Many of you may be feeling discouraged that the good news of no bone marrow transplant has turned to news of yes, indeed, I will need one. Some reading I did this morning helped me with perspective, I hope it helps you if you need to hear it…Remember. God is not surprised by anything and He is in charge.
“Attaching our well-being to a particular action or outcome is risky. In essence, we make that situation a kind of higher power when we give our power over to other people or circumstances. At any moment, a turn of events could dash the dreams and plans upon which we’ve built our lives. Life is far too uncertain for such misplaced faith. By seeking only the knowledge of God’s will for us and the power to carry that out, we make great strides toward developing an unshakeable inner peace and sense of security that cannot be threatened by mere circumstances”
Unless my circumstances change, I will go to the hospital in Springfield tomorrow until monday or Tuesday for more chemo. Round 1. Send the prayers! love you all.
