DIAGNOSIS DAY

Dear Jesus,

Today is diagnosis day. The love of my life is by my side, waiting to hear the news.

Unbelievable news…MSA…Multiple System Atrophy..NO WAY! A degenerative disease of the central nervous system with no cause or cure..no reason to have it, and prognosis is poor. My brain cells are dying, no slowing it down,tears down my cheeks..I’m going to drown!

The knot in my stomach and the urge to vomit confirms what I have known for a long time..I am dying. To hear the words makes it all too real. I am dying. So to celebrate we go out to dinner, quiet in our own thoughts of what we have just heard, but
can’t taste the food, because there is no cure.

And then out of nowhere, through the power of God, I start to feel stronger, a strength I never felt before. I understand that my body can’t keep up with my spirit, but my spirit will always remain strong. I will fight this battle with every ounce of strength I have in this weakened body, to beat the odds. With God by my side, my Spirit will soar and I will not give up!

I thank you, Lord, for this cross I now have. It makes me stay strong. I am proud to help carry the cross and offer it up everyday. My purpose is to illuminate Jesus in all I do and say, and to make Him proud because He made me this way.

My heart,
Cynthia

" I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way." Psalms 139:14“I have learned the secret of being happy at any time in everything that happens.” Phillipians 4:12“Even when you are old, I will be the same. Even when your hair has turned gray, I will take care of you.” Isaiah 46:4

This may be all jumbled, but that’s how it was. The day of my diagnosis June 5, 2005.
I write letters to Jesus as my journal each day. It helps me to focus and remember to pray. Verses above, randomly picked on that day.
