Cancer is Like a Wicked Thief

That broke into my house to find jewelry, money, etc. and other valuables but that thief misses so much like my books, writing, pictures, memories. Don't give cancer more than it's due. Cancer can ravage the body but it has no claim on the soul.

defining experiences in one's life. We all have those things we think are so very important but when that doctor with the stethoscope around his neck walks into the examination room and says to us in a somber voice "I'm sorry but it's cancer" then all that we thought was important is suddenly and brutally thrown into a whole new light. Things will simply never be the same for us again. We immediately cross a bridge that we never would have chosen and there we're going to find out things about ourselves that we never knew before. And we inevitably come to understand in a new way what we really care about most deeply, indeed, cancer is a defining experience but I believe with all my heart it can turn out to be a good defining experience. In the midst of our cancer crisis, we can find the shepherd. He's the one who genuinely knows us and knows where we are going and in spite of the confusion that has invaded our lives, we can still feel secure. "He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters". This is an excerpt from Ken Curtis Video. Ken Curtis fought cancer for eight years and to quote him he says "I have been privileged to live an unusually full life. I have had extraordinary blessings, travels, opportunities, ministries, freedom, and honors, so in all honesty, I do not feel like I can in good conscience ask for more. I am content to leave it in God’s hands. I am a servant of a faithful master whom I trust more than I trust myself. Surely goodness and mercy have followed me and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
