Beating the Odds

It was about a year and a half ago that my Dad was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.  July marks 7 months past the time frame that the doctors gave him to live.  So far he has survived three bouts of infection, and blood and platelet transfusions nearly once a week.  Every day is a gift, and how have we enjoyed every moment with him. 
It has been a tough journey, but one that we have not made without our heavenly Father at our side.  At times we have been able to stand firmly on the assurance of His presence and other times we have found ourselves lost in the bondage of our own fears.  We will continue to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.
