EVENING UPDATE 7:30 pm Katy’s treatment today went smoothly. She has already had some relief. She said she is very tired and plans to go to bed early. She has not asked for any pain medication since the treatment started at 1:00. We are so grateful!
MORNING POST 11:30 am
This morning Katy woke up at 4:30. We prayed for more people and events. We thanked the Lord for the prayer times we’ve had in the middle of the night knowing without the pain there would be no prayer. We have had some conversations lately about two words, “eternal rest.” It sounds so sweet to those who soldier on in trials with the knowledge that there is sweet rest coming for those who believe.
By 5:00 am we decided it would be fun to have an early breakfast to celebrate “Remicade Day.” We got our coffee and biscuits and sat in the living room facing east. At first we could see the sky brightening, but then it turned pink, orange, purple, lavender, blue, and white. It changed hue every few seconds and we sat whispering with amazement at the gorgeous display of color. What a show! We thanked the Lord for His awesome display, finished our coffee and went back to bed. We will be leaving the house in a few minutes for the hospital. Thank you for keeping our spirits light through your prayers and humor. James, if we have another pet, we’ll name it “Peeve!” Thank you so much for all the laughter. It was a gift!
Jesus, I Am Resting, Resting
Ever lift Thy face upon me
As I work and wait for Thee;
Resting ’neath Thy smile, Lord Jesus,
Earth’s dark shadows flee.
Brightness of my Father’s glory,
Sunshine of my Father’s face,
Keep me ever trusting, resting,
Fill me with Thy grace.
Jesus, I am resting, resting,
In the joy of what Thou art;
I am finding out the greatness
Of Thy loving heart.
