As spring continues to overwhelm us with its beauty and newness of life so does God continue to put me in awe with his faithfulness and love. I am happy and blessed to say that with just one more round of chemo to go my dad begins his journey to remission. These past six months have been a whirlwind of emotion, confusion and uncertainty. Why does my dad have to have cancer again? Why him? Why now? I may never know the answer to these questions, but I am certain that his body has been touched and healed. He feels good, looks good (shaved head and all!) and most of all his attitude and faith humbles me to the core . I am so thankful to have a father who looks at life as a gift. And I hope to always be reminded of all the good that can fruition out of a difficult season.
Thank you everyone for all of your prayers, emails, encouragement and for loving on me and my family. We are so grateful to have such amazing support! Most of all I praise the Lord for "hearing my cry, lifting me out of the mud and mire, setting my feet on a rock and giving me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth and a hymn of praise in my heart" -Psalm 40:1-3
As I walk around my neighborhood in awe of the beautiful flowers and breathtaking sunsets I stand blessed and thankful.
