Within this past month, my aunt has been diagnosed with breast cancer, had surgery, recovered, and also traveled to Disneyland.
Today is the day, she starts her chemotherapy.
I was told once, by a friend who went through chemo, that she would often get super cold during her treatments. When I found out that my aunt was going to go through chemo, I decided that she needed a snuggly blankie in case she experienced this "getting cold" bit too. Not only is pink the "color" for breast cancer awareness, it's her favorite color too!
With all these new and unexpected changes in her life, she recently shared this in an email:
I feel very much at peace and know that God is in control of my life, whatever he has instore for me. One of my favorite verses is Romans 8:28 "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose." That verse has helped me through a lot and continues to help me now. None of us know what lies ahead of us each day but we know God is in control and with His perfect timing we can have peace in that blessing.
God is good all the time. All the time, God is good.
