This anniversary is real

Tomorrow and Friday are anniversaries of my diagnosis with colon cancer. Reminders of a descent into great depths for our family. Hard days then and now. And yet, I keep hearing a refrain in my head: “though the earth gives way…” The words that surround the refrain are also important:

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.” (Psalm 46:1-3)

This moment is real. But it is not the only reality.
