Welcome to my blog...

Green trees, cool water, a gentle breeze...the perfect place to sit at the feet of the Master and learn. Jesus taught so often on the shoreline, and He's still speaking today.

This is where I share the lessons He teaches me, often during the time I spend on the shores of a local lake. I don't have all the answers...and some days I don't have any. But I go here when I need to draw near to Him in a tangible way. Come with me...

My One Word for 2019 - Delight

A few months ago, I launched my new website, Tonicampbell.org. Since then, all my new blogs have been posted there. Here's the introduction to my latest...

I remember it so clearly. As 2017 came to a close, I anticipated the year ahead.

"Good riddance 2017, bring on the new year - it's got to be better!"

In March of 2017 I had been diagnosed with Marginal Zone Lymphoma resulting in 12 radiation treatments.

A month later, doctors felt the treatment had not been 100% successful. Another biopsy of the area confirmed there were still cancer cells present. After consultations with other radiation oncologists who specialized in this type of cancer, a determination was made to administer another 20 radiation treatments.

By the last treatment I was tired and sore from reddened skin. It was the week of Thanksgiving and I did my best to get through the holidays.

So by New Year's Eve, I was more than done with the current year and looked forward to the new one. Surely it could only be an improvement over my current circumstances.

It only took three weeks to discover that wasn't the case.

Please join me at tonicampbell.org to read about my one word for 2019 and to share yours. I love reading people's words and why they chose them!
