I Never Knew

A couple of years ago a friend of mine encouraged me to start a blog. "Not interested." was my quick reply. But after more prompting from Gina and others, I opened the blog January of 2010.

I started thinking it would be a great outlet for a book I am working on 'I Could Be Holy If I Weren't So Human', thus the name.

I never knew I would be using it to give updates on my sweet husband's cancer treatments.

What we thought was a bad case of strep throat was actually stage three viral carcinoma in his right tonsil and inside his neck. To say we were shocked would be an understatement.

If you know me, you know I am a planner. So, we have a plan.

Plan A: God gives us a complete miracle. Psalm 103:3 He heals our diseases!

Plan B: We have a PET Scan on April 15, get results on April 18 to see how far the cancer has spread, and then have surgery on April 25.

Isaiah 55:9 So are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.

So if God's best plan is for us to walk through this and experience His loving hands through medical professionals we'll take it.

Lance and I agree - whatever brings God the most glory will be for our betterment.

God knew we would need a joyful distraction. Nothing could be better than a new grandbaby. Our daughter, Megan, and her husband Kyle, gave us Lillian 'Lily' Katherine. I'm sure we will get a call from Mr. Clean at any moment. She can magically erase any sadness or self-pity with just one sweet sigh and a snuggle.

Thank you, Jesus. You know how to bring healing in even the smallest of packages.
