Cancer Tested Courage and Faith, A Shared Journey

High up on the mountain face the cold and fatigued mountain climber defied the voice of the wind howling. It screamed, let go, quit, just fall. But the climber drove his stiff finger tips into the small crack in the rock above his head, found a toe-hold, and pushed on up the mountain face to gain the summit. Cancer Tested Courage and Faith is His Journey.

The Climb, The Shared Rope

Sweat-soaked, breathless, and afraid, I left the easy terrain behind me along with my courage. Roped to my mountain climber above, my terror loosens my grip on our rope. The pack harnessed on my back is a burden too heavy for me to bear for what lies ahead. I look down. The ground below no longer the same.

I struggle to stay on the rope. Despair cuts into my grip. High above me I hear my mountain climber call down to me,” You must be brave.”

How will I stay on the rope in the midst of this nightmare in order to honor his one, “You must be brave?”

I feel strong hands gently cover my hands gripping the rope. I hear a soft voice. I see your trouble and despair. Let me take your burdensome pack. I will be your Sherpa and your brave on the climb ahead. Together we will care for your mountain climber to honor his one request, “You must be brave.”

OUR STORY WHEN CANCER TESTED OUR COURAGE AND FAITH. A LOVE STORY REALLY.
