This Time, God Said, “Yes.

Anne, at Broadway Plaza, Arlington

How many times can I say, “Thank you, God!”  Alva and I were led to Dr. Sol Akbani, my oncologist/hematologist at Arlington Cancer Center, Arlington, TX, in response to prayer.  Today, after  carefully studying the new CT Scan and blood tests. He turned to look at me with a big smile on his face as he announced, “The cancer is gone!”  Staring at him, I said, “What???”  He repeated, “The cancer is gone!”

What lies ahead?  Well, 4 hour chemo infusions on August 9 and 30th.  The day after each chemo there will be a 3 hour Rutuxin infusion to build new, healthy bone marrow.  Also, blood tests will be made every week, and a PT Scan on Aug. 16.

If God wills, late September will find me in Romania.  Maybe there are outstanding Cancer Clinics in Europe where I can get the follow up treatments.  If not, there will be trips back to Arlington Cancer Center on Randol Mill Rd. for checkups.  God will work all of that out according to His will.

Why did God heal my body, but does not heal some others?  I don’t know.  But as Paul said in Philippians  1:21, 23, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain….I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far.”  In 2 Corinthians 5:1, Paul says, ” For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.”

One thing that I have learned from all of this is that I can truly trust God, and that ALL that matters is that God’s will be done.  (I knew that, but my “human nature” chooses to forget that sometimes.)  Thank you for your support through prayer, visits, cards, FB messages, and continuing financial support of God’s Children’s work in Covasna County, Romania.

Love in the Master’s service,
