When a doctor tells you your time is almost up because you have cancer and pulmonary hypertension of the lungs…instead of being sad, I was put on Hospice and that day changed my life. I handed my life over to God and since then God is in complete control. He has allowed me to watch my two older children become grandparents and these two babies have changed our family and brought us so close.
I have a son who is into drugs and who I cannot help anymore. God has put a shield on my heart so I have peace. He has put me in a wonderful place now because my son is getting the help he needs. I live in so much peace.
One day when my burdens were heavy, I was sitting in my chair and when I closed my eyes and talked to God I felt him there on my couch. It was the most wonderful experience. Everything I asked for, he did. Amazing. God answered my prayers through people he sends into my life, through things on television – sometimes I feel like they are talking directly to me. I am so blessed. My journey to heaven is so wonderful and very peaceful now.
My husband died of COPD and I was his caregiver. Without Hospice I wouldn’t have made it. Now I am the patient and I didn’t think twice about making this journey without Hospice. I share my experiences with many people – cashiers, friends, anyone who will listen. People are afraid of Hospice. They think you have to be dying in 6 months. For me, I will be with Hospice for 2 years in November. I am only alive by the grace of God because I believe he has things he wants me to do yet. And that is what makes it so special. I have had more peace these last 2 years than any other time in my life. I pray that God takes me in my sleep and my children, friends, and family need to be happy because that is my wish and God did it for me.
There is not a day that goes by that God doesn’t take care of me, if I’m willing to see it. It doesn’t matter what we face, God is with us. I am not alone.
