Home Again!

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD,
 And He delights in his way.”
(Psalm 37:23 NKJV)

Pulling up to the driveway yesterday afternoon after work, it was so good to see Matt standing outside with his brothers checking out the used boat and motor his brother had just purchased. Being a typical male, his brother was sure this would cheer Matt up. He was probably right. For me, seeing Matt upright and at home was enough to bring cheer to my heart.
Do we have answers? Not really. We know where the problem isn’t — but we don’t know what actually caused the drop in Matt’s blood counts. For now, he’s stable and back home with us. We’ll count our blessings.
On Friday more blood work will be completed in an attempt to determine if possibly the problem is that Matt is not making enough red blood cells.  Monday we head back up to Rochester to see the oncologist for a re-evaluation after this most recent hospitalization. It’s still unclear whether his counts will permit him to have the second round of chemo previously scheduled for that day.
Our days may feel uncertain, and rightly so. We never know what the next day or week will bring. One thing that is unchangeable is our God to whom we cling. He is in control. He has ordered the steps that we are walking in. Proverbs 3:5 tells us to trust in the LORD with all our heart — and not to lean on our own understanding. We don’t have to understand. We don’t have to know what tomorrow may bring. We just need to keep trusting in our most trustworthy Heavenly Father.

    >Our prayers are with him on this journey. My wife just finished her rounds of chemo and was operated on in Boston the 14th of March. So we know what you are going through. Just keep positive, and trust.
