Faith

"Among the many things I have learned is that we are what we choose to be."
- B. Rains

    Without faith in God, I would be nothing. I would be so scared, knowing I have stage 4 cancer. But, I thank God that I do have faith.


    I had wonderful parents who taught me from a child to love God and live as He would have me live. I was baptized January 12, 1952 when I was thirteen years old.


    Life has been good, and still is. I have experienced many things and I have traveled and seen many places. I have met and known many different people. I have worked at several different jobs. I have had fun, I have loved and been loved, and I have learned so much.


    Among the many things I have learned is that we are what we choose to be. For every twist and turn in my life, I can trace it back to a choice I made. When something has happened that I could not control, I made a choice as to how I would react to the situation. When I learned I have stage 4 cancer, I made a decision to accept the fact that nothing else could be done by the doctor. So I just accept every day the Lord gives me as a special gift and live it the best I can - with God’s guidance and help. So far it has worked!
