Trust Part 5

Trust Part 5

“How does Shirley react to the news in 2013 of her cancer and 10% chance to survive? Disbelief numbs her. She talks and cries. She looks back over her life. In the small hours of the morning she decides. Then she phones: “Mum,” she says, “now it is time to cut my crap.” With impressive resolve she declares even more firmly, “I’m going to cut my crap and do it with God, Mum.” Holding the little wooden cross that lives on her bedside table she says, ” For me the big thing now is can I trust God? Because if I can trust Him I can believe everything He’s now promised me. I can stand on His promises.” And that’s exactly what she decides to do. Fear makes it a struggle but much of the time she does just that.
(From my book, “Mum please help me die”)
