|But at Peace|
It's 1am in the early morning and I can't sleep. I believe it's due part in parcel due to worry about Andrew's transplant journey starting this morning at 6:30am at Northwestern Memorial Hospital for total body radiation. Worry is juxtaposed with peace. Sounds funny, huh? How can one be worried and peaceful at the same time? Well as a parent, I am worrying for my son who will be subjected to intense chemo and radiation, which will ravage his already racked body by multiple rounds of chemo, in preparation for his bone marrow transplant, but I know deep inside, God has his back.
I have shared the following verse in my blogs at various times and it continues to give me a modicum of peace in the midst of the "storms":
Moreover, I am comforted with what Jeremiah 29:11 states:
Please refer to the last blog for specific prayer request. Also, pray for our new friends the Lim/Park's.
Pray for their son, Connor, who has started the pre transplant process in preparation for his bone marrow transplant, which will happen the day after Andrew's bmt, also at Childrens. To keep up with Connor's journey click: http://connorbmt.blogspot.com/
