Postcard from the Last Treatments

Greetings from this Sunny Clime!
Here we are counting down 4-3-2-1 and then we’re finished with radiation! Jerry and I often discuss how at times it seemed like we’d never be done, and yet in another way, the time has flown. Oh, how grateful we are.

We pause now to give thanks for God’s abundant provision, the use of a friend’s condominium in the treatment center area, unexpected gift cards in the mail, another friend who provided many meals and for much love and encouragement from our church and family.

We’re just days away now from turning a page.

Yet we linger here for we’re so aware of the silver lining in what have seemed almost constant storm clouds for almost a year. God’s love and mercy seem to envelop us, and we stand in his presence full of gratitude for his Grace. We’re thankful for some very special relationships we’ve developed because of Jerry having this treatment, which I hope, will continue past the duration of the treatment.

When we’re finished, there will be other challenges. But we rest confident in the words he gave us when we started this journey, “…in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” And remain confident that God is using and will use this time in ways we cannot even imagine.

P.S. If it seems like I just wrote something like this a few days ago, I did. I just can't stop expressing my thanks to God for all he's doing.
