My need to come back
Sunday, February 09, 2014
As some of you know, on Jan. 7 my beloved DH was diagnosed with stage 4 lung/liver cancer. Our God had/has a plan and He received Chet back into His heavenly fold on Jan. 18. I feel Chet's presence everyday. He will always be my Special Angel.
This has been a difficult journey, but I know if I continue to take one day at a time with the grace of God, I will have the strength and courage to continue.
On my Spark page I have a part of the Serenity prayer. I would like to share the whole prayer with you as I feel comfort in reading it in its entirety.
God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can and the Wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardship as a pathway to peach. Taking as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it. Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen
A Spark friend sent me the "Foot prints in the Sand" poem. Looking back on these past days, I can only say He has carried me more than me walking alone.
I want to thank all who have continued their support. I can feel the love in each written word. I am trying to get some daily structure in my life, so I will be Sparking again. Working on staying healthy and finding a positive attitude along the way. (HUGS) Barb
For those of you following my niece's battle with ovarian cancer: her scans and blood work continue to look good. Your prayers and good thoughts are truly helping with this...
