2 Peter 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen

It has been exactly 2 years  since my diagnosis of cancer. Yes that "c" word. Why my life was spared, I continue to ask. I am thankful for His grace and mercy on my life. I am so undeserving. I try daily to make a difference. I fail miserably. I get up and do it again. I feel like Jonah. I am, such a whiner! He continues to use me. There are times daily I see it. Do I take each moment and run with it. No, I feel so unequipped. Then I remember He equips me with all I need. So then off I go!

I promised the Lord if He chose to allow me to live thru this awful disease I would be the witness for this disease He wanted. He provided a career that is amazing. I am having the greatest time! I am selling insurance to the senior market. Now you may ask what does that have to do with being a witness. Well, I have to inquire about the health of the older geeration. It makes them feel comfortable when I share what happened to me. We talk about everything by the time I leave. We all know I have a gift of gab!! I have the most wonderful clients! I don't think anyone has any better. Yes, I completely fall in love with each and every one.

“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” Lamentations 3:24

With all I have learned, worry is something that I have learned not to do! My hope is in Him. I have concerns, definitely. Worry used to be my middle name. I've learned I've wasted a lot of time! Time is precious. Each breath is a miracle. I love life. I love more deeply than I ever that I could. I appreciate all those who have come into my life since the cancer. I've watched some friends go and that is ok. I am concerned about other's health. I know what it is to look at death and wonder if you are going to see your children grow old, If I can give anyone advice it would be to take care of your body. There are others looking to you to take care of yourself. Soul mates, children, grandchildren, family, friends....You have a choice!
Since this has happened, I've known 3 children battle cancer. One lost the battle but was still victorious! She is in His glory now. Sweet Lauren was in my preschool class. The other 2 are still battling. Please pray for Justin and Courtney. I've had a friend Jeanette who was diagnosed after my last treatment and is now recovering from the chemotherapy.

Yes, I have gone to the Lord in prayer and asked why! Why the children?? The answer comes back, why not? He is using them!

Nothing is by accident. He allows things to happen. Maybe just so we will turn to Him.

Eighteen months cancer FREE!. Wow!! I don't take each breath for granted. I've grown that is for sure. He gave me a career that is absolutely unbelievable. I know people run from insurance agents but this is what God has chosen for me! So thankful He is using me. Thankful for family and friends.  Thankful for each day!
