Dear Students and Friends
Recently I found out my dear friend might have cancer due to something in her blood. We are each uniquely amazingly formed by God’s design. This particular person is amazing because she has such a strong will about her and probably was that way since birth. Actually I picture her kind of screaming and kicking at birth as she is just that full of life. We live over a thousand miles apart the past 13 years.
To not hear from her in awhile and bump into her only on Face Book to chat and find this news just while I happened to log in to listen to music was upsetting but at least now I know why I have not heard much from her and she knows that I am here for her.
So what do you say to someone when they tell you the Dr thinks they may have cancer? Well not much you can say. You ask all the normal questions but really inside your just asking yourself “Why?” , “Why my friend?”, “Why does anyone have to have darn cancer?”. The bible teaches me that God has reasons for everything we experience in this lifetime. So 13 years ago when I had Stage 1 bordering Stage 2 intraepithelial neoplasia aka Cervical Dysplasia removed I had to rely strongly on the fact that God was in charge and he had a plan.Since finding out about this persons situation she has been on FaceBook stating how she felt and mentioned feeling like she wants to give up sometimes. I had to remind her that she is the strongest person I ever knew. I know that is not much help at this time and if she told me to “kiss off” I would not blame her. I think every word counts and we need to start the healing even before we know the full diagnosis
As you can see I am not a huge Face Book person and don’t spend too much time on there but it is nice to reach out to loved ones and old friends and that is what I use it for. I have found friends from my childhood and people that I had lost touch with from my young adult years and I know many of you have done the same. Face Book sometimes you unite us and sometimes its good news and friendships are rekindled and other times it is troubling things we stumble into or situations that need more Mantras then I can find to recite. Face Book you manage to get us involved with each other in ways we otherwise may have just let another day slip past without realizing and so for that Mark Zuckerberg we thank you, you got that part figured out.
So today I share the healing manta with everyone as we all have something inside or outside that needs healing and this applies to each one of us.
