I felt a great amount of gratitude in my heart this morning as I was thinking about what this community of LumberJocks means to me and my family.
I wanted to let you all know that your encouragement, comments, private messages and kindness are helping me LIVE with cancer, rather than just DIEING from cancer!
I am stronger than when I started woodworking five months ago. I am motivated by you to get up and stay up as I make saw dust and even simply look at what you have done. I don’t sleep half of my life away any longer and I have energy that truly has my doctors amazed.
Being a Christian I can honestly say, “EACH OF YOU IS A GIFT FROM GOD IN ANSWER TO MY PRAYERS.”
You may not understand, but every time you take your valuable time to reach out to me and others, you are loving us. Jesus made it simple when He said in John 15:12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”
Christian or not, you are fulfilling God’s commandment as you reach out to me and to others on LJs or anywhere else in life.
Bless you all and THANK YOU from a grateful Newbie!
