Merry Christmas

Another Christmas!!!!  It’s so hard to believe another year is almost over.  Wow!!  May this be a blessed season for all of you.  Thanks so much for standing with us in prayer and for all your encouragement.

Glenn is still in the hospital.  Not much has changed.  He usually wakes up around 3:00 a.m. with a lot of pain and it takes until about 9:30 a.m. before the drugs kick in to make him comfortable enough to be able to sleep.  He then spends most of the day sleeping so that when I go to see him in the evening he is a bit more alert and able to visit for a bit.  As it is the Christmas and there are a number of days off around this time of hear, not much else is happening.  The doctor told me they will probably do the nerve block next week.  He is still hopeful that the radiation will work, but I’m beginning to wonder as it’s been two weeks now since he had his radiation treatments.  Besides that, there really is not much else to report.  We are weary and at times feel overwhelmed, but we continue to persevere knowing that God is in control and our lives are in his hand.

God bless you and Happy New Year!

My heart feel suddenly heavy, but I am glad for the promise that, at times like this, when we really don't know how to pray, the precious Holy Spirit makes intercession for us with groaning that cannot be uttered. Our Father is fully aware of your pains and weariness and I know His light will still shine in your heart even at this period of seemingly darkness that threatens to overwhelm.

My heart goes out to your family at this time. I cannot understand why the doctors and nurses allow Glenn's pain to get so out of control. Yes, it is Christmas holidays but surely a patient suffering so needs a little sacrifice to do the nerve block. You are greatly loved and prayed for. Eunice
