Day 5

Dr Bock was right on when he wrote... "It has been said that faith is the bird that feels the light, and sings while the dawn is still dark. That now must be your mission: to feel the light, and to see, despite the current darkness, the saving grace within your child that can be seen only through the eyes of mothers and fathers...
"Long ago, Alfred Tennyson wrote of the epic voyage of the exiled Ulysses, who in his journey home overcame the dark forces of inertia, fear, betrayal, confusion and despair...
"Your journey with your own child, cloaked in earthbound routine, will be no less epic than that of Ulysses. You will at times be lost in the darkness. But you will continue, illumined by love, because at journey's end there lies a whole new world for your child."

We are very thankful to the Lord for 5 days of successful treatments... It is an answer to our prayer.
Some days there seems to be little hope with his condition, thankfully our hope is in the Lord.
"My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God. Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us." Psalm 62

We are headed west through the Catskills, hoping to make it half way home. Travel is harder for Peter after a week of treatments. We are thankful for a beautiful day for driving!
