School is out for another year at ACS. I've been thinking today about the students cleaning out their desks and teachers taking down the bulletin boards of another school year. I was happy to be able to send a "summer message" via video this morning to the students in their "end-of-the-year" chapel. And now it's summer break - I wish I could have the summer break, too. I don't look forward to 5 weeks of radiation. I want this cancer stuff to be done - but I will press on and hope the pain subsides. Yesterday and overnight were not good - the pain persists and I can't keep it under control unless I double up on pain medication. Maybe the pain is my body's way of cleaning out the chemo drugs.
Please keep praying for freedom from pain, and patience to endure. And I know I'll be alright because God's right here - He makes the sun peek out from around the clouds.
I'm going outside to pick up my mail now.
Hopeful in Him,
