Music in my head today, “And I hear the voice of many angels sing, ‘Worthy is the Lamb’, I hear the cry of every longing heart, “Worthy is the Lamb’”
I join them in singing…
I’ve met a lot of cancer survivors over the past two days – I am counting myself among them!!!
It has been sweet to experience the Body of Christ in action, living as God intended, loving as God commanded:
Thursday a very dear friend called out of the blue. She had no idea what was going on in my life. She was calling to tell me that her breast cancer was back…we talked, cried, and laughed together. She has been down this road before. It was so good to hear from someone who understands what I am feeling and experiencing…
Later our good friend, Derek came to the house and hung out for a while – Derek is the kind of guy you can make cancer jokes with and he doesn’t freak out. Thank you, Derek, for letting me laugh with you. I needed to laugh.
Then my sweet friend Donald came by the house to finalize plans for the weekend services. What an incredible gift to have someone on my side who has walked this path before, who understands how Mark is feeling, and who is fiercely protective of us.
“He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us.” 2 Corinthians 1:4
I love all three of you. I feel like I am in a safe place. I know you have our backs. Thank you for living your faith for the world to see.
Shout out to Sydney, Chandler, and Bryce!!! Thanks for being there with me this weekend! I love you!
