the alarm rings early,
rising from a restless sleep

i jump in the shower
with the hope that
the hot water will relax
and ease away
the tense soreness
in my shoulders.

hopping in the car
it is still dark out-
and we are on our way
to seattle.

as we drive the
two hour commute
the sun starts to rise
and the sky begins
to lighten-
ahead of us in
the distance is the
beautiful & majestic
mt. rainier,
standing proud, tall
and snow covered-
it is beautiful,
and i am reminded
to see the beauty
of this day.

we are quiet
both of us comfortable
to just be in each
others presence
and wrapped in our
own thoughts.

today we got
some wonderful news
from my husband's doctor...
and we are praising God

happy, thankful
and rejoicing.

shining and seeing beauty
in this day and always!

joy is something we feel
rejoice is something we do!
(-sermon notes from sunday)

So happy for your husband's good news. My husband has a CT scan on
Friday and a colonoscopy scheduled for later to see if his cancer has not returned. I pray for good news as well.
