A piece from my poetry-memoir (WIP).
I shared a precious moment of my life in a letter to my dear friend battling with cancer. I wrote: “I’m thinking of you, and you just can’t imagine how much I admire your courage. I remember the season I discovered a lump in my breast— to stay upbeat was so challenging. Every day, I was asking God for healing, and energy. A bizarre event happened during my surgery— I suddenly woke up to say loud and clear in the language of the surgical team: 'God is: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit'. Can you believe? I had just started studying the Word of God, and never in my life had I pronounced that statement In a foreign tongue. Through the fog I saw a hand stretching toward my face, it covered my nose and mouth with an anesthesia mask to lullaby my mind back to oblivion. Since that very season I’ve learned about Christ Jesus, that he is our Lord— Heavenly Father has loved us so much He sent His Son in the human flesh to die for us and rise up from the dead, to take away our sins and nail them to the cross, to save our souls from perishing, and give us the Comforter, Guide —His Holy Spirit. He called us all to believe in Him, and to love one another as He has loved us, His sisters and brothers. I pray the Lord will revive you during and after chemo and help your surgeon to leave no scars at your motherly breast. I just want you to know how much I care about you, sweet friend, and love you like my sister.”
