Turning things over to Others

I'm still feeling fine! Oh, I'm not like I was before the Chemo but I feel like I'm getting through each day without having to change to much.

I get tired easier and have to rest a lot more but I'm still able to keep up with my housework, work, plus keep up my hour walk on the treadmill each morning and stain my front porch. I am still able to do the things I love to do. At the end of the day I'm tired so my hubby tells me to lay down. He has taken over where I just can't right now. To be honest, I have to just give up any control that I had and just let him serve me. Maybe that is what God is trying to teach me?

I'm not all alone, He has given me a helpmate to help me. As you can see, I'm still trying to figure all of this out. I may never know! One thing I do know! I have a God that is with me each and everyday, I have a husband that has stepped up to the plate. My husband hasn't left me to face all of this alone, he doesn't run off and do his own thing nor has he left me when I needed someone the most. I also have a family that loves me, a Mom, children, brother's & sister's that call almost every day to see how I'm doing. A church family that has sent more cards to me in the last few months then I have received my whole life. Friends that I haven't talked to in a while that have heard about my cancer have emailed, called or sent cards. I'm not alone in all of this nor do I feel insecure with myself anymore. I'm loved for who I am not for what I look like. God has shown me how important I am and that I mean something to the people that are in my life right now. All Glory to God above!!

the Word of God says we're to love in deed and truth, not just in word and tongue. i'm glad there are so many who're putting this truth into action in your life right now. we can always find blessings, even in the midst of tough situations. stay encouraged! peace & blessings.
