Hi friends. Please pray for me, that I can live up to the signature line at the bottom of my posts. I'm having trouble trusting God lately. My little brother Andrew is very, very sick from his colon cancer. He cannot beat it and we do not know how much longer he has to live. He is only 52 years old. This is my big sorrow. There are little ones as well, all keeping me from peace, and tonight from sleep. Thank you for praying for me or sending me your good thoughts. I appreciate all the care you all always give to me. Thanks for being my friends in good times and hard times. Right now it is a hard time. That's all. Just thanks.

Aww Cindy, I am so terribly sorry your brother, you and all of your family are having to go through this. It's not easy I know, it's scary. I will pray for peace for all of you and that you can spend some time together loving and caring for each other. Peace my friend.

[FONT=Comic Sans MS][SIZE=4][COLOR="#009900"]Do you think that worry will stop the inevitable?
When it is our time......it is our time......I'm sorry Cyndi, you know I care for you......

My husband died suddenly over 17 years ago.....I'm still here......and I am happy
I cannot get a gift for my DD for Christmas....I only got PJ's for each of my grand-kids for Christmas...I started shopping for them 3-4 months ago.....that is all they are getting

But I don't care.....the rent is paid, the bills are paid.....the tree is up and shining brightly....we have a beautiful warm house and are secure in the fact that no utilities will be shut off!

I have much to worry about but I know that I don't need to.......as long as I am doing the best I can I know that God will take care of the rest......

You're right, worry is the opposite of trusting The Lord (yeah, I Googled it) you should too!

It is hard not to worry. We ned to take the energy we waste on worry and use it for hugs and prayers to keep us strong. I am sorry to,hear of your brothers illness. So young he is. While my dad is not young, he too is fighting a cancer that wants to win.

All we can do is love and be there for those who need us.

Cyndi.... Sending you lots of hugs, and prayers, too. I am so sorry you are going through this terrible time.

This time last year, I was where you are now, only it was my husband who was so sick.... I knew he wouldn't...couldn't 'tlive much longer. Like you, I turned to the wonderful people on this forum, and believe , me, their love and support was invaluable... When my husband died, on January 8th., they stood right by me...their love holding me up, their prayers keeping me safe...

So... This is a good place for you to be...

Grief and sorrow are so personal... Each one of us deals with these things in his/her own way.... There are no right or wrong ways too cope with the feelings you are experiencing now.... Grief is like a quilt.....you can make it your own, no matter what the pattern might say....

I found that I couod only put one got in front of the other....it's still that way..... "Grief bursts".., those sudden, overwhelming emotional meltdowns became both alarming and comforting... They last only a few minutes,but are very intense. And very normal.

Don't worry about not trusting God right now. He will carry you through this anyway.... So will we. Come here whenever you need to talk about what is happening to you, your brother and your family... We'll listen...holding your hand, and giving you warm hugs.

God bless you and your family....

Thank you all SO MUCH. After writing here I went back to bed and slept peacefully. I appreciate you keeping Andrew, our whole family and me in your prayers as we walk down this road. Every day with Andrew is precious to me. I really don't want to waste my time in worry but in trusting God and enjoying the time I do have with my brother. Thanks again for your care towards me.

Cyndi, it is okay to have these moments. No, they are not comfortable and they can drain alot of strength from us; but they do happen for a reason too. Some say it is to test one's faith, some say it's to help us let go and other say it is just the way life is.
But I see it as a reminder, a reminder of that poem "Footsteps in the Sand." When my Dad was dying, I worried endlessly. As that poem flashed in my mind, I got a mental picture of a huge hand holding me. Carrying me, in fact. And I saw the other hand holding my Dad within the security of His palm. It gave me a sense of peace even through the worry.
I hope you can gain some comfort from these mental images and I will keep you all most close in my prayers. :icon_hug:
