Blogging and Sharing

As you can see I have not been the most faithful of bloggers. Yesterday afternoon I spent some time reading the blogs of some wonderful gals and I learned that you don't always need something deeply profound to say, you simply need to share what is on your heart and mind at the moment. That's easy enough to do, there's almost always something on my mind! I'm going to try to do better at sharing what's going on in my life. I'll start with something I've hesitated to share. I'm not sharing now because I want pity or sympathy, but because, if you're reading this, I'd love to ask you to pray for me....for patience, for strength, for wisdom, and to learn the lessons God has for me in all this.

My life has been a whirlwind these last few months. I was diagnosed with cancer back in August, and there's something about that one word alone that sends you spiraling. But, I've learned that it's not the end of life and that doesn't mean that you give up hope, or living. I'm scheduled for surgery after the first of the year, and am praying that the surgery will take care of the problem. I know that God is totally in control, and this journey is a learning and growing process for me, it's certainly taught me patience.

Judy, you know you are in my prayers daily. Your faith is strong and God will take care of you. You inspire me to lean on my faith more than I do.
I have had so much to deal with in the past two years that at times, I have had a hard time coping. I have learned that when God leads you to something, He will also lead you through it.
Cancer is a scary word and I am praying that your surgery will be done by a surgeon but guided by God Himself.
Thinking of you always.......

Hi Judy- I know this has been a hard time for you- you are so right when you say that God is in control. I have been a breast cancer for 10 years now- I hace the exact same theory that you do- you do what you can as far as keeping your dr.s apointment, tests etc. and leave the rest to God. I will keep you on my thoughts and prayers.
On a lighter note- you are the 2nd place winner of my blog giveaway!
