What has been given is not what we want, and it has been a bitter road to accept. Since the moment we heard it was cancer again, the cry of my heart has been to just see Jesus in this, to just know that He is here and with me, because I haven’t felt Him near.
What has been given is not what we want, but I also know that far and above what has been given us for this part of our journey, we have been given the gift of grace for every day to accept what comes before us.
And what comes before us?
Surgery looms, but we are grateful that the cancer did not spread into other organs.
Surgery looms, and it will be 3-5 days in the hospital, then recovery, and then…
Yes. Because of my young age and the nature of the cancer, they will want to treat it aggressively.
I don’t know many details beyond that. I will see my oncologist on Monday to discuss the specifics of treatment.
Surgery is July 18. They are moving quickly.
I am thankful for that. I am thankful for the hope of a full recovery from this horrible disease.
Our road ahead is long and hard.
Our children are fearful and grieving.
We are exhausted and hurting.
But we are bowing in acceptance. This is the road. We will walk it.
We accept and we know He is with us.
Will you pray for eyes to see Him?
