Cancer Still Sucks, But God Is Still Good

Good Morning everyone. They say that nothing good happens after 1 AM and at 2:20 this morning we found that to be true once again. My Bride’s stepmom and warrior went to be with the Lord today ending her battle with Cancer….

As many of you have read before, I have gotten a first (and hopefully last) look at what Cancer does to the human body. Just a short year ago this woman was full of life, spunk, and energy that I have never seen matched. When you look up the word multitask in the dictionary, you will see a picture of Donna.

Her ability to do so many things at once, and not just do them but do them WELL, is a testimony of her passion for people and a direct reflection of the Spirit of Christ that was in her. She was so many things to so many different people and as an outsider coming into this family so many years ago, she always made me feel welcome, never judged me on anything, and was always in my corner.

So, today, Cancer may have won the battle, but in part I am comforted in knowing that right as I type this, Jesus has His angels showing her around the place. She is going to get to meet the Saints of Old and New, and with Jesus at her side never have to experience pain or suffering again. I’m also sure the reunion with my father-in-law was a feeling of joy that is unexplainable. One day we will be there with them too…..

Please continue to pray for the family today and in the days to come. Her absence will definitely leave a void that could never be replicated and my prayer is that even through this, good will come. That our family would be closer than ever before and most importantly that we would grow to be in Christ more than ever before. Thank you all for your love and support and may God bless all of you today and everyday.

in Christ,

David

  2. I am so very sorry to hear about your loss. Please remember that SHE still needs prayers. Christ tells us to pray for the dead – for their souls. My father was a wonderful, giving, God-fearing man, yet I continue to pray for the repose of his soul. (he passed away 4 years ago this month) We must remember to always pray for those who have gone before us to their eternal resting place. It is wrong for us to just assume that they are in heaven. We hope they are, we like to believe that they are, but how often do we remember to pray for them, in order to do our part to help them get there ? It is very difficult to lose a loved one, and it is comforting for us to say that we “know they’re in heaven” but the truth is, we don’t know. They may be in purgatory and our prayers may be just what they need to help them get to heaven. Everyone who is in purgatory will one day be in heaven, and by praying for them, we can help to shorten their time in purgatory. Please remember to pray for her – that’s the most loving thing you can do for her right now. She may very well be in heaven, but the fact is, we just don’t know that for sure. I will pray for her as well. God bless you and your family.

  4. I am sorry to hear that, i hope they have a good place beside their God.
    I also have cancer, breast cancer when i was senior high school, i was 15 years old. I was very young and i don’t know about that dangerous ill. I remembered my mom cried a lot, and did anything for my health. She did bring me to the doctor and the doctor said i should get surgery. My breast looks awful, looks so red and i didn’t wear bra. Then my mom borrowed a lot money for my surgery. After that a day before surgery, a friend of my mom have her sugestion to try another treatment. And my mom bring me to the place that her friend mentioned.
    I met ustadz (same like pastor in Cristian), he prayed to Allah for me and gave me herbal medicine, and i did drink that medicine for 3 months. Alhamdulillah now i am recover from cancer.
    Not only me, my aunt and my eldest sister also have breast cancer. Even my aunt’s breast had exploded. And thanks for God we are all get well now

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. My condolences to the family. Acts 24:15 offers hope of a resurrection when we will be able to see our loved ones again. I look forward to the Paradise where we will never have to worry about sickness or death (Revelation 21:3,4). May you all gain strength in God’s promises of a new life in God’s Kingdom to get through this difficult time.
