This all has me thinking of my cancer and my own mortality more. I had a clear PET scan, it didn't show more cancer. But, that doesn't mean I will never have cancer again. Cancer is an ugly word and an even uglier disease. I hate cancer. Because I've been feeling so good, both Matt and I tend not to think about cancer anymore, but reality is, it could come back at any time, it will always be a factor in my life. A big factor. Did I mention I hate cancer?
As I often do when I wake up in the middle of the night, I turned to my devoational book. A few quotes from Praying Through Cancer.
- Don't forget in the dark what you've learned in the light.
- It is not that any of us would choose to have cancer. But, as Christians, we're in a win-win situation. Some wise wordsmith put it this way: "The worst that can happen is the best that can happen."
