Jes’ comment from yesterday is just a small picture of the joys of studying Spurgeon. I hope to meet him on the other side to tell him how much we enjoyed his writing. Katy and I have immersed ourselves in the study of Daniel and I stayed at the hospital until two in the morning looking up scripture with her. Daniel’s prayer in chapter nine could have been written by any one of us today. Think of the joy we will have in heaven when we sit together with the prophets and disciples and fully understand the scriptures revealed to them when they walked the earth. I don’t know about you, but I’m planning on looking for the talking donkey, too (Numbers 22:30).
In all the tears and frustrations of our saga, I have to report with great joy that the lice are gone. It could have been all the chemicals that drove them away but the girls and I sang loudly when we were getting our lice treatments. Try singing, “Hit the road, lice, and don’t ya come back no mo’ no mo’ ” (to the tune of Hit the Road Jack). If you can imagine me with Katy and Qavah in our chemical caps singing that song together with our pretend microphones it may be good for a chuckle. But I do believe we have conquered. YES!
We were not able to bring Katy home yesterday. Her nausea intensified yesterday and she had to stop drinking her nutrition drink when vomiting started. Her doctor decided to keep watching that overnight. Katy is being forced to fast. I wonder what manner of healing may be taking place? On Sunday’s drive we decided to choose peace in the midst of what may look like a storm. This may very well be what Katy needs to cleanse her system. I can’t explain it but Paul and I are not alarmed at this point. We are stepping back to watch what the Lord will do in this situation.
When I left the hospital last night, the night guard patrolling the lobby walked me over the bridge to the parking structure and to my car. He had a uniform, badge, and a gun. I felt pretty safe! But after I got home my thoughts returned to Katy and anxiety set in again. Paul picked up the Bible and read, “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.” (Psalm 94:19). Ah yes, the One Who walks beside me is better than a mortal man in uniform with a badge and gun. I fell asleep and slept for hours.Comments:
