We're feeling pretty victorious in the Stewart household this weekend. Cade's Cal Bears surged to a 2nd place win in last night's 1st/2nd grade Friday Night Lights flag football championship. It was a fun night for our whole family, and we're so glad that Daddy was feeling up to joining in. Though we are worn out by the past few weeks, we know that cancer can never defeat us in what really matters. A family friend sent us a poem the other day that describes my thoughts entirely:

Cancer is so limited.
It cannot cripple love, it cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith, it cannot eat away peace.

It cannot destroy confidence, it cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories, it cannot silence courage.

It cannot invade the soul, it cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the spirit.
It cannot lessen the power of the Resurrection.

Can cancer conquer you?
I doubt it, for the strengths I see in you
Have nothing to do with cells, blood and muscle.


  1. May the Lord continue to bless you and have His face shine upon you even during cloudy times. Thank you for allowing us to stand boldly in the power of Christ through this time in your lives. We love you!

  2. That poem is awesome and so true. We love you all. ~Michelle S.

  3. Just wanted to check in and see if there was any update/specifcs for this week's His will Wednesday post. I would love to include you and your family again. Let me know.



  4. Beautiful poem and beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing (she said, as she wiped away tears..)
