Take each day as a gift from God. No longer taking for granted that tomorrow is a guarantee. What this next week holds we do not know. We have cried out peayers on on bending knees.

This is a wake up call that is for sure. Frustration and wanting my way has been my struggle. No longer will I let minor things irritate, or dictate my day. For each day has enough trouble.

When they tell you your days are numbered. Thoughts of kinds fill your mind. Death doesn't scare me, or were I'll spend eternity. What scares me the most is the effect on my family I leave behind.

With news like what I received it takes you off your feet. It takes the air right out of your lungs. Coming to the realization, that your days are numbered. Thoughts and things we didn't think of when we were young.

We have turned it over to God. Knowing that this is to Him is no surprise. That what ever the reason it is for His glory. I have put my trust in Him, knowing He holds my soul. Yet we may ask why have we been thrown into this story.

My hope, my trust, my faith is in what He can and will do! Even if I'm not delivered or healed from this diagnoses, to Him alone I will praise. Through this storm I know God will never forsake us, even as you walk by myside. Even if darkness and doubt araise in the future days.
