Catastrophic

Seventeen years. That’s how long we have dreamed of moving to Wyoming. In the past year and a half, the opportunity has arisen to finally make this dream a reality, and we’ve been seriously considering it. Last fall, as we got closer and closer to a “yes” decision, Larry would often say “Unless something catastrophic happens, we will probably move.”

Cancer is pretty catastrophic. My diagnosis threw all our gears into neutral and put us in a holding pattern. We waited out the first several months, breathless, needing direction. Moment by moment, piece by piece, it came. And is still coming.

God said “Cancer is catastrophic. But I’m still bigger.” He is demonstrating His power and continuing to move in our lives, which includes moving our family to the state of Wyoming.

It’s a little daunting. No, it’s a lot daunting to be finishing up the active part of treatment while working to get a house ready to sell, finding a new property to purchase, dividing the farm, and packing a house all while having zero energy. Oh, and we have a grad party to throw the week before we leave. It’s all huge and it’s all simultaneous. And while leaving will be difficult, it’s all very exciting.

How all these pieces will fall together, I don’t know. There are so many things to arrange and figure out. But God has shown that He is in charge of all of this. He is leading. He is guiding and orchestrating. We just have to keep walking in the way He has shown, and all will be well and very well.

While so much uncertainty surrounds us, we have peace and confidence. We don’t know what our lives will look like in a year, but we do know we will remain safely in His hand. No catastrophe can change that. God is so much bigger than all these things. And we are grateful.

I'm a homeschool mom and the proud wife of a hard working farmer. We live in the sticks and drive 20 miles to a town of any size. I live to serve the One who saved my soul, and He daily loads me with blessings. I started this blog to share my journey through breast cancer. So far, I have only done a few warm up stretches, and I pray I will remain faithful and be an encouragement to others traveling this road with me. I know this journey will be rough, but I also know it will be perfect, because my God does all things well. I am not afraid.

  1. Awesome adventure of hope while enduring and a hard journey of difficulty. God is so good that way. He provides ways of escape when we could easily burry ourselves in woes. There is sunshine behind every cloud and this new adventure is that sunshine for dark days. Love you and continued prayers for all angles of your life. ❤️
