Facing Certain Death

What would you do if you were given six weeks to live?  Today I watched a video made by a beautiful young Mom, just 37, who had been handed just such a prognosis a few days earlier.  The initial breast cancer, which she had been aggressively battling for four years, had spread through her bones, and into her liver.  One of the things she chose to do was to make a public statement of her faith- “Why Death is not Dying”, and video tape it so that some day her children could hear her heart. Rachel made two statements that particularly struck a cord with me.

“There is nothing you can do to make God love you more, and nothing you can do to make God love you less.”

“God allows in his wisdom what he could easily prevent by his power.”

    “Facing Certain Death”
    When I saw the header, my first reaction was, “Isn’t that all of us?” On second thought I realized that “Facing” was not applicable to all of us–many of us are in denial of our mortality.
