I wish that I could say what is in my heart this morning in a way that wouldn’t detract at all from what God has done for our family this past week. There have been so many miracles, and I am so grateful.
But nothing could have prepared me for the pictures over on Joni’s site. I’m sure that Nel looks really good for what he’s been through, but I almost cannot bear to see my healthy, energetic, “can’t be stopped” brother looking like that. I know that God’s grace is sufficient. I know that the prognosis is alot better than we deserve, but I hate it so much.
Would you dear friends continue to pray for him and his family — and also for me that I can somehow stop these helpless tears and get on with the business of life and faith and doing the things that are best to do right now? I’m not much help to him right now except to pray and be optimistic and encouraging, and there are so many things that need my attention otherwise — a new grandbaby, a baby shower, Youngest Daughter’s graduation and grad party, and then Middle Daughter and Youngest Daughter’s departure for Europe — all within the next three weeks.
Thanks to all of you who have cared and prayed and been incredible support to us. Please don’t stop now.
