Love from Liz – introduction.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my “Love from Liz” page. I have been a member at Trinity Grace Church for around 30 years. My husband Rob is a full time elder here too and we have both been actively involved in church life and ministry.
A few months ago it felt like the bottom dropped out of my world when my oncologist told me I had advanced breast cancer that it was no longer curable, but only manageable for the short term future.
I have been suffering with breast cancer since Jan 2017 and was very hopeful for a good outcome in the early days. I underwent surgery, then chemotherapy, then extensive radiotherapy and then spent a year feeling almost back to normal after all my treatment. I managed to go back to work as a nurse practitioner and pick up my life where it left off before the cancer. It was a tough journey and I was hopeful that I had been cured. It has been very difficult to come to terms with my new diagnosis and, but for the grace of God and my faith in a sovereign, loving and eternal God I don’t know where I would be.
Now I have had to retire from work due to ill health, I am missing my full and active life that I had before. So, I thought that now I have a much quieter life it would be good to start to share some thoughts about my faith in relation to my current circumstances. I hope that by sharing these thoughts they will be a blessing and encouragement to the reader.
I thought I would call my page “Love from Liz” as I will be sharing my faith in love for God and love for people. As you look out for my “Love from Liz” page, I hope you will be blessed by reading it.
