A Rough Road Ahead…

by Rose

As some of you know and some of you do not, my Father was diagnosed with cancer this past weekend. The tumor that we were told was benign, which was removed from his neck in October, grew back in a short six weeks. It not only grew back with full force, but also infiltrated his carotid artery, jugular vein and muscle. A CAT scan of his chest also shows three spots on his lungs.

Though cancer has infiltrated my Fathers body, there are things it can never do or take from him.

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 reduce eternal life.

It cannot quench the Spirit.

We have a rough road ahead of us. Sometimes the roads you walk in this life are roads, you certainly would not chose for yourself or anyone you love. However there they are before you and there is no going back and there is no alternate route.

And yet we have great comfort and hope and bravely will walk forward in faith because we believe though the road may be rough, it is a road we do not walk alone on.

The steps of a man are established by Yahweh, And He delights in his way.

When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, Because Yahweh is the One who holds his hand.

Psalm 37:23,24

My Father

So please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We love you and appreciate each and everyone of you, for your emails and messages of goodness and cheer. You are each a blessing to me and to every person on this farm.

With warmest regards~Rose
