What Cancer Cannot Do

Cancer is so limited…
“Yet in all these things”

It cannot cripple love, it cannot alter hope.
“We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”

It cannot corrode faith, it cannot destroy peace,
“For I am persuaded that neither death, or life...”

It cannot kill friendship, it cannot suppress memories,
“Nor principalities nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, depth,”

It cannot silence courage, it cannot invade the soul.
“Nor any created things, shall be able to separate us from the love of God,”

It cannot steal eternal life, it cannot conquer the spirit.
“Which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 8:37-39

NOTE:  In April 2011 my daughter lost her 3 year battle with colon cancer.  Seven months later my husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer as well.  It's been 4 months and after chemo and radiation and 2 major surgeries, the doctors beleive all his cancer is gone.  We are praising and thanking God for that.  And we are praying it will not come back.

Abigail and I were studying the Bible yesterday and we were reading this very passage; then I see your post on FB about this amazing blog of your's that I didn't even know existed and click on this particular post of yours. Thank you so much for sharing! God uses us when we make ourselves available to Him!

Love you guys and miss you much!

Thanks Trula. This particular blog didn't actually exist until a couple of days ago. LOL These are a collection of things I've written over the last 6 years and am still writing and creating.

Love you too!
