A 36 year old mother was discovered to be in the advanced stages of terminal cancer. One doctor advised her to spend her remaining days on vacation.
A second physician offered her the hope of living two more years with the grueling side effects of radiation.
She penned the following words to her 3 small children:
“I’ve chosen to try to survive for you. This has some horrible costs, including pain, loss of good humor, and moods I won’t be able to control. But, I must try this, if only on the outside chance that I might live one minute longer. And that minute could be the one you might need me when no one else will do. For this I intend to struggle tooth & nail, so help me God.”
People attempt to prove their love through many different means & some go to great lengths to do so. But no one ever proved their love like Jesus did in dying for us.

“On the whole, God's love for us is a much safer subject to think about than our love for Him.” - C.S. Lewis.
