Peace in the Midst of Uncertainty

  1. Beautiful…. thank you Carolyn! I am so sorry that you have had to endure the opinions of others as every ounce of energy needs to be directed towards the eradication of cancer. You guys are doing it exactly as you should be and you reflect the love of a Father who has ultimately defeated sickness and disease… regardless. I am confident that His great love will redeem and restore!

    I am not a person of many words but think of you and pray for you all frequently… #herestoyou #cheers #lovingyoufromhere #Luelfstrong #cancerfreeRyan

  3. You should know Caroline, that because I have know you since you were a little girl and I know your family for some time, especially your Grandpa, I have faith that your integrity and intelligence and faith sit on a solid foundation. You will never hear me being a naysayer. I trust your judgement. Don’t listen to the din of negativity. Stay strong in your faith. One thing I have learned is that you cannot take care of anyone else unless you take care of yourself. If I have any advice for you it would be take some time for yourself to recharge. May God bless you abundantly with rest and healing.

  4. Obedience … I love that you are listening to the Father’s voice. I do not understand how or why people question your judgement, but just know there are many of us out here that do not feel that way. May God bless and keep all of you.

  6. Caroline, I’ve heard bits and pieces of your and Ryan’s struggle, but this is the first time I’ve read your blog. As difficult (and I’m sure that’s an understatement at times) as things get, I am glad you are listening to God’s voice leading you both down the path He has set for you. You are both in my thoughts and prayers.

  7. Caroline, Well said. Open, honest, authentic and vulnerable. You and Ryan are an example of the power of LOVE. Way to trust your heart. When logic (the head) and emotions (the heart) clash, the HEART will always have the greater wisdom. Stay strong in your conviction and certainty. People will always have their opinions and they’re just that opinions. There is a world of difference between a FACT and an opinion. Sometimes people forget that their opinions are not facts. I believe you have done a wonderful job of making a distinqtion between the two. Remember to take care of yourself, you are the lighthouse for your children, continue to shine brightly for them as well. I will continue to pray for you, Ryan and your family. I will also continue to see the perfect end result of a HEALTHY, vibrant Ryan. If there is anything I can do, please call me. God bless and stay LuelfStrong.

  8. Ryan. I love you brother. All I see is the love and grace and peace that the father, our father has given you. He gives he takes away. But…. Under all circumstances…. He and only he is in control. I’m so glad that you have figured this out. May your life, your battle, your perseverance bring glory to God. And as you already know… We are more than conquerors through Christ who strengthens us.

  9. Ryan and Caroline. As I read your blog today, Caroline, here from Washington where I’m taking care of my two little boys, I couldn’t help but to reminisce about our own time of battling cancer. It was a day by day fighting the good fight of faith. Just like you said, lots of people will come and try to give you their best ideas and thoughts. They mean well. We experienced that too. But at the end of the day, it is the path that God has specifically called you two to walk out. We went through many many treatments, surgeries, doctors appointments, nutrition, and literally everything that you are doing. With all the prayers, and everything that we did in the spiritual and natural, it is still God who is the supreme guide and is ultimately the One in control of this journey that you’re on. I pray that you will enjoy the journey in the midst of the trial and struggles. I pray that God gives you answers to your prayers, above and beyond all you can ask for or think. I celebrate your lives, your love, and the victories you’re going to experience in 2016. Much love and prayers to you and your entire family from ours. God bless you as you continue faithfully to write these blogs. They will be a blessing to many. Much love. Donna Wuerch

  10. Forgive me for not knowing any of Ryan’s story and not even reading this till now. I retired from the Univ of Florida the end of 2015, and this fall I’ve been focused on our 5 kids & 7 grandkids, building up to retirement and now organizing an out-of-state move back to Kentucky to live with and support my wife’s elderly mom.
    Her boarder/care giver/handyman/driver unexpectedly passed away recently.

    I know Ryan is an amazing man, and you Caroline an equally amazing woman, wife and mother. And not because of your own strengths, but because you are seeing the unlimited strength of your true identities which are in Christ.

    May the eyes of your understanding continue to grow and see more everyday. My prayer is you both manifest His Resurrecting Life, Love & Health and continue to be successful in drawing on His faith within you any time yours reaches a sticking point. Abundant Grace & Peace

  11. Beautifully said Caroline. This is your journey, and yours and Ryan’s alone, people will always have opinions but if you’re at peace, you know you’re on the right track. I’ve had thorancentesis too, ouch yes I can relate! When I get thoughts of pain I sing ” row, row, row your boat……….” It helps a little bit 🙂
    All the best to you and Ryan, remember to look after yourself too, that’s important.
