As the chemo begins to show it's physical signs in my wife I continue to have the opportunity to see God move in ways that are unreal. Many of the moments that are the most moving are very quiet, personal moments that allow me as a husband to have the opportunity to admire my wife and God working through her.
When we started chemo and came to understand some of what the side effects could be I came to value some things that I may have taken for granted. My wife has the most beautiful hair in the world and for the last 3 weeks when I could, I have helped dry it for her. This seems even odd to write but let me say for me to be able to serve her was also an opportunity to be with her. Well over the last few days the chemo has shown up and those beautiful blonde hairs are beginning to be lost. As I was drying her hair i just stopped and hugged her and told her I was sorry this was happening to her.
This is one of the moments I will never forget, Aly looks at me and says, "thats just the cancer falling out".
Richard Richardson spoke this morning about Standing at edge of Canaan. There is no doubt that Aly would give a report that the land is great and is truly ours ready for the taking. Lord help me to truly be the Joshua she needs in this fight as a husband because in these moments where you are watching your wife go through things you wouldn't wish on your enemy, much less your wife, it is very hard to not get caught up in the little things.
