This is a message we all need to hear at different times in our lives!
I was feeling a little down this morning (feeling sorry for myself) when I turned to a book a friend gave me. The book was written by Dodie Osteen and entitled “Healed of Cancer.” Cath has mentioned this book on carepages in the past but it is the first time I picked it up and read it. It is a very spiritual book about faith but one of the things that impressed me was Dodie’s lunch bucket approach to life. I came away from the book not feeling sorry for myself but with a need to put my pants on and get moving. So that is what I did and I can’t tell you how much better I felt. Isn’t that just like life that when we want to curl up in a ball and stay in bed feeling sorry for ourselves the best medicine is to put on your pants and get things done. So tomorrow I am going to get up, put my pants on and go get chemo # 4. Tonight when you say your prayers don’t worry about me I’ve already got my pants on but think about all those people who are still curled up in that ball of fear (we have all been there) and ask the good Lord to give them the strength to move forward.
“O Lord…I plead with you, and you gave me my health again. You brought me back from the brink of the grave, from death itself, and here I am alive.”
Thank you Greg for how your attitude continues to inspire us!
