Recognize These?  Be glad if you don't!  Ha.

Keep Smiling Through It All...It takes lots less muscle to smile than to frown.

The Nurses At Work
My apologies to all of my blogger friends.  (All of you) * ld like to give you an update on what isd going on here but with the "chemically induced nejuropathy pains I'm having - it is most difficult to tyupe because of teh pain I am experience in my fingers.  It's a taski top type without hitting un-wanted keys as you can plainly sdee.  Horrible!  ☺  so I'm smiling anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!  Thank God I can do as well as I can and the doc says it will go away in time.

Last Treatment

Three of God's Angels
(Frances Durham,. Frances Brannen, Ruthie Crockett)
who worked and prayed with me from start to finish
Through the process of healing from cancer.
Thank you girls!
This crown was mine to indicate that I was "King For A Day" after completing 6 months of chemo-therapy. 
All I could think of was that if we win any crowns in life - we will cast them all at the feet of Jesus
I know that it was His healing at work in my body which enabled me to pass through this
battle with cancer successfully.

This placard is displayed on the counter in the Treatment Room

About Me

My photo
Cleveland, TN, United States
I am Fred Alton Brannen, the son of Louis A. Brannen (deceased) and Bonnie Jones Brannen, Louis was an Ordained Bishop with the Church of God. Bonnie is an Ordained Licensed Minister and at 89 years of age is still actively engaged in speaking and singing engagements. I am married to the former Frances Hildreth. We celebrated 53 years of marriage this past June and we are the parents of 3, grand-parents of 10, and great-grandparents of 10. I pastored in Tennessee for 24 years and served the Church in some capacity in missions for over 23 years. I retired from full-time ministry in August of 2008 but remain active, speaking and singing and teaching whenever opportunity affords itself. In January of 2010 I received a letter of commendation for having been credentialed as a minister in the Church of God for 50 years! My family is very important to me. Our get togethers are always noisy affairs and most times will include family sing-alongs. The children love their Mom's cooking so we have the privilege of seeing them regularly! WE LOVE having them over.
