Normal, I’ve forgotten what that is. But what I do know is that I’d rather be in God’s story than have a normal one without Him. We had an opportunity to participate in a live taping of Beth Moore at Life Outreach last night and today. After a very short night of sleep we pulled ourselves together this morning and returned for the second day. It was SO worth it. You think an hour a week with Beth is intense in bible study try sitting in “class” for about 8 hours with her. It was amazing. God delivered a message that spoke straight to my heart. It will take a few days to process all that we’ve learned today….WOW!!!
I had an amazing God moment today with these women laying hands on me and praying healing over me. I was touched by the outpour of compassion and love from these complete strangers. After the taping was complete a wonderful lady, Holly, came over to encourage me with her story and answered some very practical questions for me. Things like, “cocktails” about every 21 days, the reality of the hangovers from the “cocktails” and how she was able to continue working through her treatment. Sometimes you just want the details, tell me what I can expect. She was so sweet and kind, I can’t wait to be her new friend.
After we left the studio I took Pam to the Ft. Worth Stockyards to see “real” cowboys and get a taste of the west. Although she enjoyed it I think she was secretly wondering how long do we have to stay here and when can we get back to the city? 🙂 We wrapped up our day with a fabulous dinner in Sundance Square complete with dessert, chocolate of course because we’re girls. It was over dinner that I realized I had a day without every thought being about “It”. I was blessed today with teaching that challenges me in my walk, not my cancer, my relationship with the Father. Because you see, I truly believe with all that is within me that this isn’t about me, it’s about our Father and how He will use this to bring glory to Him. I am honored to be His vessel, He is the potter and I am the clay. This is His story, I am a character and cancer is the subject in this chapter and remember this is just a chapter not the whole story.
