Waiting to Hear Results

Brad had a CT scan last Friday at Methodist hospital. We will pick up the CD and take the reports to Germany with us next week when we meet with Dr. Thaller. While I would usually feel very anxious, waiting to hear the results of the tests, the unknown has actually brought me a lot of comfort. It allows me to drift into the world of possibility without the confrontation of what may not be good news. It allows me to remember who God is, and to revel in this moment a little while longer. I am at peace in waiting.

Please pray for our upcoming travel this weekend. Brad, Bryan Hanna & I will be leaving Saturday evening to land in Munich on Sunday afternoon. I pray that Brad travels comfortably and that we arrive on Monday morning at the clinic without any difficulties. Thank you for your prayers.

God bless you all as you travel and as you meet with Dr. Thaller. You have given me a new perspective on "waiting." I will continue to pray for all of you.

I think I know exactly what you mean - finding rest in the possibility of good news. I have felt that way before. I do hope you receive a wonderful report!

Jenny I have wanted to post to you for a long time now and I found your blog at last. I am in Mumbia India with my daughter Debra. She will be having surgery here on Monday. I just want you to know that as your headed back to Germany that a lot of us are seeking the will of God in our lives. You are not alone. I know your concerns with the travel. Sometimes you just have to put one foot in front of the other and do whatever it takes. I was at the prayer service we had at your home for Brad earlier on during your battles with this cancer. Jenny you are an amazing young woman and your ability to stand by Brad at this time is a total statement that love never fails. I am so proud for you and for your family. Your lives speak so clearly that faith, hope and love are alive and well. I pray for Brad, Sandra and David as well as you and your kids. Beautiful kids. Hang in there and know people every where are praying for a safe flight, a healing touch and a safe return. Even from Mumbia India prayers are being said tonight for your Brad. Lots of love sent your way........Hugs.
