Cancer Journal (09.03.27): Cancer-Free Party

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: . . .
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance (Ecclesiastes 3.1, 4).

Well, friends, it’s time to party!

It looks like I am in the clear (“cancer-free,” “in remission,” take your pick), at least for now. I am on an every-three-month checkup schedule for the next two years. But the doctors are very pleased with where I am. So let’s celebrate!

From Kimberly’s Facebook invitation:

For all our family and friends who have prayed for us, cried with us, and ministered to us in innumerable ways – please come to our open house and give God the glory for what HE has done! Since not everyone is on facebook, spread the word! Hope to see you there. 🙂

The party will be at our house on Friday, April 3, from 5pm-8pm. It’s an open house, so just drop by whenever you can. If you have a Facebook account and are planning to come, please mark “Attending” on the Event page. If you don’t have a Facebook account and are planning to come, please post a comment on this blog post. Doing one or the other will help us in our planning.

Your prayers, cards, and love over the past nine months have been an incredible gift to me and my family. And the gift of your presence is the only one that I’d like at my party. Just wanted to make that clear. =)

Hear this, O [friends];
stop and consider the wondrous works of God (Job 37.14).
