Positive People Only

I think there should be a sign on every hospital room door that reads:  "Positive People Only"

God already knew that I needed to change my attitude and that He was going to use me as a vessel to help Tucker through some of the difficult days ahead.

Sometimes we are stubborn in our own spirits and we question God.  Even when you know that God is speaking to you, we have a tendency to want to question what HE is doing.
My thoughts  were "How can I pretend that things are not bad?"  Tucker was losing weight, his hair was falling out, and there were many complications from the treatments.  He was having blood transfusions, radiation, surgery and very painful injections in his legs. 

It would take a tremendous power of thought and emotion to get my attitude transformed to be where it needed to be.  But, the truth was that I simply needed to listen to God and let him lead me every step of the way.  Tucker needed me and I knew that I needed to commit my attitude to God in order to help Tucker.

A spiritual base is an absolute essential not only in the roll of healing, but in our everyday life.  To remain Peaceful, was going to be a big key for Tucker's healing.  I wanted Tucker to feel my uplifted spirit.  I wanted my Peace to radiate over to him.  I wanted him to know that even though there were going to be tough days ahead, he needed to keep his focus on the good and to believe God was healing him. 

I truly admire Tucker.......He has fought hard everyday to give it  his all and because he did and because he trusted God, he is here today.   He still has a year and a half  to go, but with God by his side, the end results will read  "Cured".......


Things to remember:

1.  cancer does not deserve to have a capital c

2.  make a choice everyday to get up happy and to smile.  Say Thank you Lord for another day.

3. Surround yourself with Positive People

Great words.

One of my mentors in the ministry has said that the most effective way to bring the presence of Christ into a situation like Tucker's is to be the "non-anxious presence" in the room. It appears you were probably that for Tucker, giving him a great picture of who God is.

A big AMEN to that sister. I'm so very glad I popped in. Tucker will definitely be added to my prayer list and believe this Ozark farm chick...a positive attitude and strength in God goes a long way in fightin' the battle.

My baby girl was born with a heart defect and we spent most of her first year in intensive care. Time and time again doctors told us how slim her survival rate was. I was often asked why I was smiling or how I was laughin'. The nurses looked as us strangely when we asked where the nearest mini-golf, movie, etc was...just so we could get away from the negative vibes in the waiting room.

Baby girl??? She'll be celebrating her 32rd birthday in August. She's a wonderful stepmom to three beautiful children and mother to baby Ian who just celebrated his first birthday. Doctors...not always so smart....God is supreme!!!!

From the happy hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa, ya'll have a wonderfully blessed weekend!!!
