It doesn't seem proper to thank God for no cancer; (re my results from the second mammogram taken) for as I looked around the waiting room that day, I knew some of the woman might have cancer; but I have thanked Him for the inner peace with knowing (regardless) He was there and will always be.
This reminds me of the many stories told within the book, "Why Bad Things Happen To Good People" where the pros and cons are expressed with very deep searching on Harold Kushners' part.
Having lost a son to progeria, he examines the whys'.
Goes through the motions and experiences first hand, story after story and then being asked time after time, Why?
Why two woman setting side by side in the mamo center have the same problem with 'questionable' first mammograms, then one is relieved 2 days later with good news, while the other one receives the bad news, you have cancer.
Might the first womans' response be WEW... then immediate thoughts of the 'other' one who has just been told she has cancer.
Life is ~ and we are to cherish each breath that we are given with knowing, God is. With faith we are and by His grace given ~ eternal Life.
Regardless of what situation we are faced with ~ Gods' got it covered. Trust.
Thank You sweet Jesus.
Dear friends please pray with me in agreement for the others who now face with knowing they have breast cancer; for the nights are the worst as their mind races and no sleep surfaces from.

O blessed Father ~ thank You for alerting my spirit to the ones needing prayer tonight. So afraid they are Lord; as I lift them up to You and ask in Jesus' name, heal every scar, rid their body of the cancer that seeks to destroy them. Supply them with the courage, strength to endure, and wisdom as the surgeons prepare for next week.
As they wait for Your guidance Lord, I pray with knowing, You are here and will answer their call.
Your word states Lord, "Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righeous right hand.(Isaiah 41:10)
Lord, in Jesus name we claim Your promise of strength and we will not fear!
Yes Lord, my spirit embraces Your presence as Your healing takes place.
O glorious Lord, thank You for the comfort of Your presence; O how they love You.
Praise You most High Almighty God for Your healing.
In Jesus' most precious name always, we thank You Holy Father.
