Hello everyone. 

Praise the Lord forever!! So many of you have been praying for me and this note is to thank you for your efforts. The Lord has heard and he has moved in my behalf.

I have had a series of MRIs and CT scans, and my oncologist told me yesterday (10/15/07) that there is NO CANCER in my spine or my brain. This cancer was seed tumors that literally filled my spinal column and was supposed to leave me permanently paralyzed and end my life in November. Because of the type and location of the tumors, I was told it was incurable. Treatment included fifteen radiation treatments, three rounds of chemotherapy, three days each, which did not make me sick or exhausted, and I will have another three rounds of chemo just to be sure. I am no longer sick, plan to return to work later this week, and my oncologist has withdrawn the Ďdeath penalty.í Praise the Lord!

Itís a fact that the cancer could return - it has done so twice now - but I find myself in the place where I have lived for the past three + years, held tightly in the arms of Jesus. As I have said so often since I began to deal with cancer, Jesus holds me in his arms while he walks on the water in the eye of my personal hurricane. And I love it. There is peace and calm there in the eye of the storm. I can see and hear the rush of the wind, but it doesnít touch me because I am safe in the arms of the one who rules the storm. Itís not dark because Jesus lights it up. No fear of sinking, Jesus can walk on the water. To be sure, we are headed toward land where he will put me down and take my hand for the remainder of the journey. If a storm arises again, I have complete freedom to jump right back into his arms. What a way to live! I think we call that a win/win situation.

I never thought I would be dealing with cancer at the end of my life on earth, but that seems to be the fact of the matter. The good news is, the Lord has his own plans and has brought me through three times. The news would be just as good if the Lord took me on home, since that is where I really want to be. But I guess he has heard my prayer (which is prayed every day) - Lord I want to come home - the FUN way. Soon heís going to answer that prayer in the affirmative, perhaps just to stop my nagging. LoL.

In the meantime, which I donít think will be too long, I will serve him with every fiber of my being. I will praise him, I will express my gratefulness and give him the glory to every person who will listen, and there seems to be a lot of them! Bottom line here is, I love Jesus and I just want to see his face. And when I do I hope to see a smile. I know he will get one from me.

May God bless you all as we wait for the coming of the King.  deborah
