a place of abundance

"we went through fire and through water, yet You brought us out into a place of abundance" Psalm 66:12b

About August 28, 2010

Thanks for visiting my blog. My husband, Darrin, has encouraged me to start a blog for as long as I can remember. It took battling cancer and writing on a CaringBridge website http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/vivianmabuni   to get me started. I am now in remission and ready to start on a new adventure in the blogging world. I have three kids in three schools (elementary, intermediate and high school) and spend most of my time living in my well-stocked car. The theme “A Place of Abundance” comes from a verse that God gave to me as I started in on my cancer journey. Life is full of challenges. God uses and allows fire and water to change, purify, reveal and sometimes warm or replenish us. He is faithful to bring us through and to lead us to abundance. This abundant life Jesus offers (John 10:10) is not one that is pain-free and smooth, but it is rich, rewarding, messy and best lived out with people. So journey with me. I’d love to hear your thoughts as I share mine.

I have recently joined an incredible group of women writers. We are the Redbud Writers Guild. With the encouragement and support of these amazing women, I hope to finish a book proposal and eventually write a book for cancer patients based off the caringbridge blog. Please stay tuned as this new chapter unfolds and check out the website and the books written by the other Redbud writers.

    Hi, Viv!
    Glad to connect with you (at least in this way!) We’ve moved to South Pasadena (new job for Mike at USC – ugh, i know!?), so we’re farther; but I hope to stay in touch via your blog and beyond 🙂 Rejoicing with you about NED!
    blessings, ann

    I met you a few years ago at a women’s retreat for OCF. Maybe the hankie from California rings a bell?!?
    That year my daughter came for one day “just to listen”. She was feeling sad and angry that “all” her friends were pregnant or had babies except her. While she was listening to you she realized that she had been carrying so much bitterness and jealousy and decided the load was just to heavy and began to forgive and let go. The following year we missed the retreat because it fell on the same date as her baby shower. She’s a different person (and an awesome mommy) because of what God did through you. Thank you. And thank you for your blog. It gives me strength and hope and encouragement.
