6/01/2012 * Denise * Gordon age 62 - stage IV colon cancer * I have 3 adult daughters, Wendee, Tara & Heidi.*I also have 7 grandchildren and 1 in the oven. * My sweetheart of 40 years went to be with the Father after a three year 3 month journey like no other we had ever been on before. When first diagnosed we prayed for healing and never stopped but we also prayed THY will be done. We knew Yeshua was there each and every day walking with us, guiding us, encouraging us, intervening with miracles. We saw the cancer go away twice only to return after coming off treatment for 8 weeks. There were ups and downs, praise and anguish all the while knowing that our redeemer lives and helps always. I find myself physically, mentally, and spiritually exhausted. This came over me a few weeks after the funeral and after out of town family returned home. My help comes from the scripture and a book on grieving a friend gave me. She had lost her husband 1 year ago. The book was just what I needed. Thank you for this blog. I have found help already as I read the many posts. I never imaged I would find myself in these waters at this time in my life. Your blog and others like it are like a lifeline to me. Thank You for being here. * Florida

  1. Each month when the list is posted, my heart is struck and I feel again that great empty space left by our beloved spouses, a vacuum where there is no light, no sound, just empty space and our own beating hearts. I'm so glad I have God to cling to and his promises that he will surely fulfill.

  2. Amen, Doris, and may the Lord's comfort and promises transcend your loss and fill you will His hope.
