Today, 2 years ago 25 May 2007, Deqlan , our beautiful 8 month baby boy, was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma. It is a day that i will never forget , it is a day that brought pain we had never ever before experienced, a pain so deep it took our breath away. Sounds engraved in my head.It changed our plans, it changed our lives - as you all know our favorite verse continues to point out, that Our Lord knows the plans He has for us, and they are to prosper us , not to harm us. These words helped us cling to our faith and hope in God healing our beautiful boy and He did!!!
As my dear husband and mom have continued to tell me the past month - i can not live in the past - i cant be haunted by dates and reminders , smells and even clothes- i have to live in the present and look to the future and that is looking at our beautiful boy growing up , he is healthy and he is cancer free today and i thank God each moment of every day for this miracle.
As mom said to me this morning, we are bound together, but not by fear - by hope and by faith.
I wanted the entire month of May to pass so i didnt have to think about this day - but its here and i am not afraid of it - because God has lit the journey for me, and for us, He has told me whatever i ask for in prayer, and believe i shall recieve, i shall recieve - and wow are we recieving ! He is showering us with His gifts of love and joy and healing.
So today, i thank God for giving us the shoes for this journey and for lighting our path, for being the ultimate healer in Deqlan , for the miracles He has given us, for guiding us, for pulling us closer to Him through Deqlan, for the amazing prayer army and support we have from all of you that continue to pray when i ask you to and even when i dont! Dear Lord, please continue to answer our prayes as we pray for them, please continue to let your Holy Spirit flow through every inch of Deqlans body, healing him and protecting him from all harm. Please let Deqlan remain free from cancer and remain NED always and forever
Thank you to you Deqlans prayer army for being with us every step of this journey - our amazing family that would do anything for us , for our friends old and new , that just pick up the phone to say hi and see how we are , and for every single prayer, every single message and every single positive thought you have sent Deqlans way!
So i invite you all to join us in celebrating this day together with Deqlan , in thanking God for answering our prayers and healing Deqlan. Please also always continue to stand firm in your faith with us, agreeing on Deqlans permanent healing. Please never ever stop the prayers for Deqlan and our family - we appreciate them more then you know!
I ask you all to please continue the prayers for all our friends around the world - prayer move mountains- please pray for all the survivors, the warriors , the angels and their families. Please pray for the doctors , the scientists, anyone in the medical field to be lead to the cure for cancer.
Deqlan, our beautiful boy - our love is endless for you, our pride bigger then the galaxy we rotate in, our thanks to Our Lord increases each day. You are our everything and we love and adore you and thank God for trusting us with you ! Thank you for all the love and joy and light you bring to our lives. For taking the pain that we felt 2 years ago, and making it disapear with your smiles and hugs and kisses..
God Bless, lots of love and praise and rejoicing
