With ‘rainbow ice cream’ waiting in the queue at the printers I thought I would re-blog my post from 11th of January 2014. Rainbow ice cream is Peter’s story.
This was my blog:- It’s been very quiet on my blog front of late. Our hearts and lives have been so full of all that is going on with our grandson Peter that there has not been space, nor have I had the heart for anything else. Especially not self absorbed blogs. For my recent followers Peter, who was four years old last May, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, (a cancer of the lymph glands) when he was nineteen months old. He is now in the final stages of his journey through this life. The past three years have been full of heartaches, joys, miracles and disappointments. But they also have been filled with wonder. Wonder as we have watched this brave little boy handle everything that comes his way and wonder at the faithfulness of family and friends who have continually prayed him through many an emergency and sustained us all in prayer, even as I write.
We know we are not ‘Robinson Caruso’ in this but we don’t know how we would have coped had we not been Christians. We are grateful to a loving God who lent Peter to us for this short time and even now though we know and believe that God could reach out and heal him completely. We pray ‘not our will but yours be done’
