THANKS FOR LISTENING
Well, best laid plans and all that! I really planned to post a Show and Tell today. I just couldn't seem to carve out a piece of time large enough for blogging today! I am, however, enjoying looking at all the other Show and Tell offerings. Hopefully I will get them all read by tomorrow. I'll be sure to participate next week!

In the meantime--I would like to share something with you. Some readers of this blog know about my husband's illness. I posted about it
here. Today was somewhat difficult for Mr. L. He struggles with heavy congestion most days and must use a suction machine to clear his lungs. He experienced a particularly rough time today with little relief. He is finally resting quietly tonight.

His nurse was here today. We are fortunate to have a lovely Christian nurse who comes twice a week to check on Mr. L. She has been great support during the two months we have been working with her. I believe we have added some good ideas to the plan of attack we need to use in this ongoing battle. We will be implementing some relatively minor changes in the next few days--Nothing major, just tweaking the way we do some things. The goal right now is for Mr. L to be comfortable and keep the congestion and accompanying problems to a minimum.


Please pray for Mr L that he will get some relief from the congestion and regain some of the strength he has lost during this ongoing battle. He has an unwavering faith and continues to seek God's will in his life even through this difficult struggle. He is a remarkable man, loved by many!


Fortunately, our children are with us this weekend. Of course, G and his family live nearby. K and H and their boys came tonight for a visit that had been planned for several days. I believe having all four grandchildren here has cheered Mr. L. He takes great pleasure in being with our sons and their families.


Your ways, O God, are holy. What god is so great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; You display your power among the peoples.
--Psalm 77:13-14

Hi Myrna, I came by to thank you for your sweet comment on my SIL.
I read that your husband had a bad day yesterday, and I wanted you to know that I will pray for your situation. We've been through a long-term illness before, and know how hard it is at times.
Come back and visit sometime! I love company!
Blessings to you,
Karen

Thank you for letting us know the situation with Mr. L so that we can pray about these things. Isn't this a wonderful part of blogging when we can uphold one another in prayer from all over the US and beyond!

Myrna, what a moving post. I was not aware of your situation and I will keep both of you in my prayers.
It sounds like the Lord is using your husband in directions he may not have taken if things were different.(with his writing)

Thanks for stopping by my blog,Friend.

"A merry heart doeth good like medicine".

I'm glad your kids and grandchildren are there to cheer y'all up.

I've done my share of nursing sick friends and family, so I know just what you're dealing with. I'll be praying for y'all, Myrna.

Have a wonderful and blessed Sunday.

Love and hugs,

Diane
