Concerning Cake and How It Is Made

When I began this blog I never expected to be writing about cancer nor to be reading other bloggers who are dealing with cancer themselves.

It's a comforting thing, somehow, to be encouraged by others who are close to the Lord.

My friend, Roxanne, is currently undergoing radiation for breast cancer. It doesn't matter that my cancer is ovarian and hers is otherwise. We both deal with treatment, with the after-effects, with fears, with having to place our lives in God's hands. We both know that God is a sovereign God, meaning He is aware of and in control of all things. And when things don't quite make sense in our own eyes, we know that God knows a whole lot more about our situation than we ourselves know. And so we submit to Him and are grateful. In the midst of our illness we have joy in Him. Whether our health be good or bad, we rest in Christ.

You can read Roxanne's post about cake that she posted today here. And you can read her entire blog at Roxanne's Journey.

I love your words. That whole middle paragraph is beautiful, but this is what I'll carry with me the rest of the week: "Whether our health be good or bad, we rest in Christ".
