Today was a wonderfully low key day! We slept late, the kids swam, Tim & I snuck away for lunch just the two of us, and we finished up with birthday/father’s day dinner with Tim’s side of the family.
Kayleigh felt pretty good today. We have swapped over to .5mg steroids in the morning and .5mg again in the evening and she has not mentioned a headache. Thank you Jesus! I am noticing her right eye is drooping much more often. That usually correlates to her fatigue level and she is certainly a bit more run down these days. Of course, if you ask her she is absolutely NOT tired.
This coming week we are planning to rest as much as possible and keep everything low key. As radiation continues Kayleigh will become more tired each week. Thankfully there are only 2 weeks remaining and she has done very well!
Please continue to pray with us for Kayleigh’s complete, miraculous healing. As we see the end of radiation on the horizon we can’t help but try to look to the future. We know that her healing can only be accomplished through God himself and we know that He is able. Our prayer is that He will see fit to grant our request. And we want as many voices as we can possible gather to be storming the gates of heaven with the same request, repeatedly, consistently, persistently.
So, while it would be easy to start worrying we are going to CHOOSE to not worry. God keeps reminding me that He’s got this. It’s my job to be still and let Him run the show. God is already doing amazing things before our eyes every day, answering prayers before we have a chance to realize what we need, and often times before we ask. It is obvious God has a plan and it is perfectly prepared and tailored just for us. That is what grants us peace.
The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.”
1 God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. 2 So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea. 3 Let the oceans roar and foam. Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! 4 A river brings joy to the city of our God, the sacred home of the Most High. 5 God dwells in that city; it cannot be destroyed. From the very break of day, God will protect it. 6 The nations are in chaos, and their kingdoms crumble! God’s voice thunders, and the earth melts! 7 The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us; the God of Israel is our fortress.
The God of Israel is our fortress… That pretty much covers it. We will not fear when the earth quakes. We will not fear when the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar – we will not be shaken – because we are rooted in God Almighty himself, the maker of heaven and earth. How thankful we are for our relationship with Jesus that affords us direct access to this amazing God. Cancer has no power here. Cancer cannot win.
No matter what you may be facing God is big enough to beat it. He may not answer your prayers they way you think they should be answered, honestly, He probably won’t – but that’s ok. In those circumstances make the choice to be thankful anyway. You can’t see the future but God can and He is moving all the pieces into place for your benefit and His glory.
We love you all and are so thankful to have you standing with us.
