As I was driving home from my plastic surgeon's appointment yesterday, I realized that this journey over these past 20 months was nearing an end. In some ways, I felt like it was just yesterday that we heard those dreaded words, you have breast cancer, while in other ways it seems like a life time ago. When you are on a journey like this you always remember the beginning and the present steps you are taking, but you so often wonder, will this ever end? At times, I (we) felt so buffeted by the winds, we wondered if we could even catch our breath. Would I survive to really live again, not just exist, but live? Cancer brought so many changes with it and we never knew what to expect each time we encountered a new day. But I am here to let you know that I am the palm tree on the left and I have survived, stronger than ever. More determined to share the love of the Lord with everyone I meet--ready to see people come to "new life" in our precious Jesus. He is the only Hope that we have.

"I will praise you forever for what you have done; in you name I will hope, for your name is good. I will praise you in the presence of your people. Psalm 52:9

  1. Being a daughter-in love (that's what us daughter-in-laws are called in the Brown family) to Lynne, this is just a little something I would like to share. I never doubted that she would come through this journey with nothing less than "living "again. Maybe this is a reflection of her in me, of her faith that the Lord always knows what he is doing, just trust in him and everything else will fall in place.
    Being in the medical field, I knew what was to come after being diagnosed with breast cancer. I was devastated, scared and just plain mad! I wanted to make it all go away, I worried at every step, at every turn......why did this have to happen? I had no words, I just started praying and praying and watching. I watched and listened to Lynne and I began to see the Lord shine so bright through her that I had peace.
    So, thank you Lord for Lynne Brown, thank you for her life and the plans you have for her.
