Sitting at my baby’s side. Holding him. Whispering words of comfort. Hating the vomiting and stomach pain that has come on. The fear in his eyes every time a nurse or doctor comes in.
There’s no way to prepare a mother’s heart for this. I think of Mary, mother of Jesus. What a beautiful, precious calling. But what an incredibly difficult, unimaginably painful task she was given as she would one day stand at the foot of the cross. Her baby.
I know there is a GOOD purpose in every trial God’s children face. But doubt knows how to creep in right at those moments of sheer exhaustion. I’m choosing to ignore doubt and listen to the voice of truth.
“For we know that all things work together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
I am delighted by your faithful, relentless commitment to pray for us. I am reading all of your comments and encouragement. I appreciate more than you know. Grace be with you, my friends.

Continued prayers for Justin and ur family. What incredible strength u display with His help. Thank you for ur continued words of encouragement especially during this trying time.
Katie, please forgive me for not reading any you’re posts since Christmas. I had no idea what Justin, you and Jeff and family are going through. I will definitely be reading your posts as they come now. Dan and I will be praying for Justin’s chemotherapy to work and for God to give you new strength but until then lean on His strength. The “C” word keeps coming up too often. I am sorry that you and your family have to experience this.
Love and prayers. Pat Firrincili
