I never leave Your hands

Remember last year? Last September, my aunt was diagnosed with adenocarninoma of the lungs. Real time lingo, lung cancer. She was quite possibly one of the bravest people I saw fight the battle that she fought. My aunt knew that Jesus faced an unimaginable battle and this was just a piece of cake. She said, This too shall pass. And it did. After the radiation, chemotherapy and every other demon that comes with cancer, she faced it head on. She came out on top, stronger than ever. As a family we faced the battle together. She is our aunt, she is our family. We might not have felt what she felt,  but we fought the battle just as hard.

And we are going to do it again.

Last week another dear family member was diagnosed with breast cancer. She may not be family by blood, but she is just as much family as a cousin or aunt or brother or sister. She is our family. So once again we stand together stronger than before to brave another battle. Although this sweet little lady might not show her toughness like some of us, she really is. She will fight this fight with her head held high to only come out on top. That's the only option, right?. Since last year, we have all become a little tougher, and we are ready for the unexpected. I have to speak with this optimism because when you think positive, positive happens. So we will take your hand, and we will all hold on tight. Please keep her and our families in your thoughts and prayers.

God is good all the time and all the time God is good.

 "Your hands" JJ Heller

 I have unanswered prayers
I have trouble I wish wasn’t there
And I have asked a thousand ways
That you would take my pain away
You would take my pain away

I am trying to understand

How to walk this weary land
Make straight the paths that crooked lie
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine

When my world is shaking, heaven stands

When my heart is breaking
I never leave your hands

When you walked upon the earth

You healed the broken, lost and hurt
I know you hate to see me cry
One day you will set all things right
Yeah, one day you will set all things right

When my world is shaking, heaven stands

When my heart is breaking
I never leave your hands

Your hands that shaped the world

Are holding me
They hold me still

I must say I heard this song here,
I spoke of this story a few weeks back.
It is a beautiful song.
