CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I have two friend that each contracted melanoma in their late 30’s. 24 years later cancer had returned. In the case of Judy, it was lung cancer on her left side. She has been battling it and other issues for the past 6 years. Last November, Judy and her husband hosted a large gathering at their house to play Shanghai Rummy. It lasted longer than perhaps it should and the next day found Judy in the hospital for several day with pneumonitis in her healthy right lung and that issue continues to persist. One of the things that impressed me the most about her hospital stay was that she prayed more about who God would place in her path so she could be His vessel for the Gospel. Judy is a fighter – she has to be – and the following are excepts from a letter she wrote a few weeks ago.
Happy Spring, family and friends! My winter quarantine, cold and gray, is just making the beauty of Spring an even greater joy to me. Walking around seeing little green leaves push up through barren mulch and flowers appear out of lifeless looking limbs just thrills me – creation (and Spring in particular) truly does reflect our Creator who is at His core the Redeemer and Restorer!
I will never look at nor take springtime for granted again. Judy paints a beautiful picture of how God can renew even me just as all of His creation
And good news!… He continues to choose to restore my little body – scans a couple weeks ago showed no evidence of cancer and my lungs are slowly healing! We are so grateful. I do not need any oxygen support when sitting or piddling around, but need a little for activity and definitely need when exercising. Hopefully that need will continue to diminish, however I am thankful that my “jet pack” oxygen frees me to live life normally.
My quarantine will end Easter weekend – so excited! However, I will continue to somewhat minimize health risks, as there is still inflammation in my compromised lungs (unfortunately, the pneumonitis scarred my healthy lung that had not been impaired by the three thoracotomies). But all that has come through a sovereign and good God’s hands – so I will rest in that reality. As C.S. Lewis says, “Heaven, once attained, will work backwards and turn even agony into glory.” My little trials are all being redeemed – as are yours.
Her “little trial”!!! And I get upset if I get stuck in traffic for a few minutes! Really dwell a few minutes on that C.S. Lewis quote.
Our children and grandchildren are coming for Easter weekend, so it will be a most joyful coming out party!!!
You are at the heart of my story with your prayers, love, and encouragement! I have been so richly blessed in every way!
I want to have the faith and peace that God has given Judy so I end with Phil 4:6-7. In it Paul does not pray that we experience a life of ease, prosperity, wellness, or comfort. His prayer is that we experience God’s peace on this temporary earthly journey.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
