We have had a quiet week at home enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of spring. We had two trips back to the hospital for blood work, dressing changes, and more tests. As the week progressed, Markus felt better everyday. After we had written the blog last week, our doctor told us that Markus’ bone marrow biopsy results came back telling us that the cancer was not in his bone marrow! We thank God for small mercies!

This week, we have been reflecting on how God gives us our daily bread. We had a sermon from Chaun Knegt, where he encouraged us as children of God, to rest in quiet assurance that He will provide. We had also read in a devotional how God provided for the Israelites in the desert with manna everyday. Just enough for one day. We are learning to trust in Him to provide what we need one day at a time, and when we do this, we are so blessed!

God continues to shower us with grace through the prayers and generosity of others. Please join us in thanking Him for this, as well as praying for Markus as he starts the five-day chemo treatment next week.

“Give us this day our daily bread” Matthew 6:11

Bitter sweet moment at Children's this past week. Levi (Markus' cousin who battled cancer four years ago) doesn't have to go back for a year and Markus is just starting his journey.
Signs of spring, cards in the mail every day, and a lost cat that is found!
Thankful for friends, family, and mentors to spend time with!
Thanks for helping out with chores Dad! And for borrowing this sweet little tractor to move the compost pile to the garden.
