The story behind my last poem...
Searching for Answers
In the past few months as our daughter, Ahna, has battled her strange health symptoms, things began to look very bleak. The unknowns and mysteries made everything worse. Ahna is attending college 9 hours away which further compounded our feelings of helplessness.
As time and the symptoms have progressed, it has begun to look more and more likely that these strange symptoms are probably MS (Multiple Sclerosis). That is a scary diagnosis… especially given how quickly things have progressed with Ahna.
This past weekend, as we really began to confront what all of this might mean for Ahna’s future the Lord opened a window and granted us hope…through a doctor in Australia. But… how to get Ahna to Australia, etc… Again, the Lord threw open windows and doors and has flooded us with blessings and hope. There are too many instances to really recount, but one of the most touching blessings we have received came from the music department where Ahna is attending college. When Ahna’s friends in the music department heard about all that had transpired this weekend the voice teachers and students approached Ahna and told her that every year they put on a benefit concert, but this year they had planned to forgo the concert because they didn’t know who to donate the proceeds to… They then told her that they loved her and wanted her to be able to go to Australia so that she could get better and come back and sing for them again. We can only say that our hearts are full and that we are feeling incredibly humbled and blessed. We can’t deny that the Lord is aware of our needs and is mighty to bless…
