Anna Wasson Eyes On Jesus

First post: Aug 6, 2021 Latest post: May 20, 2024
Anna and Tim have been married since June 2004 and have 4 beautiful children: Cooper, Alayna, Callie,and Levi. On July 21, 2021, after a day in the ER, we were told that Anna had pleural effusion around her left lung, as well as a 3cm mass in the upper lobe. The doctor then said those words no one ever wants to hear: probable cancer. After the pleural fluid was tested, it was confirmed that Anna has adenocarcinoma; lung cancer. She’s never smoked in her life and has no other risk factors. Because malignant cells were found in the fluid, it was determined that her cancer is stage 4.
We are trusting God that He will take us through this and that Anna will still have many more years on this side of eternity. We don’t believe that God is done with her yet. We want to glorify Him throughout this journey. We covet your prayers for wisdom for her doctors and for healing.
Early on, Anna was reminded by one of her sisters of the passage from Matthew 14 where Jesus is walking on the water. Peter got out of the boat and began walking in faith on the water. He only began to sank when he took his eyes off Jesus and looked to the wind and waves. Later that SAME night, Levi was looking at a Bible story book, and unprompted, he exclaimed, “Oh, I love this story! This is where Jesus is walking on water and says, ‘Here, take my hand!’” We knew that God was giving us a gift in the form of a reminder: Eyes on Jesus. This has become our motto and it is the reason for the name of this page.
