A Very Present Help

A day at clinic in photos: Another round of chemo. Justin’s support team. A playroom with IV poles and bags of poison. Me trying to make it all fun or, at least, just more tolerable. A look at Justin the day after clinic. And Buddy being a faithful nap friend.

Not pictured: me and two nurses holding Justin down as he was repeatedly stuck with a needle for his IV placement. Also not pictured: me sending Luke and Michael out of the room to save them from being potentially traumatized; then pleading with God for help while we took a necessary break. Also not pictured: the Holy Spirit, who, indeed, calmed Justin and worked through myself and Justin’s nurse to get the job done.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1
