I've never been a fan of waiting yet cancer is all about waiting. Waiting for the day of appointments to come around, waiting for the doctors once you are there, waiting for scans, waiting for test results, waiting for radiation 5 days out of every week, waiting for the next chemo treatment, waiting to see if the side effects they warn about may come, waiting to finally get through your treatment time, waiting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
It occurred to me the other day that our waiting won't end. When the waiting is over for Tim's radiation and chemo appointments there is always be more waiting to be done with all the follow up that is to come, waiting to see if the cancer has been stopped in its tracks, waiting to hear the word "remission". I have been afraid that our days of being a waiter have only just begun.
But then I read the scriptures and concluded that maybe being a waiter isn't so bad....
Psalm 130:5-6 "I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning; I say, more than they that watch for the morning."
