The Dispatching of Goliath

There's no way we could have known last August just how rugged our daughter's life & the battle to keep it was about to become. Goliath, in the form of Ovarian Cancer looked her square in the eye; hinted at sinister plans; and taunted her with boasts. Emblazoned just over his heart was the word death.

Goliath did not know Molly.

Goliath did not know God.

Late yesterday Molly and her husband Tom met with her Oncologist.  The visit was to be her first post-treatment report since undergoing two major surgeries last Fall, and a regimen of 18 weeks of aggressive & often-times difficult Chemotherapy that culminated just two weeks ago.

The result?  

Molly is Cancer Free

Today we are marveling at the inert, lifeless form of Goliath as it lays, headless, on the battlefield.  A victorious Molly stands over that form, and emblazoned just over her heart is the word life

Then they cried to the Lord
in their trouble, and He saved 
them from distress.
He sent forth His word and 
healed them; He rescued them
from the grave.
Let them give thanks to the Lord
for His unfailing love and 
His wonderful deeds for men.
~ Psalm 107:19-21

P.S.  My personal thanks to the many of you, and in particular, Luther, Judy Martin, Elaine Olsen, Sonja Goodson, Beth Endean, Debbie Petras, & Lisa Shaw, who have stayed tuned, offered encouragement, prayed, emailed, prayed some more, and come to love Molly as we do.  I love you.
