Reflections – #24

Welcome to my second series of blogs. I hope you have had the opportunity to read my first series of blogs. I’m in no way comparing my life of tribulations with Job, but in the last 6 months, I have experienced a change in my body, been diagnosed with cancer, started and completed a series of chemo pills and radiation treatments, was laid off from my job of 31 years, lost my best friend of 50 plus years to cancer, was separated from my “work family”, and I’m scheduled to have a major surgery in a couple of days. I can truly say, “Through it all, God has been good to me”. When I started this journey, I was sincere in giving all my burdens to God.  I cannot explain the peace I experienced. Psalm 55:22, Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; he shall never permit the righteous to be moved.  There comes a time in your life when you just have to TRUST GOD.  Know that He is who He says He is.  I had another MRI on October 2nd, the mass had decreased in size. (Thank God) I started preparing for surgery, by making frozen dishes, looking up crockpot recipes, buying sleepwear, etc.  My doctor called me in for a consultation the day before surgery. Rick drove me to my doctor’s appointment.  The doctor’s office and hospital are approximately 70 miles for Wynnewood. The MRI showed the mass had decreased, but there was another problem, probably related to the radiation treatment.  We told the doctor to do what he thought was best and to do whatever he needed to do to remove ALL of the cancerous mass. Rick and I had a brief conversation and were able to laugh as we walked to the car.  “Nobody BUT GOD” Tomorrow is my surgery.
