Then Jesus said to his disciples,
"If anyone would come after me, he must first deny himself and
take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life
will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.
( Matt. 16:24 )
Watch What You Ask For!!
Eight years ago, my oldest grand-daughter had a lump on her neck.
She was only three years old. The doctors said they thought it was cancerous and started running tests. You can imagine our feelings.
In my heart I couldn't bear the thought of her having such a horrid disease, so I asked God to give me the cancer and not her.
My prayers soon came true as we were told my grand-daughter was
cancer free. We were so relieved and thankful
when we found out.
or deal I had made with God. Within a few months, I was given "The News". I had breast cancer! Thankfully, it was in the very early
stages. I was very lucky. I went through the surgery and although
it was there, it was still in the dormant stage.
