Friday afternoon we received a phone call from the oncologist's office with the report of my six month PET scan - "All Clear!" That's exactly what I was expecting, but it sure was nice to hear them say it! I am six months removed from chemotherapy, and there is no evidence of disease in my body! I can't even put my feelings into words at this point!
Recently, I have been reading in the Old Testament, rereading some of the old familiar stories. I was studying the story of Noah the other day and read this verse:
"And God remembered Noah..." Genesis 8:1
Isn't that beautiful? God remembered Noah. He remembered. That would probably be a good memory verse for all of us! It’s pretty simple and we could change it to say, "And God remembered (insert your name)..."
"And God remembered Laura..."
That simple verse could change how we think about situations in our life, it could change our actions and responses to life. God remembers us! How amazing is that?!
And He sure remembered me this week! I'm pretty sure He was smiling, too, as the words "All Clear" rang out over the phone. He remembers me!
Thank you all for praying that we would hear those exact words!
