Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

Is The Cancer Back?


My brother, who had a significant battle with cancer last year, had a routine Doctor's visit and guess what?

He found a New Lump in the Lymph Node.

The physician said that it didn't look good to have a new lump show itself, especially since it wasn't there the previous month. So, a PET scan was ordered.

Can you imagine the emotions waiting for those results........

Well - My brother received the results.

I will let Him tell you himself:


Faith Honored

(The Following is taken from Kevin's Blog - "Kevin-Beats-Cancer"

I believe. With all my heart and soul, I believe. I believe in God's plan for me.


These past days I have been preparing for the possible journey again through the valley of the devil. I have been very comfortable thinking that if I have to go there, I will willingly walk in faith....and walk....and walk...and walk until I can't walk any further. And then, He will carry me the rest of the way. Its His promise to me, and I believe Him.

I have been hoping for the best, while preparing for the worst, and no matter what the outcome, would be accepting of the future as perfect because its His plan. No matter what the outcome.

My day started early today, not able to sleep too well. In an odd but calm way, the day played out.....just waiting for my plan, His plan, to play out. Trying not to remember the events of the first battle, but having been there once, realistically understanding what the next one could be like. But also embracing the comfort that comes with fully trusting in His promise not to ever give me any more than I can handle.

I was quite ready for the news..........

My petscan test results just came in. I'm healthy. God must still have a need for me here. :)

Thanks for all your prayers, no doubt they were heard.

Now let's all go do good.
