Facing Cancer
Letter to the Editor

Let’s talk about it! Do you believe in that “still small voice”? I have a feeling you do believe.One year ago I found out I had breast cancer. I was struggling with the loss of my husband from his own battle with cancer. I even began to question God. On the road to see a doctor, I heard that “still and small voice”. (I am not talking about voices in my head.) The voice spoke to me “trust me”. So I have trusted God and that has carried me through this last year. That voice has carried me through some of the most difficult times.When we bind ourselves together in prayer, awesome things happen in our life. I thank God for His people because He works through His people. We felt Mason’s prayers. My prayer is that someone will read this and be comforted that we don’t walk alone. Writing this and giving thanks to God is my therapy. God doesn’t always deliver us from adversity. He does give us the key to travel through these trials.So celebrate with me and give thanks for life. God gave me more time with my kids and grandkids. I can still see my husband’s eyes in my children and grandchildren. Cancer is no respecter of person.I will not fear cancer. But I do respect it. Get check-ups.Surely, God has given you a purpose. Stay with his course. Don’t give up. He will carry you through with that “still small voice”.
