“That’s what faith can do.” (from April)

“I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains, faith that doesn’t ever end, even when the sky is falling.
I’ve seen miracles just happen, silent prayers get answered, broken hearts become brand new.
That’s what faith can do. That’s what faith can do. ” -Kutless

“How great is our God? Sing with me how great is our God and all will see, how great, how great, is our God?”

Thank you all for your love and prayers. From this early afternoon; “No evidence of metastatic disease. All clear.”

AMEN AMEN! I believed it in my heart but it is still so amazing to hear the doctors say it too. Let’s just rewind a moment to 18 months ago from Mass General (to sum it up)

  • “You have metastatic breast cancer,stage 4 (terminal), the fastest growing and most aggressive type. We will try chemos until they do not work anymore and you have about 2 years to live.” or
  • “We do not do mastectomies on metastatic patients.” or
  • “You will have to be on hormone therapy for the next 10 years.”

Now-18 months later and different doctors but the ONE true doctor: ALL CLEAR- NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE!! Amen amen!

I am so humbled and grateful to our loving and merciful God, and to all you who have helped, loved, prayed and believed with us. I will never be told that I am in “remission” like a normal cancer patient because of my particular diagnosis, but I do not go by their reports anyway. Call it what you want, but for us it is simply our amazing miracle. There is so other explanation and we need no other one-we knew from the beginning who we were believing and calling upon when the doctors and world say it is not possible. With God all things are possible.

We do not always know why we go through things or even understand it, but we do not have too. From one of my favorite verses which is on my bracelet; Proverbs 3;5-6″Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.” I do not understand always, but I do trust Him always. In our suffering we are often taught things we could not otherwise learn, and this is not a journey I certainly would have chosen. However, would I do it again to give Him all the praise and glory and draw others perhaps closer to Him? Absolutely. I am just so thankful that it is His will for me to be healed here and now, in this world we live in. We will all be healed one beautiful day in heaven if we believe in Him and call on Him, but I am so thankful that He has chosen to heal me here as well. Please do not stop praying, as I know this has made all the difference. We will forever be grateful to all of you for that. Our girls do not know the magnitude of the miracle that we have been granted, but one day they will. They will find out just what faith can do.

Love and God bless, April
