We have been busy, busy bees around our household this Thanksgiving break. It is partly out of necessity to get our house organized and ready for christmas. Last year my Mom and Grandmother decorated our house while we were in the hospital to have it festive for our return home. This year we have gone all out because....
Mike has organized closets, random drawers, our movies, etc.... I think we are both just trying to stay busy to keep calm about he scan Friday. We are both nervous and scared but we trust in God's plan for our family. It is gut-wrenching to think that the beast called cancer could have crept back into our boys' sweet body and it rearing its ugly head again. We are also always nervous about his kidney function. We covet your prayers for David on Friday.
I was doing okay staying busy and enjoying the kids until church this morning. Our worship minister led us in some amazing worship and I was just overcome. Jonathan gave the congregation a chance to pray at the altar and I found myself sobbing at the altar. We are so thankful how far God has brought us and we trust Him with our family, but it is hard to not be scared. Cancer is such an ugly beast.
One of the songs that I have played over and over and over again this holiday weekend is Chris Tomlin's O Come All Ye Faithful. The last lines of the song "we will praise your name forever" give me cold chills everytime. No matter what the CT scan says this Friday we will continue to praise Jesus' name forever.
