HOPE – THINK POSITIVE
Hello and good morning.
Dan and I practice hope each day, with the uncertainty going on in the world around us we feel very blessed. We trust that our lives will only get better, when one door closes another door opens. I believe that hope is the end of one situation or opportunity is often followed by the start of a new one.
Professional and Spiritual this is what hope is:
Is it a wishy washy maybe or a kind of unsure optimism? The modern idea of hope is “to wish for, to expect, but without certainty of the fulfillment; to desire very much, but with no real assurance of getting your desire.”
In Scripture, according to the Hebrew and Greek words translated by the word “hope” and according to the biblical usage, hope is an indication of certainty. “Hope” in Scripture means “a strong and confident expectation.” Though archaic today in modern terms, hope is akin to trust and a confident expectation.
Hope may refer to the activity of hoping, or to the object hoped for—the content of one’s hope. By its very nature, hope stresses two things: the time yet to come, the future, and that cannot be seen. It deals with things we can’t see or haven’t received or both.
Romans 8:24-25 For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one also hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.
I wrote this piece in 2011, this is when I was diagnosed with cancer and hope was all I had. I was uncertain what my outcome would be, but my heart lead me to try other options to treat my cancer other than the conventional ways. Because of the hope, I was able have the strength to be who I am today.

As I turn through the pages of my past year, I have gained spiritually as well as mentally and physically from the experiences of cancer. I have gained a lot of knowledge through incredible top-rated people and through this sharing with others; the hope and comfort it brought me.
Cancer can be controlled, but you need to treat it with respect. You need to know what you are dealing with and how to treat it daily. Its learning how to reorganize what’s important to our bodies and lives we lead. As I close the last chapter of this book, I will let you on a secret! It’s your choice and you need to take control of the issue not leave it up to others to make the decisions for you. I started with a program that enhanced the quality of my life by first changing the way I ate and drank. I learned ways to meditate to release stress and made time to exercise. It’s those important steps that maintain hope of never seeing cancer again.
We need to stand up to what is affecting us, the environment and face the final curtain by thinking outside the box and realizing what we are working with.
Through my words that I have written and the articles that I have shared throughout this year, I am hoping it will give you a better understanding of how to treat cancer within your body.
As I regroup my personal life, I will continue to manage my cancer and help any others that are going through it with the support of my heart. I am a survivor of knowledge and not of cancer. I will not let it control my body and mind.
Individually we are a drop, but together we can create an ocean, let’s start now ~ it’s your choice.
Courage is standing face to face with fear... and smiling at it!
I believe that that corona virus will be controlled and like my diagnoses with cancer will become the past and we will overcome the fear.
How have your spiritual beliefs helped you to receive or acknowledge the blessings in your life?
Until next Saturday, have a peaceful weekend.
Looking forward to share some recipes and activities for your children that are home and probably bored by now.
