Sea Billows

The doctors let me lie on the stretcher with Justin as they administered anesthesia. I held my boy and sang “Jesus loves me…” until he was asleep.

They are extracting bone and bone marrow from his tiny hip to be examined by an oncologist and a pathologist. The results will tell us if he has cancer.

We are waiting.

“When peace like a river attendeth my way; when sorrows like sea billows roll. Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say, ‘It is well with my soul’.”

I am at peace and in sorrow and so the sea billows roll.
