My daughter has metastatic osteosarcoma. Our family relies on our faith to get us thru each day. I think, and hope, that my daughter puts a smile on our Father's face everyday by the way she is perservering thru her suffering. She is amazingly thankful for what Jesus has done on our behalf and lives with gratitude.............amazing. So, that's my situation.
Question for you folks; other than the Bible, what book has helped you the most to be the best caregiver to one that you love? I need to keep filling my mind with the proper perspective so I too continue (I hope) to glorify my Father in heaven. It is a daily battle against bitterness and mistrust. It requires effort on my part to walk with him and I think that good reads can definitely help.
So far, the most helpful books for me have been The Great Divorce and Mere Christianity by CS Lewis and Heaven by Randy Alcorn.
I would only think of the Bible and God's promises to us. I'm battling cancer for the third time in 6 1/2 years. I'm 61 years old and have been saved four years next month. Battled cancer two times lost and this time found. What a difference a Savior makes! I wish I could inspire you and comfort you and lift you up. If there is anything you can think of that I can do for you and your daughter, please let me know. I'd like to add ya'll to my prayer list.
