facing grief

No news is good news?

StrongThe CAT scan was today. We have no results as yet- they said it would be a few days before we would know. So now we wait. 

We’ve been so amazed by the love and prayers sent our way these last few days. What at first seemed heavy and foreboding has turned to one of amazement and peace at the "family" gathered around. I am so glad we are not walking this alone.

It feels strange to have the tables turned. I remember being deep in prayer for a Pea friend, Jennifer Gallagher, as her son was taken from them suddenly by a very aggressive cancer. I remember praying not but a few weeks ago for Christine’s husband, also taken by cancer. And now I am the one requesting the prayers and walking the darkened halls at night. I am so amazed and so blessed by the 2peas community yet again as I watch them gather around me as we have done for those before. So blessed. How amazing are these women whom I have never met in person, that they would stop their day for a second to reach out across the miles for a friend? No matter what the diagnosis- whether it is or isn’t cancer- I don’t think James and I will ever be the same. I don’t know what the future holds for us, but right now, I want to live and breathe in this day. To dwell in now. In God’s hands. In the arms of my husband. The rest will come.

{ I love this picture of James- it’s such a quintessential strong "Daddy" picture!}

    We have been praying for someone who recently found out that he has cancer. I referred to him the other day while blogging because he’s been on my mind so much. He is the father of a very close relative and even though it’s not in my house, it’s still very close to home.
    I am praying with your family for perfect health and peace and strength as you wait for the results, friend.
    I am thinking of the verse in Isaiah 26:3,4.
    “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
    Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.”

Tell me what's on your heart~
