Cancer is so Limited

My friend Tim posted this on another forum and I asked his permission to post it here.

Cancer is so limited.

It cannot shatter hope.

It cannot corrode faith.

It cannot cripple love.

It cannot destroy God’s peace.

It cannot kill friendship.

It cannot suppress memories.

It cannot silence courage.

It cannot invade the soul.

It cannot conquer the spirit.

It cannot steal God’s gift of eternal life.

Cancer is so limited.

Very good.

It reminds me of what Paul said. Oh death, where is thy sting. Oh death, where is thy victory.

Reminds me of what Heather of www.especiallyheather.com said:
"First and Foremost, I am a Christian. I believe that my cancer didn’t take my God by surprise. I have no fewer days left on this earth than I did before cancer entered my life. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that, no matter what happens, this ends well for me."
