I would like to start a forum to meet other middle age or older women who have bc and love the Lord. Try to live your life for him, walk the walk and talk the talk. Of course we all fall from grace because we are human but we are covered by the blood of Jesus. Also this forum is for people who has a large enough vocabulary that they don't need to use profanity to explain theirselves. I will start.

I am posting before the last page so I won't forget what I want to say!
BulldogluvrBeck ... I, too, love bulldogs! it is something about that smushed in face. I grew up with Boston Terriers. Bull dogs require (usually) daily care - like washing in those wrinkles they are so famous for, eye problems and skin problems but well worth it. Our last Boston had his own opthalmologist!
My next dog, if I ever have them again will be a humongous pitbull. I LOVE those big 'blocky' heads.

Nancy ... I am so sorry about your friend. Cancer is a hidieous disease. It simply is not fair. My prayers for her family.
Glory ... if your avatar is a picture of you - no way you are 60! I feel petty much like you do - God has a plan for me and it must be pretty darn big because he keeps saving me from death. I'm starting to get scared!
I'm so glad I found BCO. Had I not I would definitely have been basket case. I love all my sisters and I am delighted they are in my life. All of you enrich my life. Thank you.

I have been reading this topic but not posting. I won't admit that I have been a 'perfect' Christian but who is? I was raised in church, baptized at 11, was active in the youth group as a young person, am active in the women's ministry, help teach the pre-schoolers, and sing in the choir. Sometimes I do have doubts about why I do what I do in the church, is is just habit or do I do it because it is what I truly believe. I do look forward to the 2nd coming of Christ when the dead in Christ shall be risen from the grave to life everlasting and those who remain in Christ shall be given life everlasting and the end of sickness, sorrow and death.

Hang on! We don't have to wait until the second coming to get everlasting life with Christ do we? I thought when I died in Christ that I would meet the Lord?

I don't want to get into a big discussion about what happens after death, but I believe in the sleep of the dead until the return of Christ. (eccle 9:5 living know that they shall die but the dead know not anything). That is why I was reluctant to join this topic since the beliefs of my church are opposite of what 95% of the Christian world believes. I think of death as a sleep, just like when you go to sleep at night, you don't know anything until you wake up, you have no knowledge of the passing of time until you look at the alarm clock to see what time it is. If my posts offend anyone I will remove them and not add anything else.

JO--Preach away! We all have to encourage each other in God's love and be reminded of His Word so that we dont fall away. That's why we need each other! I am sure we are all strong enough in the Lord to be gentle to each other's convictions. I love talking about God!
Sheila--I've been saved for 23 years(ish) and since BC, I have had doubts creep in here and there. What helps me the most so far is reading my Bible every day. Then I am reminded what I have believed in and it sets me back on track.
I just started reading Hebrews...here's one verse that stuck out to me today...
"And He is th radiance of HIs glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of HIs power." Hebrews 1:3a
Have fun today everyone!
