As most of you probably already know, I was  diagnosed with thyroid cancer in October of 2000. I immediately turned to the scriptures several times a day about his promises to us his children and about healing. As I have told many friends who have called me, God gave me a peace about my illness that even I did not understand. My first report came back saying that I had Medullary Carcinoma, a very rare and aggressive thyroid cancer. The doctors and pathologist were puzzled because my blood work was normal.(Praise the Lord!) This went on for several weeks and in between my two surgeries, Jim and I flew to Jacksonville, FL where the group was singing. There was a lady at the church who ministered to me, and told me I would get a better report. Two days after we came home, my doctor called and said the cancer was not the kind they thought it was. The Thyroid Foundation had determined it was Follicular cancer, a much more treatable kind.(We serve an awesome God) I did not know until much later that the mass on my thyroid did not have cancer in it, but the cancer was isolated in another little spot sealed up in a capsule of healthy tissue. The doctor was baffled and amazed at my case. He kept talking about the "man upstairs". After the second surgery something happened to my vocal chords, I could only speak in a whisper for several days. My voice is gradually coming back and I know that God will give complete healing in his own time. Update: My voice has been restored and I am cancer free.

From the very beginning, I realized this was a test of faith. So I decided that if God could save a sin-sick soul, surely he could take care of me. It was and is a time for me to stand on what I Believe. For me this could be just a detour or maybe an interruption in my life. After all Christians Sail under Sealed Orders, we find God's will as we are on the way.

My family has been a steady force behind me, and my life has been incredibly touched by the prayers of people who have interceded for me.

I have found great truths in favorite passages of God's Word, such as:

Jer. 30:17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord.

Psalms 107:20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

And my favorite:

Psalms 91:1-2 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God in him will I trust.
