My Cancer Journey
If you have been following me on my breast cancer journey, this poem about keeping calm was written early in my diagnosis. Tomorrow, I am booked for surgery. My faith has continued to keep me calm and in touch with Jesus.
I have chosen to write in an abecedarian form of poetry because it helps my thoughts flow. Using each letter of the alphabet I choose a word or phrase.
I would love to know if you have tried writing poetry this abecedarian way.
The scripture I chose was from my study that morning. The idea of faith being able to fan into flame gifts of the Spirit inspires me to continue writing and painting. I also feel calm.
I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
2 Timothy 1:5-6 (NIV)
Faith is developed through use.
Prayer and reading the Bible are my morning routine.
Faith in God
How I Keep Calm
Faith in God
Justice (man’s not God’s)
Quiet, calm and
Zeal for me and you.
