i was reading this book. called Hannah's Gift. its about this lady who found out that her 3yr old daughter, Hannah has contacted cancer. She's christian and she writes bout her last year with her kid, and how her faith weavied and all... but how she found a renewed faith too...

these are some quotes which i think is really good:

-Faith is the substance of things hoped for , the evidence of things not seen.

-Hope, i realise now, was the irrespressible substance of faith. It welled up naturally in response to fear and uncertainty, returning again and again, like a living thing.

-Joy, i realised then, is not concerned about being messy, mismatched, or unloved. If i was serious about living life more fully, i was going to have to let go of my need for everything, including myself and others, to be perfect. [authour was having fun with Hannah (that cancered kid) with paint... all dirty, but fun.]

-Every time that we say "Thy will be done," we should have in mind all possible misfortunes added together

-"Thy will be done," i prayed from the bottom of my heat, knowing even as I said it that what I was really trusting was that His will was also my own.

-"God is capable of working a miracle, right here, right now"
This was excatly what i'd been afraid of. Our faith was being hikackedl it was all on the line. I breathed deeply into my rising panic, and let myself hear Rick's words.
"... Love," he said, "is the source of all healing."


that last phrase... (: really touched my heart. it was when the author had been given a "healing service" specially for her family, her daughter. but ... she was afraid that HEALING might not literally be a HEALING. as in... cancer and tumour taken out of the kid. after all, healing service in church... hmm... sometimes god doesnt give us what WE want. cause its not OUR PLAN, but His. she was scared that others would think that God wasnt real if he didnt heal Hannah. however, that quote was said by one of their frens, at the healing service.

.:: good food for the thought? ::.
