Wednesday, February 9,2011: How Do You Eat An Elephant?

Have you ever heard the question - how do you eat an elephant?  In case you haven't, the answer is "one bite at a time". 

We received some difficult news this morning at my doctor's appointment that we are still processing. 

So now you're thinking what does eating an elephant have to do with processing bad news?  It's the answer "one bite at a time".  That is how we are processing the bad news - one bite at a time. 

This is also how we will share the news.  Tonight's "bite" is that we have decided to stop chemo treatments.  We feel very peaceful about this decision.  We are shedding a lot of tears and struggling a great deal with the things that we need to do next but underneath all of it, we have peace.

The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.   Exodus 14:14
