Terminal Judgement

This is a note from my memoirs:

My original Terminal diagnosis was that I would not live more than 5 years. That was about 8 years ago! For almost all of that first 5 years I believed that the diagnosis was accurate. This was confirmed not only by several Cardiologists, but by the continuous decline of my health. In the beginning, I had faith for a healing. In the final year, I began to thank God for the intimacy I had with Him, and decided to pray for His Will regarding my future. I have had the fortune (sometimes misfortune) of meeting people who were also terminally ill. Many of them were angry and bitter about their situation! I do NOT judge them. But… I’m thankful that God reminded me continually throughout my experience that EVERY person is “Terminal” in our finite existence! So, as I saw my Relatives, friend & strangers, I remembered their own Terminal condition, and tried to treat them as though this was the last time we’d meet. It was after I submitted “all” to God that He changed the circumstances of my life. I no longer consider myself “medically Terminal”, but realize I, like you am still VERY terminal!
