HOME

We are finally home after 5 months in Seattle. It is surreal. I already see the effect that our home is having on the girls. They are thriving and I'm reminded of how essential it is to have a home - a safe haven of rest and restoration. As I think of such things, something deep in me rejoices that we are only sojourners on earth waiting for that wondrous day when we really get to go HOME.




Your prayers were our lifelines. If saying "thank you" was enough, we'd want to paint it in the sky so the whole world would see. But we know that no amount of thanks could ever cover the amount of love that was poured into us. Your support was immeasurable and we are filled with wonder at how love and prayers pulled us through the darkest night.

"Even the darkest night will end, and the sun will rise." -Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

So I have followed Ava from the beginning of this whole thing. I also suffer from chronic illness and one that I have pride in is my appearance and feeling beautiful even though I feel bad. I know that the steroids have taken a toll on her and her body and self body image. Maybe if it is the one things that makes her unhappy during this whole battle is to get the excess hair removed or bleached. I know she is young but it is also a constant reminder of the cancer. Not to mention it would boost her self confidence.

We sang this at my church yesterday and it made me think of you all. We are thankful that you are back home and for His faithfulness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ix6gJcl04Y
