ary’s heart is strong and healthy.  She also […]

Being Bald…

Ary Joy has had moments of being sad due to the loss of her hair due to the chemotherapy.   I started researching and came across a few organizations that assist with children losing hair due to different medical reasons. The major turn off was the lengthy process and required information to get approval for […]

Happy New Year!!!

I know…I know…I am like a few days late…sorry I love New Year’s…it is a symbol of new beginnings.  It doesn’t matter where you are…it gives us a sense of pressing that “reset” button and starting all over again.  This kind of change or transformation can happen at any time of the year but when […]

I am human…

There is a quote that says, “Instead of using, ‘I’m human’ as an excuse to walk in the flesh, try using ‘I’m saved’ as a reason to walk in the Spirit.” – How much truth does this quote carry? I have used the “I’m only human” card numerous times and think it has been a […]
