A Cancer Diagnosis - the Worst Thing in the World?
Sometimes people start talking to me about their fears because they or someone they love is being tested for cancer. They are so anxious...so afraid... Other times someone will exclaim that the test results were normal...they are cancer-free....and they are so excited...so thrilled!
In every instance, somewhere in the middle of their story, they begin to falter, realizing they are talking to someone who is battling cancer. Their expression changes. They soften their emotions. They eliminate the "c" word, switch the topic or try to explain how really scary it was for them.
But it doesn't bother me.
Cancer, or any other scary diagnosis, isn't the worst thing in the world that can happen to us.
The worst thing in the world that can happen to us is a lack of faith.
