My Precious Friends!

My precious friends,thank-u for all your prayers.I need you to keep praying. The doctor told me today that the mass was a stage 2. I can not even say the word. I just call it a mass! I am going to try to have a good additude,and keep my faith in God.I do not understand, but I know He is in control. Isa.40:31 says, But they that wait upon the Lord, shall renew thier strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary,and they shall walk and not be faint. This was my Mamas favorite verse in the bible. I miss her so much.Especially at a time like this. I know I have got some long days ahead of me. I guess I will just make it one hour at a time most days. You all will never know how much you mean to me.I am so blessed to have you. We will be leaving out tomorrow for our Summerville home. I am looking fowards to getting away for a while.I guess we will be back Mon. night. Well I guess I will go for now.I am still walking around in shock I think.I hope you all have a very blessed weekend! Love you all!

  1. Faye, I found your blog the other night and have been waiting for more news. Sweet lady, my heart is so heavy with the news. I have had a scare myself the last month, but my news was much different. I will continue to pray daily for you and your family. God is good....he can heal you....just trust. Have a great weekend, try and clear your mind...I know...not easy.

  2. I have been waiting for you to post. Oh sweet friend...I am in tears. I know that God is the great healer and he can do all things. I know that, I just hate to hear this. I guess now that we know we will pull up our boot straps and face this. I am with you girl! I want you to know that. You can email me and call me if you want (I will email you my number). From this moment on we know that God's plan for us is to prosper and not harm us. He will see you through this! Take some time away from this and enjoy your family. You need them right now. (they need you too!) It will be ok.....our Faith is strong and our God is STRONG! I am here for you anytime you need a friend. God bless you Faye. You will get through this.

  4. Dearest Faye,
    I cannot begin to imagine what your must be feeling right now. All I CAN say is that I will truly be praying for you. It is nice that you will have the weekend away from things. Perhaps it will be a time to pray and wait on the Lord.

    Many Blessings...
    Fondly, Your Friend,
    Carrie

  5. Please get yourself a copy of the book God's Creative Power for Healing by Charles Capps and begin reciting these confessions daily until you see the manifestation of your healing. There is power in the words we speakThe book is only $2.00 at charlescapps.com
    It was given to me while I was pregnant with John charles and having trouble with diabetes, by a lady who had been diagnosed with cancer during her pregnancy. She refused to repeat the diagnosis to anyone including her preacher. Instead she prayed these confessions daily until the baby was born. When she went back to the doctor at that time, the cancer was gone!

  7. Faye,

    I have been there my friend and it is so darn scary. I know how you are feeling and the thoughts that are rushing through your mind right now. I will be praying for you my friend...because I know the feeling & it helped me so much to know that others were holding me up in prayer.
    Blessings,

  8. Faye,
    I'm just now getting to get online and wanted to come straight to your blog to see what you found out today.
    I am so sorry to read this news. It made me so sad!
    I do know that we have a great big God who is still in the business of working miracles and healing. Nothing is too hard for Him!
    Enjoy your weekend and I will be lifting you up in prayer to our Father often throughout each day.
    Love you!
    Valerie

  9. Sweet Faye - I'm so sorry. I was hoping that would not be the news you would receive. Keep your good attitude and with God on your side - miracles can happen. Stay strong and know that many of your friends are praying for you and sending you much love. With my thoughts and prayers, Cathy

  11. Hate to hear your news. I'm praying for you.

    That is my favorite verse too! Well actually verses 28-31. I just don't think its complete without the rest, lol. I guess because I can just hear myself saying that(in my own words of course)... Have you not known? Have you not heard? That the everlasting God, the Lord, the creater of the ends of the earth- faints not! And neither is He tired, and there is no way to search/comprehend His understanding! He gives power to the weak, and to them that have no might- He increases thier strength! Even the youth will faint, and the young men will utterly fall- (here's may favorite part) But they that wait upon the name of Lord will renew their strength, they will mount up with the wings of eagles, they will run and not grow weary, and they will walk and not faint!

    Sorry, didn't mean to go all quoting scriptures on you, that you have obviously read recently, lol. I just get a little carried away sometimes. I guess I get excited, lol.

    Have a great night and a relaxing trip!

  12. Faye,

    I will continue to lift you up in prayer!


    God is faithful! Look to Him!

    Have a great weekend getaway!

  13. I know stage 2 sounds very scary, the very word is scary. My brother and my 12 year old niece are both fighting this disease, and they were both diagnosed at stage 4, and so far, they are winning. In fact, my brother is in remission and has been for a few years.

    It is enough to know that the Lord is with you. I love this verse: "She will not fear bad news. Nor live in dread of what MAY happen. Her heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. That is why she is not afraid." Psalm 112:7 (I paraphrased it for you).

    You will not walk this path alone. You have the Lord, your family and friends, and your bloggy family. We will be praying for you and standing in the gap for you.

  14. I'm sorry you have to go through this, but I'm glad to hear your faith in God is strong.

  15. Oh Faye, I am so sorry that you had to hear the words you did not want to hear. You have so many people praying for you. I want you to know I prayed for you several times yesterday and so many others are doing the same. God is our provider and all I can say is keep looking to Him. My Amber was given a death senetence by the doctors and even told us to tell everyone in the family to say their goodbyes. I refused to acknowledge this and prayed harder. I called every person I knew who prayed and asked them to call every one they knew to pray. 2 days later Amber was healed. It was a miracle. I say that only so you do not lose your hope. Keep your peace in Him. Please.
    I hope you enjoy your time in Summerville. My husband has a lot of family in Summerville. It's such a small town. Maybe you know them? June Zahn and John & Karen live right next to her. Good Lord, I can't remember if their last name is Zahn either. They are always just Uncle Johnny and Aunt Karen!! Oh that's funny.

    Praying for you,

    Jennifer

  16. Faye,

    I just saw your comment at Sally's Blog. I don't know you but I can tell that you are one who knows the Lord. Your post speaks so very highly of you.

    May God be with you through this journey. I have good friends who have come through cancer and claim it was the one thing in their lives that strengthened their spiritual walk more than anything else. Given our choice we would certainly never choose this...but God is good.
    He WILL use this in your life for your good and HIS glory.

    Praying for you!!!!

    So glad you have family to support you through the decisions....

    Best wishes for a quick recovery!!!

    Becky K.

  17. Hi Faye!
    I found you on Sally's blog. I just wanted to let you know that I'll be lifting you up in prayer. Always remember that God is the Great Physician, so continue to lean on Him!

  18. Oh Faye, I'm so sorry to hear it. I will be praying with you and for you.

    I want you to know that your prayer request on my blog today inspired me to ask the other four moms if we could do a "Prayer Request Sunday" blog EVERY SUNDAY on our new "Five Moms & A Blog" site. Hopefully this will bring moms together to pray for each other and use this WorldWideWeb for GOOD! =0)

  19. Faye, I just don't know what to say. I'm so sad, I was hoping your situation would be better than what the Dr. said. Just know that you are being lifted up in prayer by a lot of blog friends. Keep the faith. Twyla

God brought me to you to help you. Blessings, SusanD

  24. (((Faye)))
    I've been away but as soon as I walked in today I logged in to check the news. I'm so very sorry as this isn't the news I was praying for. What you can count on is knowing you are not alone. I believe He is with you and while we are all here, praying and being a virtual support, He will give you strength/courage and what you need to FIGHT.
    My friend, your faith inspires me as does your strength...we are here...He is here.

    A new friend.

  26. Faye, I could not believe this when I read it. I am going to get on my knees right now. We will believe with you that this is a miracle in the making. Summerville, Ga.? We are not far then. Maybe we could get together sometime. Please keep us updated.

  27. Good morning Faye, I read your comment on Sally's blog and just popped over to let you know you are in my prayers.

  28. While it's not good news, I was somewhat relieved to hear that it isn't a later stage. I know God will work all things together for your good. I continue to pray for you. I'm glad you were able to get away for a few days.

  29. Faye, My heart was deeply saddened when I read your post. I read it as soon as I got home from work on the 20th but was left speechless and could not write to you until now...but I have been praying for you.

    If there is one thing I have learned from all of the illness my family has suffered through in the last three years, it is that God will never leave you! Even when you are walking in the valley, when you are facing one of the scariest things in life, God is there for you, His child, and you can trust that He has everything under control! Just reach out your hand and He will hold it, lift up your arms and He will carry you!

    I pray comfort, peace, and healing will surround you. I also pray God will give you an abundance of strength as you stand up and fight against this disease that has "invaded" your body.

    Many blessings your way!!

  31. Dear sweet Faye....I feel your shock, and I will be believing with you for God's healing touch! Remember, this was not a surprise to our Abba, Father! He has a plan...a plan for hope and a good future Jeremiah 29v11!! Stand on His promises of unfailing love...

    Bless you,
    Susan
