Today, we are very excited to announce that David is cancer free and done with chemo. We will toss the leftover pills in the trash, eat his meal of choice, have some cake and icecream, and give thanks. We give thanks to the Bridge Builder who has carried us across this long bridge. In the beginning of the journey, we weren’t sure the bridge would ever end. Kind of like the Golden Gate on a super foggyday. I wondered if the bridge would hold, worrying like there would be a 7.5 earthquake and we’d end up on the bottom deck of what felt like a double decker bridge. Through this journey, I have been challenged to give thanks to the Bridge Builder no matter what type of bridge I’m crossing, no matter what types of elements may affect it, knowing that He, Jesus, is enough. If He is all I have, He is what I give thanks for. And He IS enough. I pray that my life shows evidence of my stated belief that He is enough.
To you, our faithful followers and prayer warriors: thankyou. I wish I could send each and every one of you an old fashioned, snail mail card thanking you personally for your intercession for us. Here I'm thankful for Caring Bridge and Facebook. Many of you have traveled this journey with us and are unknown to us personally. Thank you. To our friends who have checked in regularly,thank you. To our family and friends who have loved us in our valleys, aided us financially, dropped yourself and come to our rescue, thank you. We could not have endured this trial without you. As Paul simply states in Philippians 1:2-3 “I thank God in all my remembrance of you.”
This journey isn’t completely over. The end of chemo is a major milestone that we celebrate today. The future holds blood checks and that ever present “history” of cancer. David will eventually have his port surgically removed. We will just continue to rejoice and give thanks for each day. God is always good, and we are always loved.
