Who Is With You?

Posted by on Jun 3, 2010 in Blog Posts | 2 comments

Today’s post title comes from a friend who emailed this question while I was undergoing chemo last week.  Rob was with David in Auburn while I drove home for the infusion then returned to Auburn.

Here was my answer to her question.  I think you’ll like it.

“Robert is here with me…

and God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”

It made me pause when she first asked it.  My answer was one person, my oldest son.  But then, I had to realize that the Trinity was present.  I take comfort in that.  I had to put in in writing.  I sometimes act and think like I’m all alone on this planet and in these circumstances.  Honestly, there are moments when I do feel abandoned.  I know what the Bible says, but I have difficult moments that challenge me on this truth.  I do come around and remember this.

What about you?  In your moments of life, good and not so wonderful, is the Holy Who recognizable to you?  I hope so.

I am understanding more than ever chemo’s toll on the body.  I feel like I have aged 20 years in a week.  This is chemo reality.  It’s poison with a purpose.  I don’t think I really grasped that so well until this week.

BUT, I am still thankful for the long term benefits of chemo and God’s healing.

AND, I am thankful that my journey with chemo and cancer has an end.  I am sobered by the reality of those who will endure this regimen far longer than I will and who have already endured longer than I will.

Yesterday, I found a link that offered so much hope!  There are years to go before it’s officially approved (and I pray it is approved), but there are wonderful results (present in lab rats) for a potential vaccine that could prevent breast cancer!  Here’s the link.


  1. Amy,
    I am so blessed by the strength you have as you continue your journey…My pastor read Joshua 1:9 yesterday morning…and I am carrying it with me as I journey my obstacles…Be strong and of good courage for the Lord your God is with you and will never forsake you…hold on like Joshua Amy…the wall of cancer is coming down…you are wrapped in a quilt of prayer held by His hands…

  2. Thank you for your post today. We need to remember we are not alone in this world. We are praying that God will sustain you today.
