Home Sweet Home!

You turn my tears of sadness into such joy and gladness
My heart can’t keep it in – I’ll shout it!

Remember I mentioned here before how EXCITED I can get because music SO STIRS MY SOUL! God sent this one straight to me just for this moment to share with you guys!

When you see this post we will be waking up in our Georgia home! We have left MD Anderson CANCER FREE!

We snuck home in time to surprise our girls Sunday morning! They will be SO THRILLED that we are home!

Tears were shed the entire trip. But especially when we laid our heads in our own bed. With every step, the tears are shed from just the overwhelming gratefulness from our Lord for the healing He has done!

We are not shedding tears because we are tired…even though we are exhausted.
We are not shedding tears because we have no hope.
And not shedding tears because we are frustrated with all that we have endured.

But tears fall because of the Joy and Hope that our God has given us.  Our healing continues!

We got out of the hospital on Friday morning and with wonderful well wishes from our surgeon and his team. We have a follow-up surgical post op appointment in 6 weeks. We will have the biopsy results from the lymph nodes that they removed at that time. We are asking God to show us His healing hand that the chemo killed all cancer cells that were removed.

More updates will still come in the coming days of recovery from home, but I just couldn’t hold this one in!  Hope you danced in your seat to this song as much as we have!

Bless you Prayer Warriors and Friends!
