When mom came to live with me, her last year even if we didn't know it would be, mom made this comments or question, I don't know how your doing all this." I responded, "mom, nothing but the grace of God." You see, I was born with polio, I am now 62 years old. It was mom through God's leading she showed me how to live my life, as normal as possible. I am #2 of 6 children mom had, and I know now I was chosen to take care of her till her last breath. Only God could have been able to have me do this, as hard as it was, looking back now, I remember asking the Lord, for 4 things. Heal mom, keep my car going, keep ME in good health, and don't take me before her. There are times when what we pray for is not to be, we all have an assigned time given to us, no matter what. I first dwealt with the, if only I, I shoulda, I coulda guilt trips by the enemy. Someone, told me it wouldn't have mattered if you had done this and the other, the Lord knew what other battles she might have to face even without the cancer.
Even to the day, I had to let her go, God answered yet another prayer. You see mom and I had an agreement, she had asked me to fight for her life, to the very end, I agreed to her request, and fought everybody and their mother, to keep fighting for her. One nurse said to me, go home take a bath, rest, eat, and I said, no I can't I promised her I would not leave her alone as she had asked. Nurse then said, well she doesn't even know your here, then I almost jumped on her (haha if I could) I said, she might not know now, but I Know, and I will stay here.
God will give you that peace that surpasses all understanding in the midst of the storm, we aks where is God, well, I finally see that he was in the same place he was at when Jesus was sent to the cross. You see no one was able to take mom away from her belief in God and his word to the very end. So ask God for that peace, if for nothing else. God bless all of you on this journey down this road. ;)
