As I type, my bone marrow donation is slowly infusing, as if it were a regular old blood transfusion. In one sense, it’s a bit anticlimactic. But it truly is a wonderful gift and a miracle!
The gift is from a 28 yr old girl, who willing endured a yucky procedure, so that I might live.
The miracle is in the science that takes her gift and transforms it into a blood product that my body will use to rebuild itself!
I am most immensely humbled by what’s happening. This gift I do not deserve, will save my earthly body, into prolonged life.
This is not unlike the undeserved gift the Son of God offers us. He willing spilt His blood, unto death, so that others would go on living, into eternity, as Children of God.
“…without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.” (Hebrews 9:22 ESV)
