Today is our ninth anniversary. Where did those years go? We were talking last night about all we have done in those short years. We've had the chance to travel to many parts of the US and been to Canada and China. We've been blessed with friends who have stood by us in the easy times and now in this difficult season. We met on a Christian online site and as they say, the rest is history. God brought us together and has helped us grow along the way. He gave us our beautiful daughter as well. As our wedding programs said, "This is the Lord's doing, it is marvelous in our eyes."
We do not understand why God has allowed Dennis to get brain cancer but we do know that He can be trusted now in a difficult time as much as He is trustworthy in good times. The year ahead will have its joys as well as the trials of fighting this disease but God will walk with us through it. On the days when it all becomes overwhelming, He will be there, of this we are confident.
Today Dennis gets his stitches taken out. We are also stopping by his workplace to say hi and have lunch with some of his co-workers. We hope to get up to Wisconsin Dells also. We spent the first two days of our marriage there and have a favorite place to eat up there. Not sure what else we will do. It depends upon how tired Dennis is at that point.
Keep praying. I pray specifically that as Dennis starts chemo and radiation soon that it will do get to the exact cells it needs to. We continue to wait and see what God has for us as we journey down this path.
