A day you always will remember, "You have cancer" Yes, April 13th... that is the day. It is a day when you hearts stops for a moment and then it starts beating again and you think, okay. Tackle one obstacle at a time. That is my new adventure, taking each test, MRI, CT, Bone Scan, Biopsy, Kidney surgery, chemo treatment at a time.
I have had been shown much love, support and kindness along this journey already. I have been overwhelmed and have literally felt the countless prayers, fasting, and love shown on my behalf.
I have had a very calm perspective and attitude and know that comes from my strong believe in our Heavenly Father's plan for each of us in this mortal world. I have a very firm belief that miracles happen daily. I also believe that God is in charge of our journey and he knows the best in all outcomes, whatever they may be. I know I need to learn much.
I have kept a song close to my heart for while. My church choir sang it a few times in WA and I have not been able to hear it since without tears rolling down my face and having an overwhelming love for my Savior, Jesus Christ. Because at the end of the day. That is what is all about. Our Savior lives!!! and because of that we can endure whatever may come our way.
Google Sally DeFord music "Because He Lives" and you can listen. Here are a few of my favorite lines. Because He lives, I can bear whatever burden may be mine I am encircled in the arms of love divine because He lives Because He lives There is no task so great that I cannot endure I bear no heartache that His tender mercy cannot cure Because He lives Because He lives I will rejoice in Christ and glorify His name And with the willing voice of gratitude proclaim My Savior lives! Because He lives He will banish every shadow of my pain Every sorrow will be swallowed up in Him For in His hand is healing for the weary soul This I know, because He lives
