Hello fellow Bloggy friends! Since I am out of town, I decided to go way back and repost some of my first blog posts. This was written almost one year ago in May.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
Tuesday brought news for our family that we weren't expecting. My GeeGee went for her routine mammogram and was met with the news that she has two "spots" on her left breast. That's the only one she has as she has met with the big "C" before...in 1982 she lost her right breast to this evil disease.
I immediately found myself wanting to control the events surrounding this circumstance. Being the nurse that I am, I wanted to call a surgeon and have the biopsy done right now. Not June 7 (when it is actually scheduled) but RIGHT NOW. I mean, how can we wait for almost 2 weeks to know what is going on here? Who are we going to get to do the surgery? I wonder if she'll do chemo or radiation? All of these thoughts and more ran through my head before I even paused to ask God to be in this situation (even though He's already all over it). I didn't even acknowledge Him or His plan for us.
After I slowed down a minute, it occurred to me, "What in the world can I do to change what is there and what God's plan is for GeeGee?" Absolutely nothing is my answer. Every single one of her days was numbered before there was even one of them according to my God. He knows His plans for her and they are for good not evil His word declares. He tells me to rest in Him because His yoke is light. He says to be still and know that He is God. God is God and I am not!!
PS- there was no cancer and GG is still thriving at 80!
