Moving on to Other Things
Over the past month I’ve been chronicling my journey through colon cancer and have found it both therapeutic and exhausting. Reliving the ordeal has affected me in a variety of ways. For one, it’s brought back the fears, the anxieties, the uncertainties, but in other ways it’s reminded me of God’s faithfulness, of all He’s brought us through.
Anway, all that to say . . . I need to take a break from it. Last Thursday I saw the oncologist for my six-month check-up and he said everything looks beautiful. After three years of clean tests and healthy reports, he feels comfortable saying I’m out of the woods. Words I needed to hear.
So I’ll move on to talking about other things, like the many blessings God has showered upon us these last three years. Blessings I never saw coming, blessings more than we ever thought or desired.
Someday I’ll get back to chronicling my journey, I know I will because I’d love to compile all my reflections into a book, even if it’s just for family and any friends who may be interested. Even if it’s just for my kids. May it serve as one of those memorial stones the Hebrews used to mark to remind them always, generation after generation, of God’s faithfulness and blessings.
Thank you all for trekking along with me as I relived the journey, for all your kind remarks and words of encouragement. You blessed me then and you bless me still.
I’m excited about my next book, Darkness Follows, releasing in less than a month (May 3). I finally caved and wrote a love story . . . but it’s a love story unlike any you’ve read before. And to welcome that book in there will be lots of new and exciting things happening so stay tuned here and to my Facebook stuff. I’ll also have a new Facebook fanpage up and running in the next few days so stay tuned for that and lots of great giveaways and events.
