Well, in spite of the fact that there were absolutely  “SDRAWKCAB SYAD” this past week that seemed to run into each other going and coming, we got around, and when the evening was done last night, it was one of our best times ever.  We even had children choosing songs to sing, (and for the first time ever, we didn’t have one request for “Jingle Bells.)  Our Karen did a splendid job, and there was good participation.  I had incredible help from my daughters and husband, too, and some of the people brought food to round out the menu, and we had fun!  Today is “Write The Christmas Letter Or ELSE!!!” day, so I need to get to that. 


My Daddy is not doing so well again.  He had some really great days before coming down with some sort of infection that is defying treatment.  I was there to see them this morning, and he is breathing so fast.  I wonder if that is from the medicine that he is taking, or if I should be concerned about something else.  He says he doesn’t feel really bad, but keeps spiking temps up to 103.  The bad news is that when he was to the doctor yesterday, they discovered that there are now enlarged lymph nodes on the left side.  This is something new, and each thing, however minor, coupled with everything else makes for rather grim news.  I don’t like to think about it . . .   But —


“He is our peace, who has broken down every wall


He is our peace, He is our peace.


He is peace, who has broken down every wall.


He is our peace.  He is our peace.


Cast all your care on Him for He careth for you.


He is our peace, He is our peace.


Cast all your care on Him, for He careth for you.


He is our peace.  He is our peace.”    (I don’t know who wrote this praise song, but it is meaningful to me in this uncertain time)

  1. Jesus loves me (you, your Daddy and Mama, too) this I know.  For the Bible tells me so.  Little ones (sad ones, frail ones) to Him belong.  They are weak but He Is Strong. 
    Oh, how I love Jesus.  Oh, how I love Jesus, Oh, how I love Jesus, because He first loved us.

  2. I know it has to be a very difficult time for you right now.  We are praying for renewed strength to find you each day.

  3. we heard that your dad has passed and we are sorry for this great loss.  remembering you and your family as you walk through the valley of the shadow.

  4. Mary Ann, I love you.  I’m so sorry for the gaping hole this leaves in your heart and life. I am remembering you to our Father.  Love, Evanna
