Cancer has not taken away Oklahoma church member’s educational goal

The Oklahoman reports:

Rebecca Stafford looks down to a purple block with white letters on a quilt draped over her frail legs.
The 20-year-old, who was diagnosed with a bone cancer in 2009, begins to read the verse stitched into the quilt:
“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, But God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.” Psalms 73:26
What does that mean to her?
“It just tells me that God’s with me through everything, whether good, bad,” she pauses and smiles, then finishes with “or in between.”

Rebecca is the daughter of Christian Chronicle administrative assistant Tonda Stafford. The family attends the Memorial Road Church of Christ in Edmond, Okla.
