...is not easy.
...is what God has given us to live until He takes us home to be with Him.
The past few weeks have been pretty hard in our life. For awhile we thought we were possibly going to lose my brother. But God has richly blessed and it appears the chemo is working. He is getting stronger and has to do more chemo, but the doctor believes they can control (not cure), but control his cancer. We are praising and thanking God for that.
My sister is staying in his house right now as she is trying to recuperate from her sickness. We are still praying God will touch her eyes and bring her sight back to where she can drive and work again.
So while, all this is not over, I know God has given them both strength to walk this road and he has done the same for the rest of the family. Mom and Dad are doing pretty well and the rest of us "kids" are being blessed by God with strength and courage to help in any way we can.
While I do not like this road that God has us on, I do believe it is drawing us closer to each other and to God, and also making each one of us stronger in our faith. God has richly blessed my family and I know He will continue to do so in the ways that He sees best. I try to always remember Isaiah 55:8
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”declares the Lord.
I thank each one of you for your prayers and by God's grace I will be back here blogging a little more regularly. I have really missed you all.
