This Day Arrived

On February 13, 2013 I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, cancer in my lymph nodes, and on September 16, 2013 I was granted remission. If you would have asked me  back in February if I thought I would ever get to this day, I am not certain, in the shock of those early moments, I would have believed this day would arrive. In February this day seemed so far away. During my panic attack that night I wasn’t certain I was going to make it. I knew the Lord had revealed to me that this would be a “journey for His glory,” but I could not see the light in the tunnel.

It is such an emotional blur to think back to February. As I have really processed things today it is amazing that I have been sick for a little over a year – my first lump showed up on September 7th. Today I am so thankful. I can proudly proclaim the truth I have know in my heart for quite some time – I am CANCER FREE because Jesus Christ is Lord and a mighty, mighty healer! Remission is such a powerful word.

Glory to God!

Glory to God!

Clearly, Roy is a little bit happy about the results…

Pure Joy!

Despite our fantastic news of the day, it was amazing to see the destruction of the rising flood waters 120 miles from the source. Sterling and the surrounding areas are really being impacted by the raging river. It is such an opportunity to pray. Thank you Lord for reasons to lean on You!

A local family. A local business. A local prayer opportunity.
