God is for me

I must say being diagnosed with breast cancer was a shock to say the least.
I had enjoyed good health most of my adult life. I was not afraid of dying for the Christian death has no sting. I thought of it as a massive inconvenience until treatment started then the most barbaric ride of my life.
I found hope in my little book on healing.
And I was overwhelmed with the generosity and love shown to me by Heidi and the ladies who are responsible for the 1000 meals program. Not to mention my almost daily calls and messages from Kylie Smith from the pastoral team.
Today I started radiation and on the way there I received a message from Francoise wishing me well and telling me she was praying for me.
She had no idea where I was going or what I was doing, she had bought a meal over one night and that was the only time I had seen her but I was overwhelmed by the fact that God is for me and even comes to Radiation treatment with me and uses his servants to let me know.

Rememberance Day

I was diagnosed with breast cancer on Remembrance Day of 2005. After
getting over the initial shock of the diagnosis it was then time to
commence the battle.
I looked up and wrote down in a little journal every scripture I could
find on healing, health and life vs death although I never allowed my
mind to wander towards the latter.
I was blessed to have great support from my husband and we still had our
2 adult children living at home at the time so meals and housework were
well taken care of.
Our children grew up without having either of their grandmother’s around
as they both died very young, and I remember deciding very early on
during my treatment that our future grandchildren would not be robbed of
knowing their nanny.
My treatment lasted over 18 months and during that time I made a
decision each day to choose life and declare the wonderful works of the
The biggest thing I can say to people on that journey today is to stay
positive, casting down imaginations and just get on with living.
