News that changes your life

October 9, 2012

To My Dear Friends,

Some days can change the way you look at life, today was one of those days for me.
Scott and I sat in front of a doctor while he explained that I need a surgery to remove a tumor believed to be cancer from my left lung.

WOW, not even 3 weeks of intensive exams and suspicions had prepared us to terrifying thoughts that the C word brings to your head but as the fear tried to take control of my mind, the sweetest voice whispered to my heart the exceptional promise that was given to me 7 years ago “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD,“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.

Sixteen years ago when I faced life with a child at age 18 I received in my heart the only thing that through good and bad days has stayed with me, the love of Jesus Christ. Today, once again I confirmed that everything in this world can come and go but only one thing is truth. Nothing could have got me through this day but the complete understanding that no matter what the future brings God is with me every step of the way.

My body might be struggling but my spirit is stronger than ever because every time that life has turned dark on me I have had an amazing light to keep me strong. I ask that you pray for the doctors that will be helping me through this process so that God gives them wisdom. Pray for my children, husband, my mom and all my family that is hurting for this so they can stay calm and confident that God will be with me always. Also, pray for me so that I never lose faith and that I can enjoy my children and family during my recovery time.

Thanks for your love and support always,
