A Colonoscopy... Me????

Today is the day before my scheduled Colonoscopy.

I dread this but I feel like it should be done! I want to keep myself as healthy as I can for my family and myself. :)

A lot has been happening in our family these past few months - things I didn't want say out loud or write about, but I think I am ready...

Last July my Mom, at age 71, my best friend in the whole world was diagnosed with Colorectal Cancer. 
My thoughts weren't the normal thoughts - How? Why? What will we do???

But instead, peace a peace only my Heavenly Father could bring!

My Parents are awesome, God-fearing, family loving people who are also Pastor's of our church! They have taught us, I have 3 sister's, to live a Holy life after Jesus, to seek Him in everything we do and depend on Him always!

When we found out my Mom had Cancer, she was very calm and unafraid. She simply said, "I'm not worried, God will use this for His glory."

A woman who taught me God is bigger than any mountain, all of my life, is an incredible woman who hasn't wavered in her Faith.

She has shown me that 'this is the way you live what you believe.

I have seen my precious mama drop in weight from her size 12 comfy Mimi (Grandma) type body to a size 4, 111 pounds weak and tired body, but strong in Spirit. 

Still giving God the Glory and carrying the Peace that passeth all understanding, never questioning why, but waiting patiently to see what God has in store for her.

Today is her last day of what has been 25 agonizing radiation and Chemo treatments.

Next step, Keep trusting in the Lord, and see the Oncologist in 2 weeks.

Thank you so much for listening!
