“I love you for all that you are, all that you’ve been, and all you’re yet to be.”
~ Excerpt from the Holy Bible app ~
One of the most dreaded sentences a patient can hear is, “You have cancer.” These words bring a chill to the heart. Although great progress is being made in treating this disease, recovery can be long and painful.
An enthusiastic believer in Christ, Dan Richardson, lost his battle with cancer. But his life demonstrated that even though the physical body may be destroyed by disease, the spirit can remain triumphant. This poem was distributed at his memorial service.
Cancer is so limited…
It cannot cripple love, it cannot shatter hope,
It cannot corrode faith, it cannot eat away peace,
It cannot destroy confidence, it cannot kill friendship,
It cannot shut out memories, it cannot silence courage,
It cannot invade the soul, it cannot reduce eternal life,
It cannot quench the Spirit, it cannot lessen the power of resurrection.
If an incurable disease has invaded your life, refuse to let it touch your spirit. Your body can be severely afflicted, and you may have a great struggle. But if you keep trusting God’s love, your spirit will remain strong. ~ Dave Egner
“Our greatest enemy is not disease, but despair.”
~~ 1 Corinthians 15:35-49
I will remember your face
‘Cause I am still in love with that place
But when the stars are the only things we share
Will you be there?
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. ~ Jeremiah 29: 11-13
I’m never going to ask a lot from you from this day on. Just please love me a little more. I don’t care if it’s a sad little love. Just a little bit more. A little love that only we know.
Last night I was watching the fireworks.
The only person I thought of was you.
I smiled. A smile I never had for a long time.
Today I’m watching the rain.
You said goodbye.
You said you will always love me.
The rain is killing me.
I didn’t say goodbye.
I love you.
A promise is a promise.
