Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
To my Internet friends, some of you certainly already know this, but perhaps many don’t, yet.
On Thursday, I was informed that my wife, Terri, was diagnosed with a very aggressive and humanly-incurable brain tumour. She was dealing with some confusion, but on Friday I was able to tell her. We do not yet know what, if any, treatment will be possible.
A week earlier, Terri and I went out and walked over two miles. By Saturday, she could not safely get out of bed without falling. That night, before I left, Terri quoted me this from her favourite hymn:
He whose heart is kind beyond all measure
Gives unto each day what He deems best –
Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure
Mingling toil with peace and rest.
Then, she said, “Today, we’ve had what He kindly deemed best.”
If you want to receive updates on Terri’s status, please send me an email using my contact page and I will tell you how.
