God is good, ALL the time
As most of you know my neice, Kaelyn Adams, was diagnosed today with T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). She is a beautiful, precious child of God who has more faith than my entire family combined. She has been sick on and off for the past two months and has been in and out of the doctor with diagnosis after diagnosis. It wasn't until they identified a large mass in her chest that they suspected cancer, but as soon as they found this they sent her immediately to St.Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN. That is where I am now, sitting in a hotel room waiting for my 2 year old nephew to wake up from a nap. I have become his keeper in the last two days, but I'm loving every minute of it!
This is a nightmare for our family, but through it all I am reminded of one thing. Although this fallen world brings us suffering that is sometimes unbearable, we rest in savior who brings healing and hope of eternity to our hearts. The more I hear about unfaithful marriages, murders, and sweet children with cancer, the more I thirst for eternity with my savior.
Long story short, please pray for my family, for kaelyn's doctors, and for Kaelyn. But also remember to have heaven always on your mind.
