A Testament of Faith

I  can remember it like it was yesterday..it will be three years this June that my world was in turmoil and God was about to open my eyes.  It was a hot day and I was helping my aunt with a yard sale.  An older caucasian male came up to me and I cant remember what he was looking for nor could I tell you what he looked like or his name.  All I remember is that I will forever remember that man because I felt as if God sent him to me on that very day to ensure me that what I was about to endure was going to be ok….the older man handed me an angel made out of a paper clip, beads and party ribbon…as he handed it to me I realized that it was my favorite color Pink…he laughed and said well how did I know that…Its a little angel to watch over you! That Monday my mommy was admitted into the hospital and later that week diagnosed with colon cancer.  But I can tell you how good God is out of all the hospital beds in Forsyth Hospital God placed my mother under the care of one of the ministers of the church I attended. I recognized her face but couldn’t remember where I knew her from until later that night..It was then God placed it on my heart to write her a letter which was way out of my comfort zone. ..I never had spoken to her nor did I know if she would recognized me but I wrote it anyway..I sat in the hospital waiting room and poured my heart out on paper and left the letter for her at the nurses station…the next morning she came it and prayed with my mother and I…something so simple made a world of difference and lifted my mothers spirits….she was cancer free for three years….That was no coincidence but God…that angel hangs from the signal in my car still to this day…the beads may have lost their color but It serves as a reminder to me to keep my faith!! Today I learned that my mothers cancer has resurfaced….at first I broke down because She is my world…there for her each and every time i needed her with out explanation…she has always been there unselfishly putting my sisters and I above all and herself last…i cried, and cried, and cried…but never questioned God because I know he did it before and IM GOING TO WATCH HIM DO IT AGAIN! Its hard being the oldest…everyone looks to you to be the rock or shoulder to lean on in hard times…I PRAY FOR STRENGTH, COURAGE. Life is too short to dwell on petty things over the course of these last three years God is showing me that little by little, I can care less if I have a car to drive, a house to live in, or a place to lay my head down at night as long as my family is healthy and happy I AM CONTENT WITH MY LIFE!!!! Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6) I LOVE YOU MOMMY AND EVERYTHING WILL BE OK///I KNOW IT WILL BECAUSE WE SERVE A GOD THAT CAN FIX ALL THINGS!!!!
