“How can you mend a broken heart?” (The Bee Gees)

Sherry- March 1, 2011

“How can you mend a broken heart?”  (The Bee Gees)
What becomes of the brokenhearted?  I’ve spent the last week reflecting upon the psalms:  a book that reflects the honest struggles of the brokenhearted. 

 It unveils to me an area of life that brings heartache, but more importantly, it’s there that I can find hope and encouragement in times of struggles.

Not that my heart is entirely broken.  But ‘dashed  hopes’ run along those same lines.   Cancer does that.  It changes your life on the drop of a dime, trying to steal your future and dreams.

 Getting over it, overcoming it- takes more than will power.   HOPE is at the center of living above cancer.

But what if no one gives you hope ?  How can you mend the heart that is broken from anticipatory grief?   
In  the midst of our trials and grief, “Our hope is in God (Ps. 39:7).
A heart mended is a heart  that hopes in God.
Ask me, I know.

Terence’s medical update:
·       Oncology appointment in 2 weeks with a full metabolic panel taken, including PSA (last PSA 89- down from 141)
·       Increased pain and fatigue, again!
·       Fighting off a chest cold, fluid in his lungs

Thanks for prayer!!!
