From an Obsessive Optimist in the Eye of A Hurricane.

life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass; It's about learning to dance in the rain.


Are you in the “eye of a hurricane”?  Are you facing a problem, obstacle, dilemma, predicament, a quandry or trouble? 

The eye of the hurricane I am currently in, is the diagnosis I received on October 12, 2009 of Inflammatory Breast Cancer.  This came as a shock to me as I have tried to live my life in such a way as to be very healthy.

I did receive a word from the Lord, actually 2 separate words.  A contractor I hired to put up a fence, called me back after hearing of my diagnosis.  He said that as he prayed for me, the Lord reminded him of a rose-bush that had been mowed over in his sister’s yard, and that the year after that happened, the rose-bush had come back – better than ever, covered in beautiful roses.  With every chemo treatment, feeling completely mowed to the ground, I would meditate on this good word. 

The second word came at a messianic worship service I went to with my sister.  A delightful young couple came up to me after service and told me the Lord had told them to tell me that I was healed and to give me the scripture Jeremiah 17:8-9;

But blessed is the man who trusts me, God,
   the woman who sticks with God.
They’re like trees replanted in Eden,
   putting down roots near the rivers—
Never a worry through the hottest of summers,
   never dropping a leaf,
Serene and calm through droughts,
   bearing fresh fruit every season. 

Even as I have walked through 6 chemo treatments, a radical mastectomy and 33 radiation treatments, as I was fat and bald from chemo, and lopsided from surgery and burned from radiation I kept these promises close.  I choose to believe the promises of God over the present facts!

I believe every problem, obstacle,dilemma, predicament, quandry, or trouble that comes our way contains the seed of our future success!!  Together, you and I will be able to find that seed of success, water and grow it.  Join me for free and let us see what will happen.

  1. God bless you darling. And thanks for sharing and reminding us how important it is to be vigilant. Breast cancer doesn’t care who has been good and who has been bad; who has looked after themselves and who has taken every risk known to man (or woman!) It’s not fair. But you are staying strong and getting through it, and not only that, sharing your experience with others. I’m glad you have your faith, and pray you get well soon.

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I am happy to share that belief I have had for many years, that nothing happens withour benefit to you and everyone around you, if you have the courage to look for the benefit. I pray that the Lord will give me strength to live this out for His Glory.

    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog and I too sincerely wish you every happiness in 2011. You enquired about my book and it is on The links are on my blog at

    I have read your above post and I wish to share with you that in my book I have covered ilnesses and how they can be healed. My book is a 6th sense publication i.e. I wrote it under God’s guidance. Whenever God wishes to pass on a message to mankind he chooses an ordinary mortal who will not question but simply do his bidding. Do please repeat this to yourself any time of the day and as many times in the day as you wish. Lord it is you who have created me and it is you who can heal me. I accept that I shall be completely healed. I feel myself getting better with every passing day. Thank you for blessing me with this knowledge.
    Another important fact I wish to share with you…God never punishes ….he is eternally benevolent. It is we who punish ourselves with our fears.
    I remain
