She is battling bone cancer after being in remission for 12 years. In February, she discovered that it was back with a vengeance. After countless surgeries, injections, tests, meds and relentless pain, she is undergoing a stem cell transplant this week.
The lady that I work with (this is her sister who has cancer) has been recounting this story to me over the past months and I now feel very connected to the situation. She is leaving today to go be with her sister this week so I felt compelled to send along a little blessing.
One of the assignments for my One Little Word class was to collect music that inspires me. On this music search, I came across Rachmaninov's Vespers. Heavenly. That is all I can say. This seemed to be the perfect blessing to send along into the hospital room, as it sounds like angels.
So I burned a CD of this heavenly music and decorated the cover. I had seen this music feather on Pinterest and tried my hand at it. The doily is from my husband's grandmother. The fragility of the doily made me think of the lady who is battling cancer and the wispyness of the feather made me think of being as light as a feather through this treatment as she floats on angels voices.
Perhaps it is a bit of a stretch, but God hears our prayers regardless.
This is for you, Doreen and Myranda.
Know that I am praying for you.
Our God is a good God.
