This is Terry. I am waiting for Sarah to return from Surgery. About 2 hrs in of a 3 hr surgery. The surgery was started 3 hrs behind the regular schedule. I have friends and family waiting beside me.
I am not as eloquent (or even know if I spelled that correctly) than Sarah. But we have the same God. I am stronger in faith than I have ever been. I have been a selfish christian and ready to be more. The service I have seen of friends and family has also shown me my own weakness.
My answer to the question, what do you do, should not be, Benefits Administration, but should be I work for the Lord. Let me tell you what he has done for me.
This transformation hasn't come from this experience alone. God has been working on this slowly for awhile, from finding Copperfield Church, joining the right small group where I met Mark who served in the Tech Department where I started serving in, where we started a study called the Truth Project weeks before getting the news of cancer.
Leading a life of service for the Lord is not easy, but I echo the title of this blog as well. "Here Am I, Send Me." I am ready to serve the lord and be a witness to further his kingdom.
But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord, I say, "You ar my God"
Surgeon just told me Sarah is out of surgery and everything went according to plan (Mastectomy, PortCath insertion and node disection). Sarah will surely blog more later. Thank you everyone for your prayers and support.
