And Joy Comes in the Morning
Thank you all for your sweet responses to the last post...I know it was heavy. I am happy to report that we have come through several days of sadness and confusion into a place of peace and rest. We have been in touch with the father of another girl with Neuroblastoma, and his words of encouragement are still ringing in our ears. His advice was the same as what God Himself has impressed upon our hearts many other times, and that is to take each day as it comes, pray, and wait for the leading of the Lord in that moment. This father's exact words were that it is a "gradual unfolding of His will..." and this struck such a cord with us because that is already how God has been working. We don't need to know the answers ahead of time...just stay close to the side of God and wait for His unfolding. This morning we awoke without the elephant sitting on our chests...and today there was joy! We are so thankful for the words of this kind stranger who was somehow not a stranger at all...he has been there, and is still there in the trenches along with us. Thank you all for your concern and for going down the valleys with us...and up the mountains.
