MUSIC: "Through it All"
I know personally that you have such a sinking feeling when your loved one's health is at a place where there's nothing you can do to make things better. You feel so helpless.
When your toddler fell while learning how to walk you kissed away the boo-boos, you could always repair your children's favourite toy with your handyman/woman talents, or you'd mend your teenager's broken heart by helping them realize that a first love always hurts the most. But when a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, you don't have the ability to just make it better.
Being there for your loved one though is the most important thing you can do. Supporting their decisions and knowing that the best medical attention is being given is more than anyone can ask of you.
To all of the viewers who are going through a difficult week and find that it's extremely hard to cope, I trust you will find some comfort in my song selection. It's actually my favourite sacred hymn with words that are so very fitting for those in troubled times.
“God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.”
