As you may know, Tim was diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer in November 2015. It has taken us a few months to come to grips with the reality of this intruder in our lives...and honestly, to be able to say the word cancer without getting emotional. Tim is participating in a clinical trial at Emory's Winship Cancer Center. He will be undergoing 6 chemo treatments over 12 weeks and surgery to remove the tumor sometime in May. Then he will have at least 16 more weeks of chemo. This is is not something we could have planned for but God was preparing us even before the doctors knew there was a tumor in his body. People wonder "What do you do when you get that kind of news?" No, we didn't go sky diving or Rocky Mountain climbing ;). There were tears and sleepless nights and some denial, but God's peace came in like a flood. We continue to experience God through quiet moments in His word, through favorite songs and especially through the encouragement of our church, our family and our friends. You have truly been the hands and feet of Christ to us and we are humbly grateful! Our next steps will be steps of faith, not because of what our eyes see but because of what our hearts know. God is good. He is for us and His promises will not fail. "It is because of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions do not fail. They are new every morning: GREAT IS YOUR FAITHFULNESS." Lamentations 3:22-23
