We have a date . . .

Yesterday, we found out that my surgery will be next Tuesday, December 16 around noon. We will visit the Doctor this Wednesday for pre-op and then over to the hospital for pre-op there. I got to thinking about how I will miss Shalyn's first piano recital. She is playing "Jingle Bells", 4 years ago this was also Scottlyn's first recital song. Scottlyn is joining Shalyn at the piano and playing a duet together. Then Scottlyn will be playing "White Christmas". I am so proud of them both!! I will also be in the hospital for Shalyn's 7th birthday. Ever since my girls were 2 we have always woken them up on the the mourning of their birthday with a cupcake and the whole family singing "Happy Birthday". I will miss this all . . . you can see my spirits were down last night. CANCER . . . SUCKS!

When I awoke, I listen to the song "Grace" by Michael W. Smith and then I read this:

[The Lord says,] "It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear." Isaiah 65:24 NKJV

  • Prayer is a wonderful privilege, an honor that sets us apart. We alone have access to the throne room of God - not for purposes of judgment but because He has added us to His family, made us heirs to His kingdom. We have been invited in, dear friend. For us, there is no fear of faltering in our speech or fainting before Him. We can proceed with perfect confidence that we will be acknowledged, listened to, and cared for. For this reason, prayer is not a confrontation but a communication - simple interaction between Father and child.

I poured my heart out to Jesus and He held me tight, then He whispered into my ear, "Trina, I am right here".

Jesus thank you so much for your "GRACE".

Thank you all so much for your prayers . . . .

Resting in HIS arms,

Praise God for the quick surgery date.

I empathize with your low spirit. when I thought I might have breast cancer, I started thinking of what I was going to miss.

Yes, you are going to miss the girls' recitals, and Shalyn's 7th birthday this year. However, you'll be around for their future recitals, birthdays,graduations, engagements, weddings, Christmases, etc.

I hope I didn't sound cold. I didn't mean to. I was trying to cheer you up. I love you, my friend.

Maybe they can give you a mini piano recital after the surgery to cheer you up? (I'm sure that you have someone taping the original recital for you to watch later.)

You could prepare the cupcake prior to going to the hospital and record a birthday message from you including you singing happy birthday, so your husband could give it to her first thing in the morning...

I know it's not the same as being there physically, but maybe it will help a little. For my daughter, little things like that helped when I was unable to be there myself due to recovery from my surgery.

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me." 2 Corinthians 12:9

I am praising the Lord with you that your surgery date is so soon. I am so glad that you don't have to go through Christmas with cancer in your body!
I do so sympathize with you about all that you will miss (you're such a wonderful Mommy and I know that you want to be there) but concentrate on what you WON'T miss!!
You are very dear to me and I am praying for you daily.I think about you all through the day. We pray for you during our family devotion time too.
God is with you through it all.(I know that you know that already.)
Love and Prayers,
