I’m not sure where to begin…. To say the very least, the last few weeks have been some of the most frightening and frustrating of my life. Right now it seems like there are a lot more questions than answers and the answers we have aren’t great. The crazy and truly humbling part is that these have also been some of the most beautiful weeks I’ve ever known. In my whole life I’ve I have never seen a more amazing outpouring of love and support than I have since my diagnosis of CMML. Our church family has come out of the woodwork to express their concern and love and to offer to walk with us and help us as we embark on this journey. I have always known First Waycross to be a loving church but it is simply overwhelming to behold as Lesley, Emma, Sara, and I find ourselves on the receiving end. I don’t know how to write this without sound artificially pious but here goes…. No matter how this journey fleshes out, TO GOD BE ALL GLORY AND HONOR. That is the best and possibly the only way to rightly say, Thank You. Thank You to everyone who has been praying for our family. That is truly the most beautiful and meaningful gift in the world. Thank you to those who have called and written to give beautiful words of encouragement. Thank you to those who have done things in material ways to help us out. They are all simply overwhelming. In this moment it’s hard to say what the future has in store but this I know... My God is in control and that thought brings amazing comfort and joy. I know that I am not unique in so far as many of our church family have traveled this road before me and sadly there will be folks who follow. With that in mind, what a wonderful consolation it is to consider that they have been and will be loved by God, through our church family the same way our family has. Again, thank you for all of the love! It means more than words can say.
