I spent a few hours putting together a testimony of my cancer journey. It was about 3 pages. I was given a time-frame of 20-25 minutes. One morning I read it out loud (by myself) to see how long it was and it was exactly 20 minutes. :o). Thank you Tonya for letting me be a part of your ladies group. :o)
The scripture that I shared was:
The reason I used this scripture is because it had so many verses that explained our journey together. Kevan had to clothe himself with "compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience" as he took care of me. I know it was hard on him. We have to forgive each other when we were both tired of the journey or I wasn't feeling well. We "put on love" for each other and tried to "let the peace of Christ rule in our hearts" when the journey got tough and we weren't sure when things would improve. We tried to "sing psalms, hymns...with gratitude in our hearts to God" for what He was doing in our life always "giving thanks" to God. We knew through the journey that this was God's plan and it made it a lot easier to go through knowing God was right there with us.
If I have some time later I might type up a little more about what I spoke about. But, I wanted to share that it was great opportunity and I was very thankful that Tonya invited me to participate. Thank you!
