Course in Miracles



In 1987 I started having breast milk suddenly.  My daughter was born in 1982 so this was a bit strange, to make a long story not too short, after blood work that showed nothing, 6 mths later my reg md sent me for a cat scan and there was the tumor on pituitary.  Several tests and lots of appts later, they finally got the first MRI machine installed in our city at the hospital , so I was "lucky" enough to have the first one.  But before that happened I had to have a arteriogram done on my brain to rule out an aneuroysm, While I was in the basement of the hospital (Radioology was down there)  I was in my fashionable gown(ha, note the sarcasm) and there wa a knock on the door, a nurse said I had a guest and would I see him.  It was a friend of mines' husband who was a preacher and I of course would see him.  He said he wanted to pray with me before my test.  During this prayer he requested "that from this moment on, the doctors would not find anything wrong and that whatever I had would be taken from me"  Well , I felt like the hospital opened up in this cone shape opening that came straight to my head.  No lights, no noise, my eyes were shut, just this feeling of warmth and peace.  Well that test showed no aneuroysm, but the dr's were only doing it to rule out anyway.  But weeks later when I finally had the first MRI done in Beaumont, Texas...The Tumor was gone.  Vanished.     Blessed.  I was Blessed.  So many prayers were being said for me and I got to know the exact moment they were answered!!!!  I still get chills today telling the story!  I use every oppurtunity to share it.  And it continues to bless me every day.  Now you would think that was the end of story.  But No it is not.

Years later, in 2005 I had to have back surgery and found out I have a major birth defect in my neck.  Two of my vertabrae only formed half way leaving my spine partially exposed AND my cervical neck is growing backwards and is now pressing on my esophagus, causing yet another swallowing issue.  But I was having some really major pain in my neck and spasms.  My neurologist in Houston wanted to do some type of shots, and asked about my history.  I mentioned the tumor and how it had disappeared and how I had had numerous MRI's since but it was gone.  He was glorified in my story, but still wanted a new MRI before he could do the shots.  So I appeased him!! But guess what?  I got a phone call and There was a new one.  In the exact same spot.  Now some may say it had never left and was hiding.  But I know that with so many multiple MRI at so many different facilities one of them would have showed in 17 years!  And I have numerous doctors that will attest to that as well.  I believe it was for the naysayers!  The ones that doubted that I had the first one.  (One Radiologist in '87, said it was probably just an artifact in the film or part of my sinus in the brain).  Now, most would say, "pray it away again"  but in my prayers, God choose for me to have it removed this time and led me to an excellent surgeon.  Maybe as proof that yes after a 5 hour surgery there was in fact a tumor there.  

Miracles happen everyday.  Not little ones!  Great Big, Big ones!  My belief is that people just don't share them.  And some don't recognize them! And some Call them Science, Fate or Karma. But NO ...they are miracles!  Jesus walked on water and he removed my tumor!! Miracles!!  We see them everyday , but people won't acknowledge them.  The fact that we are even conversing over thousand of miles. God gave knowledge to people. Miracles!  And the world does not give HIM the credit.  He gave you and me the blessing of finding a friendship!  Because we are believers, he used this illness of ours to a greater good.  To spread his word.  GOD literally used YOU a few hours ago to reach out to me and gently shake me... to remember his Miracles.  Thank You Jesus.  As tears fall, I am grateful.  I am free again to shake off this gloom and spread his word. And to spread some cheer. And that is who I am.

Thank you, Thank you,  for telling me your miracle!! You let God work thru you and help me.
I will be praying for you.  Praying that yet another miracle will bring healing and peace to your body and mind.  I know it will happen.  And I know that maybe your mission is like mine.  That you need to tell others of your miracle!! Maybe he is using me to in return tell you to Go Tell It From The Mountain!!!!!

God is my Strength and Salvation!!! I will go forward as a stronger person.  Renewed and Enpowered!!

When my doctor asked me the question "what would I do or think if they could not find an answer or there was not a pill that would help me"....I answered to her... "I have God and I have Prayer" .  She smiled at me and nodded!!  
I didn't recognize him then, but I sure do now!!!     Why  did I put that part away?,  I would have to say the devil was trying to pull me into depression.  But with you and God, you both reached out your hand and pulled me back out!!

Blessings,    -sass-

yes, we just have to remember that when we turn it over to him that we can't take it back.  hard to do, but it should be easy

Never lose site of hope; without hope there's no chance for optimism.
