We hope wherever you were this weekend you were able to enjoy the wonderful spring weather. We had such a nice weekend. Katy was not doing very well, and could not make it to anything she had planned, but we gave her some surprises. On Friday night around midnight, Paul Burton returned from a wedding rehearsal. He came to the house and we all went up to Katy’s room where she was sleeping and quietly got ready for Paul Burton’s birthday party. We had the cake and ice cream, gifts, and soft lighting, and then woke her up to join us. She was so surprised. We all sat on her bed and talked about all kinds of things. Paul Burton always has some funny story to tell. After an hour we turned out the light and slipped out of her room quietly. The next morning when she woke up the first thing she said was, “That was a wonderful party last night!” On Saturday we made arrangements to put her soaking tub out on the back deck where she could soak her aches and pains away to the sound of birds singing. We filled it up with piping hot water and got her settled into the tub. While I worked on a painting project nearby she chatted with me. It was great to have her there soaking in the shade of a tree, listening to the birds. Paul Burton made the remark that it looked like a “redneck hot tub”. We all laughed, but I got to wondering what he meant by that!
I wish I could say things are great for Katy physically, but she is not there yet. Please pray for her doctor, who has been tirelessly researching ways to help her. He is going to be trying something this week that may give her some relief from all the muscle and bone pain. Pray for his family, as he is investing this extra time on research. We appreciate his help so much.
There are so many things we are thankful for tonight. These pretty spring days are right on the top of our list of praise to our God. I was on the back deck this morning looking into the woods. There is a woodpecker going after an ant colony in one of the trees on the hill. I was imagining banging my nose on the side of a tree for an entire day, and I just had to laugh and say, “Lord, I don’t know how you hold all this together but you sure have given us interesting things to ponder!Comments:
