Over the next 10 days, I will be facing two major events which many parents face eventually. In three days, my son (my only child), will graduate from college. Actually, he graduated in January but he has decided to participate in commencement. Almost exactly one week later, he will be escorting me down the aisle at his wedding. Five months ago, he wondered if I would be there or even if I'd still be alive for I was in ICU battling for my life. It is a sobering thought.
The events of the past two and a half years are heavy on my mind right now. While I have seen the oncologist three times this past year, I have not had a mammogram since June 2009. I will be having one on June 11th.
Sometimes the thoughts of the possibility of recurrence along with wondering if my brain is going to "explode" again can rear their ugly heads. To try to pretend they are not there does no good. Neither does ignoring them for that doesn't make them go away.
So how do I deal with it? I bring it before the Father. I let my friends know I am in trouble so they can come up alongside me with their prayers and their shoulders to lean on or cry on, whichever is needed at the moment. I remember all the things God has brought me through in the past and that He has me in the palm of His hand and I remember that no matter what... God is stronger!
Standing alonside you in prayer, and with a shoulder to lean on or cry on, and with arms open to hug you, with a song to rejoice and laugh with you; and arms raised in praise and thankfulness to our loving Father. blest to be praying with you through the upcoming whirlwind of weeks...
The song u posted with this blog, means sooooooo much to me. my eyes fill with tears as i listen to the words. K, im sending hugs and prayers YOUR way dear one.&
Life on the Battlefield. What a great lesson we can learn through the life of King David. It's obvious that you have the heart of a great and powerful King.
Wonder where you got that from?
Be strong in the Lord! Continually praise Him! Keep your focus on Him! Thank Him for what he has already done and for what He is going to do! Cheryl
