My piano teacher, Debi Hake, has been battling breast cancer since May of this year. The Columbia Missourian presented her story in a sideshow on its website. We hope and pray the best for Debi and her family.
While on this topic of dealing with serious illness, I also want to point to the story of Colleen Kelly. A couple weeks ago at Every Square Inch, I read some words she had to share about her own battle with cancer, and the ways in which her relationship with God was shaped in the process.
Death scares me, though if I had great faith, it would not. I’m inspired by those who can look it in the face and see God, not only in the next life but in this one, as well.
