Where To Find Comfort

Burgandy PanseyThis was a very bad day for me.  There was good news and bad news, Im sure you have all had days like that.  Those of you who follow me know that I have incurable Renal Cell Cancer, kidney cancer moved to my lungs.  I have been in treatment for 3 months.  Three hard months.!  I had a three-month scan to see the progress if any from the drug I am taking.  The Name is Votrient.  I have been on the highest possible dose and have had numerous side effects.  They  have literally been life changing side effects.  I was eager to see the doctor to find the results.  I wanted a miracle I guess.  Well I had good news.  The cancer in my lungs of which I have three, have shrunk in size.  The cancer in one lymph node had shrunk, and the other affected lymph node had stayed the same.  They found no cancer that had traveled.  All good ! I asked can I come down on this horrible medicine?  The doctor said no.  He said if I hadn’t taken this medicine three months ago the cancer would be throughout my whole body. It is very aggressive.  I asked if it would shrink more, he said no.  I was blessed that it had been knocked back like it was. I said will I ever be able to taste food again? He said no.  Will I ever quit being so exhausted? He said no.  I asked about numerous other symptoms and he said no.  This is your new life.  That was the bad news.  I know I have to accept what it is and Praise the Lord that I am alive.  I am grateful to the Lord, I love Him no matter what, but I have to say it isn’t easy.  Then I read the above scripture and was filled with comfort and peace.  He will be there with me , what more can I ask.  I think it just took me 3 months to really get it.  But I feel comforted by my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
