It is Monday March 25, 2019
This morning I got up, ate breakfast and headed off to the hospital. It is happening! This morning was such a raw moment. The surreal became real. Although not beyond the level of possibility in my mind, I just did not envision cancer as part of my life story at this point in my life. But that all changed today.
I am thankful for the past number of days where I was able to give my emotional responses to my Lord . Waiting has been the hardest part up to this point. Now the waiting is over and the wondering about what is going to happen to my body begins. I am so thankful for Jesus Christ and his ongoing presence in my life. His Spirit is carrying me through the challenges. I am asking for fruit of the Spirit during this time – joy, peace, patience. Today those prayers started to be answered. The prayers of God’s saints are being answered. So grateful.
And in honour of my Dookies and Zion’s blowout I bought myself a new pair of shoes. I am calling them my “cancer kicks” – got to have a sense of humour.
