Without going into great detail, my dear in-laws have moved in with us. Their addition to our household has brought joy and blessings to our family. My children are such attentive servants, and they are being given the opportunity to learn a valuable character building lesson. Their grandparents are leaving a mark on their little hearts that will stay with my children for their lifetime.
Almost three weeks ago, my sweet mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. The news was shocking to us all. I don't think I've ever cried so hard, nor have I questioned "why" so much. My mother is one of the most healthy people I know. She eats great, exercises, never smoked a day a day in her life and has never done anything harmful to her body. I never imagined I would be going through this with her ever, especially at such a young age. I trust the Lord and His healing. I know my mom has been washed in an unexplainable peace that only God can give. I praise the Lord that she is a Christian and, even though the diagnosis may look grim, she knows God has the power to heal and save and to give her long life. I pray she will be with us here on the earth, for many years to come.
I believe she will be healed. And I believe it is the Lord who has granted her peace and grace. I know that through all of this, God will receive ALL the glory.
After battling a stomach bug that has lasted over two weeks, and dealing with the emotional roller coaster of my family members, I think I am finally ready to tackle life again.
If you think of us, pray for us. My parents, my in-laws, and my family.
I promise this will be the beginning to posting here again. I am grateful for all of my readers and those who are willing to stand in the gap for our family.
