Wow! Someone changed my profile picture. That's funny! But that picture of whoever that is sure doesn't look a thing like me!

Dee, I would love nothing more than for everyone to be a Christian and to know God. There is no "free will". We do not choose God. He chooses us. He chose us through predestination. If you have freewill, how can God be sovereign over your life? If God has planned your salvation and planned to save you, predetermined to call you, and chose you to before earth existed, how can you still have freewill? How can freewill fit into the framework of God’s sovereignty and God’s predetermination to save us? Just look what God planned for you before the earth even existed: God had planned you even before you were born or before you were in our mother‘s womb (Jer. ...

Really Dee?? Wow! obviously your comment was meant to hurt me. But no, it only made me realize what ignorant and mean people there are in this world. I pray to God every day., and He hears my prayers. I also have patience while waiting on Him to answer my prayers. I have the patience because he give it to me. I pray that one day you find peace and meaning to your life. Answer me this, since you're so creative with your words, WHAT exactly do you believe in? And WHY do you believe in what it is that you bueve in? Do you even know what you're purpose on earth is? Surely

Ginger, I'm not mad, and yes, I was being defensive, because people were saying things that I had said that I never said. I think I have that right to defend myself against wrongful words. We all do. You asked me if I "had" cancer. Yes, I did, but am now in remission. Whether I'm in remission or not, that's beside the point, because I do know what it's like living with cancer. I've been there. And, please tell me where I was "preaching" in my comments? I have an honest question for you. I'm not trying to be impertinent or sagacious at all, but you said "I would never preach to someone on how ...

First of all, Ginger, yes, I did have cancer. If you had read before your post accusing me of not having had cancer, then you would have seen that. Don't jump on me when you haven't even taken the time to read all the comments! i am in remission. Now that Ginger has been redirected, let me get something straight here. I am NOT lamblasting anyone for their faith. I'm just stating that there is only one God. And NEVER did I say that God plays favorites, Forever Nana. Where did I say that someone's "faith wasn't strong enough"? I AM a Christian, and like I said earlier, I depended on my God to get me ...

Hey Susan, I can't even imagine having metastatic breast cancer. I'm a 7 year survivor, and I still get nervous every 6 months when I go in for my checkups, blood work, and tumor markers. I imagine you are a strong person, and I can't tell you to "stay positive", because if it were me I'm not sure I would! Cancer is scary anytime, but for me the scariest was thinking I'd be leaving my 5 and 10 yr old without a mother. I depended on the ONLY God to get me through cancer, and through many people praying for me, He did. There is only one true God, and that is our Heavenly Father. I pray that one ...

First of all Susan Farris, I understand your "what if" state of mind, and I'm not here to give you a lecture on how you should feel, but I am going to say that our Lord and Savior can, and will, take away any kind of anxiety from you if you'll just ask Him. You have to know, intellectually, that "knocking on wood" is not going to keep your cancer from coming back. You are allowing a piece of wood to determine what your cancer is going to do?? I can promise you that talking to God, who loves you in every circumstance, is the only way you're going to get any kind of peace and rest. I ask that ...

Weight Gain After Treatments

I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductusl Carsinoma in 2007. I had chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and was on Tamoxifen for only a year due to swelling in my feet, ankles, and knees. Chemo put me in early menopause, and it hasn't been fun at all! My biggest issue isn't the hot flashes or sleepless nights, it's the weight gain I've had. I've gained close the 60 lbs. It's killing me! I can't lose the weight, and I get so frustrated because no matter how much I cutout and exercise I still can't lose the weight. My breast cancer was hormone receptor positive, so I can't take any type of estrogen. Is there anyone out there
