TODAY IS FILLED WITH PRAISES!

TODAY IS FILLED WITH PRAISES!
Before the doctors came in on rounds,
it was an especially gorgeous sunrise,
with bands of color across the horizon.
Even more spectacular,
than yesterday’s golden glow.

Good news from The Pathology Report.
A clear CT scan.
Minimal air around the lungs.
Nothing showed up on the x-ray.
Going home.

Staples out today.
Hemoglobin OK.
I am crying tears of Joy.
Why do we doubt,
when God is so good?
He has this under control.
He’s showing us,
step by step,
I have this.
Trust Me.
But we doubt.
We worry.
We fret.
Well, I do.
Even when He gives us
the gift of a sunrise
in vivid hues
to say, “I Am Here”.
Thank you, God.

It’s your prayers.
All of them.
Each and every one.
We are so overwhelmed
with the power of them,
as God keeps moving mountains
from our path.
He hears them.
He answers.
In His time.
In His way.
God is good.
All the time.
How Great Is Our God!

Love and thankfulness
for each of you,
for walking so closely with us
on my husband’s journey
through cancer,
from diagnosis
to survivor,
is our prayer.
TODAY IS FILLED WITH PRAISES!

    Thank you for reading this Praise Filled post, Nicolas. Honestly, it's good for me to get the notification and re-read it myself. God is good. All the time. This is the lesson I am learning through my husband's battle with cancer. It's not an easy road but the prayers of many are helping us walk this road. Together. With His help. The other lesson I'm learning is, "It's going to be OK", whatever the ultimate outcome. Though this one is harder for me to embrace, because I don't want to think about cancer taking him before we've lived out a long life together and seen our children graduated and married and met our grandchildren and great grandchildren together. because I'm greedy like that. One day at a time. Lesson number three in this journey. I can't make far off plans, as in next week even. One day at a time. For it is enough, to live in today. ~ Janean

  7. That´s right Janean. It´s never too late to live in the present.
