Reply to "First timer-Mother has lung cancer"

Somebody must have "gathered together" in prayer because the situation got turned around before I went back to Moma's last night. The pain medicine has her comfortable. I told her I was so glad, she said "You need to turn your worry over me to the Lord, I have". You see, my Mother has not considered herself "saved" since she was in her thirties. There was a split at the church I was brought up in, etc. you've all heard the same story from someone you know. Also, she let my Granny's shortcomings in her walk with the Lord make her very bitter. Noboby could even talk with her about her relationship with the Lord until three years ago. I related answers to prayers to her and sent her Guideposts. She loves to read so she just devoured the stories in that publication. So the Lord started drawing her back in three years ago. THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME SHE HAS EVER TOLD ME THAT SHE LEFT SOMETHING WITH THE LORD!! So my sweet Moma, you left yourself at the foot of the cross for the Lord to take care of you. There are no words to describe how I felt hearing that, even though I already knew things would be right when she crossed worlds. We began talking about some end of life issues, too. She was relieved it seemed to be able to talk freely. I told her I was going to get some information together from Hospice (I saw a checklist for families to use as they sit down to talk about concerns, etc.) so that we can cover some ground in the next few weeks. I read stories on this site last
night that were comforting to me. I still kind of fumble around with all these icons and such. I keep running up to the BACK button when I know there must be a better way to navigate. Gail, I know you must be laughing. I've visited some sites I Loved but now I don't know where they are. My husband taught me the "favorites" thing. Boy that is a list now! Lord Jesus as I come before you this morning in prayer, Father give Gail, Lou and Karen and the ones they love and care for a restful night. I thank you for all of them. Amen
