What's So Good About the Night ?
This Too Will Pass Away
If I can endure for this minute
Whatever is happening to me,
No matter how heavy my heart is
Or how "dark" the moment maybe-
If I can but keep on believing
What I know in my heart to be true,
That "darkness will fade with the morning"
And that THIS WILL PASS AWAY, TOO-
Then nothing can ever disturb me
Or fill me with uncertain fear
For as sure as NIGHT BRINGS THE DAWNING
"MY MORINING" is bound to appear.

My husband was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia over three years ago. March 12th will be his three year anniversary for a bone marrow transplant that he received, donated by his brother. At the outset of our cancer journey, I sought the Lord for His help, just simply His help. He never failed me for one moment, and He taught me the blessing of living for the moment. Why is living for the moment a blessing? Simply because a moment is a blessing in and of itself. I learned to be grateful for a moment because the Lord was in that momnet. The Lord made that moment worthwhile, safe, comforting, blessed, joyful, thankworthy, fruitful, peaceful, and full of gratefulness and love. I learned the value of trusting in Him one moment at a time.
