The sure foundation

We thought the home-health nurse would be coming today to draw blood to see what Talitha's counts are. We called our assigned coordinator at the bone marrow clinic and were told they will wait to do blood draws until Tali comes in on Wednesday for her kidney tests.

That surprised me because I thought she'd need more platelets by now. Guess we'll just have to watch to see if any of the signs of low platelets pop up anywhere.

You'd think we'd be pros at this by now. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. It's such a case of the more you find out, the more you comprehend that you know less than you imagined.

Though it feels our medical knowledge and understanding is declining, there's something that's been growing: our ability to see the Lord's consistent hand. The more I see and recognize the Lord's hand, the more I trust Him.

There have been a few times that people have let me down but the Lord never has.

"And now ... remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." Helaman 5:12

I'm grateful for the sure foundation of Christ that doesn't move, sway, bulge, or break no matter what. In a world of so few real guarantees, I'm grateful I have Him.
