It's NOT Cancer!!!!!

Last party post will be up sometime soon! I really appreciate all your sweet compliments and encouragement to get out on my own and start something.....we will see what the future holds. But RIGHT now it's time to rejoice and praise our God almighty!!!!

My mom is THE most awesome woman I know! She loves our God and has never met a stranger. Recently we received some disturbing news. My mom was diagnosed with stage 1 lung cancer. My mom is not a smoker and only 50. She is also very healthy, except for her occasional sugar splurge every now and then! :) So, this came as a complete shock to me and my family.

Once we received the news we were engulfed in prayers and love from so many friends and family. A Facebook group was started and it was amazing to see the around the clock prayers my family was and still is receiving. Although, the diagnosis was not good we were told the tumor was very isolated, and the surgeon would remove part of my mom's lung. The doctors were very positive and thought cancer wouldn't be an issue for my mom's future. What happened next can only be described as GOD!!!!!!!!!!!

My mom went into surgery today! She kept telling me she didn't have cancer. She told me she had talked to God and she just knew she didn't have cancer. There was a 10% chance the tumor was not cancerous, but the family had pretty much accepted the fact that it was after her needle biopsy last week. The doctors said she did, therefore her surgery went as scheduled this morning. Then my father received news from the surgeon that the lesion was in fact not cancer and was removed! Praise God! I can only describe this as a God moment. I can't tell you how many people have grown closer to Jesus or may have met Him for the first time through my mom's "diagnosis." I understand now what my mom has been telling me all along. We may not always understand God's work but there is ALWAYS a greater purpose. A purpose that we can't see but He knows every reason and outcome for. I am thankful we have a loving God. I am thankful we have a merciful God. I am thankful we have a caring God. I am thankful!!

I am flying home next week and I can't wait to hug my mom's neck and tell her she was right! YOU DON'T HAVE CANCER! And OUR GOD knew it all along!

My mom blogged about her story on her ministry webpage. She is much better with words than I am! READ HER STORY! And keep in mind when she wrote this she was coming to terms with her diagnosis! (Even though I think she still believed she did not have cancer.) Her story is ALL for the glory of God!
