The more things change, the more they stay the same.
When you think about it, life is always changing. It is how we face these changes that makes life the journey it is.
This cancer is a huge change for Sephine. Already in this chapter of her life, she continues to lighten up every room and heart she meets. She is the same Sephine, her life has just changed. There are no words to properly define how wonderful she is, or how much we have already learned from her. God has truly given us a gift. We take a deep breath and embrace all that we have.
Right now, we are sitting in the waiting room…waiting for her to get an MRI.
Waiting. Life is a lot about waiting too.
Changes and waiting. We can count on these things.
And through it all, God remains consistent. He is the waves to the shoreline, He is the sun in the sky, He is the breath to our life. Through all the changes and the waiting, He stays the same. He is with Sephine, He is with all of us. This will always be the same.
