Sam and I are so thrilled that her neutrophils are up to .7 and today she starts Part 2 of the Induction Stage of her treatment.
These past 45 days have been amazing, challenging and encouraging. Our days together have been tremendously precious. What an honour it is as a Mum to watch your daughter stand strong in faith every moment despite all opposition. Her smile has captivated everyone we meet and the favour of God is everywhere.
It seems we meet people everywhere in this hospital who know us! From Specialists to trolley boys, we stop to catch up with these people who were unknown to us prior to 28th January!
So many miracles surround us! So many thank you cards still wait to be written.
~ Psalm 23:5 ~
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
We have never in our lives been so well-fed! Every meal that has been delivered has been exquisite. Not to mention the cakes, cookies, banana breads. Our garden is being transformed, our clothes line is erect, my lawns are mowed, my dog is walked, my house is cleaned, Sam’s bedroom is painted and fresh fruit and veges are delivered every week!
It is almost as if life has never been so good!…except for the Leukaemia.
It doesn’t end there either. We have been given vouchers for movies, for books, for a facial, for a meal at a restaurant and so many have generously helped us with cash.
In spite of this incredible provision, I do desperately look forward to returning to work and the crazy life of Kindergarten.
Thank you, Paula for teaching my class,
thank you OFGS for holdings our jobs,
thank you to all the pastors and team at C3 for not only praying but also providing us with practical help and
thank you everyone for standing with us, for praying and for believing!
We still have a long road ahead of us and some days are harder than others but people like you make the load bearable. God’s eternal purpose shines over us and I hold close Ecclesiastes 3:11-14 (the scripture that all our beloved congregation in Chatswood often heard me speak from) that…
He has made everything beautiful in His time.
He also has put eternity in men’s hearts and minds
[a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages
which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy]…
I know that whatever God does it endures forever;
nothing can be added or taken away from it.
And God does it so that men will reverently fear Him
[and worship Him knowing that He is]
~ Ecclesiastes 3:11-14 ~
