The Lord said, “I have loved you with an everlasting love, I have drawn you with loving-kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3. We all appreciate love and kindness from others. It can make a dull day brighter. As I reflect back on the time I was a cancer patient one thing that stands out was the overflowing amount of love and kindness others gave me. I really don’t think I could have made it through without it. From people sending me cards, making me homemade blankets, giving me scarfs and hats; to countless numbers of people praying for me, these things lifted me up. They helped me fight the fight! As I think of the YANA ministry, I think of kindness; God’s people helping lift up a cancer patient. This is our job, this is our gift, and this is God’s spirit helping others.

I’m blessed to be a part of this ministry and I thank God for His kindness.

Colossians 3:12 “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.”
