About Me

I'm a 20s something God loving and God fearing man who was diagnosed with Lymphoma at the age of 24.

I underwent 6 chemotherapy treatments of R-CHOP at Johns Hopkins hospital in Baltimore for roughly 5 months.  Well, thanks to God, lots of prayer, and some good 'ol modern medicine, the treatments worked and I have been in remission since November of 2012.

I love Jesus and am so thankful for Him!
I'm a kinesthetic learner.
I love Hugs & Massages.
I have a big heart.
I'm a "hopeless romantic".
I love my family.
I've learned from the past, I'm learning in the present, and I will continue to grow into the future.

I thought I knew what love was, and then God came into my life and showed me what true love is, it's His love, and now I am following His guidance to love as He loves us...

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. LOVE NEVER FAILS!" - 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

...this blog is the beginnings of me writing my story, a place to share my thoughts, to share the amazing love of God, and the GREAT hope I've found in Jesus.  It started out as "A HOPEFUL Romantic Surviving the "BIG C" which consisted of sharing my battle with cancer as well as my testimony and thoughts. It now continues as: "Relentlessly Pursued : Unconditionally Loved".

Hi there Matt! I was actually just reading through a few of your posts and had quick question about your blog. I was hoping you could email me back when you get the chance, thanks.

PS. I love this, "I've learned from the past, I'm learning in the present, and I will continue to grow in the future."
