MD Anderson - Ring-a-Ding

Yesterday I escorted my bride down to MDA for her last chemo treatment!  Praise the Lord!
It wasn’t simple, because her regular doctor was on maternity leave; so we had a fill in.  Which means his patients came first and our appointments were later in the day.  All that said, she started chemo in the main building at 8:30 last night.  At 10:30 they moved us to another floor because that portion of MDA closed at 11.  She finally finished about 11:45 and we left around midnight.
BUT, she is done with the chemo!  In some places they have a bell to ring on your last chemo, but we did not have one on the 2nd floor.  That was probably a relief for Felicia because I had planned on banging and clanging on that thing, even if she wouldn’t!
Someone had told us God has a plan and that we should not waste her chemo.  Gods plan was to affect someone’s life by her words and walk.  I just never knew it was going to be mine….
My bride has walked steady with Christ through all the ups and downs that come along with chemo, I couldn’t be prouder to call her my wife.  I have seen her faithful and upbeat, with never a complaining word.  I believe her heart is completely His.

2 Chronicles 16:9 "For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His."
I saw something posted today that reminds me how we are to approach life as move on the next mile of this road:
Romans 5:3-5 "More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us."

As with most Christians who have been down this road before us can attest, your life will never be the same.  Your relationship with Christ is different becasue He is that hope you cling to even more.  You are reminded how fragile our stay on this earth is and how sure the strength of Jesus is. 

I say it again, I am so proud to call Felicia the mother of my children and my wife.  Praise the Lord, He has truly blessed me!
