When you question ‘What is Next?…and God answers

Coming up soon to a year since I spent 8 days in the hospital learning about the Cancer that had become my life sentence. It was the worse 8 days of my life and I believed I would not have many more days left.

However, those who have read my earlier posts understand and know that I have God by my side and he continues to guide me through the days of my life.

About a month ago I was feeling the lowest. I had felt since entering the hospital. My cellulitis and Lymphedema in my leg was at its max with no relief in sight. The infection was taking a toll on my body and my mind. I was not sure if I should give up the chemo to save the leg or how I should proceed. I spent some time that day feeling sorry for myself and shedding tears. My daughter Lindsey ( my confidant and there for everything angel) did her best to make me feel better as always but then needed to go home and pick her daughters at the bus stop.

After a good cry I walked out and got the mail. In the mail was a very special card and gift from a very special friend in Florida. Christine had sent me a butterfly card with a very special message.

๐Ÿฆ‹ Butterflies are my favorite and have stood as a special symbol for me since my sister died. In the envelope was also a beautiful butterfly necklace. Tears of joy and appreciation filled my eyes. Throughout the night I heard from 6 other friends out of the blue ๐Ÿ’™ who were checking in on me to see how I was doing.

God intervened once again at a time I was at a very low point. By the end of the night I was feeling quite positive and very special to many of my friends. God heard my heart and answered my worries by delivering such positivity from my friends and family at the perfect time it was needed. I am so thankful that God is my father and protector.

    I was so touched by your beautiful words about the butterfly ๐Ÿฆ‹ card and necklace. I believe that it arriving at a time that you really needed was truly a sign from God. He is telling you that he is watching over you and is your protector.
    Keep the faith and know that you are are in my prayers always! Wishing you light, love, laughter and healing thoughts! God Bless you Laurie.
