When Light Meets The Dark

early morning light xx - Copy

It was that time again–time to travel the 160 miles to the medical center for my husband’s cancer check-up with his oncologist/hematologist.

We left yesterday morning while it was still dark.

The darkness of uncertainty always covers us as we travel east for his appointments but the sun coming up yesterday was a reminder that God’s light would already be there to meet us when we got to the hospital.

Yesterday we received a great report from his doctor.  Bob is still responding well to the chemo drug without side effects.  He has another appointment in August and if the markers of the Leukemia in his blood reach a certain target level he will not need another bone marrow biopsy.

So we travel and trust and we know that no matter what the outcome will be in August the light of God’s presence always goes with us and before us.

We are never alone.

  2. That is great, Nancy. As a cancer survivor myself I pay particular attention to stories like these. May the Lord bring your husband and you through this challenge. You are absolutely correct that we are never alone. Praise God.

    1. Bonnie, We are so grateful. God is good, faithful and always has our best in mind. One day at a time..that’s true for all of us. We look to people like you and Tom for inspiration as we have watched you two depend on Him through your own trials. Love and God’s blessings to you two. Hopefully this comment landed in the right spot. My replies to this post are landing all over the place and not posting right.
