Where I am weak , He is strong!!

We have had a wonderful weekend of celebration - Miss C turned 10 yesterday!!
I cannot believe a decade has passed since her birth 10 years ago.
It was a day that changed the world as it was 9/11. We were waiting in the parents lounge watching TV on the ward. I was having an elective caeser due to a previous difficult delivery and expected size of Miss C. She turned out to be 10lbs11 !!
Just as we were called in - we saw something coming up on the news - but we went off to have our baby with no knowledge of the tragedy unfolding !
It was quite surreal as when we returned to the ward with babe in arms - we could have cut the atmosphere with a knife. Staff members were crying as they had loved ones overseas - there was shock and disbelief all around.
And yet in the midst of this despair - God had given us a precious gift - a little person who knew nothing of what was happening around, a little person who would bring us great joy, a little person who would grow into a tender hearted girl, an encourager and one who loves her creator! A ray of hope in a very dark day.

Today as a face the next chapter in this Breast cancer road - I am so thankful that God brings hope in the darkest places. I am feeling weary and would love a time out but that is not possible yet. This morning I prayed God would help me and strengthen me in my weakness!
This is what I read not long after

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
His faithful love endures for ever.
Let the congregation of Israel repeat
His love endures for ever.
Let Aarons decendents, the priests repeat
His faithful love endures forever
Let all who fear the Lord repeat
His faithful love endures forever

In my distress I prayed to the Lord
and the Lord answered me and rescued me.
The Lord is for me , I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?
Yes the Lord is for me ; He will help me.
I will look for triumoh at those who hate me
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidenece in people.

Though hostile nations surrounded me I destroyed them all in the name of the Lord
Yes they have surrounded and attacked me,
but I destroyed them all in the name of the Lord
They swarmed around me like bees
they blazed against me like a roaring flame.
But I destroyed them all in the name of the Lord
You did you best to kill me oh my enemy,
but the Lord helped me
The Lord is my strength and my song
he has become my victory
Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the Godly
The strong arm of the Lord has done glorious things
I will not die but live to tell what the Lord has done......

I write this with tear filled eyes!!

What hope when facing the darkness !
Just leaving to get my first radiotherapy zap - will fill you in later x
