The Journey

What I thought would be a horrible battle 5 years ago, turned out to be a pleasant journey. At 39 I was diagnosed with breast cancer stage 3. The wind was knocked out of me! I had just gone through a horrible divorce and was thinking that the kids and I would be okay. The 1st thing I can say is I am so glad that I know God. He carried me through all of it. There was days that I really could feel him holding me and saying it will be OK. When they were doing test to prove the diagnosis I received a phone call that I needed to come home immediatly. They did not think that my father would make it through the night. I made it to my car and on the verge of colapse this song came on the radio about it will be well with my soul that the Lord would take care of it all. The Lord gave me strength and mindset to get through the fight for my life. I felt like I was a warrior at that time but also numb to the pain. He took the pain. He put me in the path of wonderful people that fought with me through prayers, love, friendship and being a servant to him by helping me. I am so thankful to everyone that has been put in my life. I am so thankful for all the adventures I have had with the people that he put in my life. I am so thankful for the opportunity to use this thing meant for evil to bring goodness to others by testifing to my Lord's love. Thank You Heavenly Father for showing me how to be more like you.
