pressing on

IMG_5661


i can say without a doubt in my mind, that i am thankful. thankful for my family who surrounds me with love, for a Heavenly Father who loves me unconditionally. there's a certianty of knowing life itself is a blessing. this road has been long and hard, nobody could have prepared me for what i went through. no amount of words can describe the external and internal pain of having cancer, some things just can't be explained with such ease. now that my journey is at its end, another begins. the path of recovering from this seems to me a strange one to take. from the moment i was told the cancer had completely left my body, i knew a miracle had been preformed. there is no other explanation, God healed me and took my sickness away. and like a solider returning from a war-trodden country, i am settling back into the world of health i once knew. fighting the cancer was truly a physical, emotional, and spiritual battle. and as i heal from the hard times, i know that He will hold my hand, like He has always done and forever will do.

  9. There is so much depth laced within this post. I never really thought of how you still have to heal emotionally from the hard times of having experienced something so difficult, that it affected so many other areas of your life and perspective. But one thing I know for certain is that you are as BEAUTIFUL as ever, and that God is going to use you and your testimony just where you are to bring glory to Him. Still praising Him for your healing, and trusting that He who began a good thing in you will carry it out to completion. Keeping you in my prayers as you continue to heal and THRIVE!

    love & blessings,
