Daniel 3:17-18

Daniel 3:17-18 "If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up."

And now for an update...

Here is what I posted to Facebook yesterday. Apparently it took me another day to remember I also had a cancer blog. That's good news, right?

"I just finished my penultimate check up with my medical oncologist. I couldn't count how many appointments I've had over the last several years during my cancer adventure, but I know how many I have left. One! We are talking five years cancer free (that's NED, as in "no evidence of disease") come this December. What an awesome Christmas present. Of course, there's the final CT scan, blood tests, and yet another colonoscopy between now and then, but those don't count. See you in six months, doc!"

My love and thoughts to my cancer buddies.

Because of Him

Happy Easter to all of my friends and loved ones.

Jesus Christ was my strength through cancer.
He is the first one I asked for help.
Because of Him I received excellent medical care.
Because of Him I endured all of my treatment.
Because of Him I met amazing people.
Because of Him I survived cancer.
Because of Him I am happy.

Wishing you all the best this Easter season. Easter means a lot to me.

Father and Son

I ran the Salt Lake City Half Marathon this last Saturday with my son, Michael. We had a great time. It was definitely a neat experience. Even in the rain.

We signed up to run the race with the Huntsman Hometown Heros. Each runner in the program agrees to raise money for cancer research in order to get to the starting line on race day. The money goes to the Huntsman Cancer Institute where I was treated for my cancer. They are a research hospital that is part of the University of Utah hospital system.

After the race we were so excited we looked up more half marathons to run over the summer. For me, it was nice to be out running again. For my son, it was his first race ever, at any distance. I am very proud of him, and honored that he would run this race with me as we gave back to the cancer community.

On the back of my race number bib, I wrote the names of friends and loved ones who have had cancer. I included all of my cancer blogging buddies as well. A few, like me, are still here. (Hi, Fiona and Ang.)

I wanted to remember and pay tribute to some of the finest people I know.

Each Life That Touches Ours for Good

Each life that touches ours for good
Reflects thine own great mercy, Lord;
Thou sendest blessings from above
Thru words and deeds of those who love.

What greater gift dost thou bestow
What greater goodness can we know
Than Christlike friends, whose gentle ways
Strengthen our faith, enrich our days.

When such a friend from us departs,
We hold forever in our hearts
A sweet and hallowed memory,
Bringing us nearer, Lord, to thee.

For worthy friends whose lives proclaim
Devotion to the Savior's name,
Who bless our days with peace and love,
We praise thy goodness, Lord, above.
- Karen Lynn Davidson

It's Lego Time

If your name is Mason or Nolan and your mom has been using the word cyberknife lately, then this is for you.

No, I didn't build this one, but I'll bet you two could. A Lego cyberknife is definitely cool.

We think your mom is pretty cool too.

Sending smiles and prayers for your whole family,
Steve and Carla

Pomp and Circumstance

Westminster College, Class of 2012

The graduate and his awesome family
Steven Curtis Chamberlin
Bachelor of Science
Computer Science
Summa Cum Laude

On June 2, 2012 I graduated from Westminster College, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Yes, sir. I finally figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up.

I'm the one in the black gown
On the very left of the stage about to receive my diploma
Saying goodbye to one of my professors
Afterwards with my parents
And my sister
And my favorite niece and her husband
And my best friend, Mark
Not to forget the really cool bag pipes
Thank you to all who supported me along the way!
