It’s celebration time! The Silver Lining is having a wonderful winter giveaway to thank you for all of your love, prayers, support, and encouragement this year while my husband has battled cancer. Simple directions for entering the giveaway are at the end of this short, joyful post!
God has heard our prayers! He has sent Jesus, The Great Physician, to touch Dave; and begin shrinking and dissolving the cancerous tumors! Lately we’ve experienced even more visions from brothers and sisters in Christ, along with positive evidence from oncology. This new update will be out by Christmas Day. Praise God! Thank you for reading Dave’s Testimony and sharing it with others who need encouragement; especially those battling cancer. Thank you for praying for Dave, and for believing in a miracle with us!
It’s been a rough year; filled with trauma, tragedy, and… cancer. Every. Single. Day. The trips to the ER started in January. Though he’d been diagnosed with rare, aggresssive, fast-moving, deadly, stage four colon cancer; we began to write Dave’s Testimony. Our hope, from the very beginning, was to comfort others with cancer by wholly leaning on strength through Jesus. Our deepest desire? To lead as many people to Jesus Christ as possible; so that all of us can be forgiven and have eternal life!
It’s now the end of the year, and we’ve experienced many miracles from God, just as Dave said there would be, when both of us made the decision to write about his cancer… all of it; the good, the bad, and the ugly!
We’ve chosen to move forward in faith: trusting God, living on strength through Jesus; and asking for God’s will to be done. It’s been the most stressful, difficult, and painful journey we’ve ever traveled; especially for Dave.
We’ve put ourselves completely into the hands of God. And now, we are experiencing the greatest miracle of all… Dave’s body is slowly being healed; when just a few months ago, we had to come to grips with terminal cancer.
We’ve had a beautiful Thanksgiving with family, and now we are blessed with the coming of Christmas, soon to be followed by a new year with Jesus at the center. We’re celebrating… so I’d like to invite you to participate in The Silver Lining Wonderful Winter Giveaway!
