Dear Friends and Family
This is a sticky post.
I will leave up for several days.
Please scroll below other posts.
I will be trying to do some regular writing
as I have time and energy for it.

Dear Friends and Family,

You may have noticed that I am not posting as often as I normally do. We are going through some difficult times right now. I will be around a little and may take time to read and comment some, but right now I don't really have time or heart to do a lot of posting.

Most of you are aware that Lee has been seriously ill for quite some time.The last few days have brought some changes in his condition. Those of you who know his story are aware that the last two+ years have been a miracle. Lee has always been a man of great, purpose-driven dignity. Therefore, to respect his privacy, I do not normally go into great detail when discussing his condition. It is neuromuscular related with other system complications.

Lee has been through a lot, but feels very certain that the Lord has purpose during this "bonus time" of his life. We continue to trust that God's plan will be accomplished and that He will be glorified. Please pray for Lee and our family as we deal with this phase of Lee's illness.

I will give you updates as I can. Our journey has taught me to not second guess God--or Lee. (Well, I really already knew that--but the last two years have certainly confirmed it). They are an amazing team and we never know what to expect!

I will be popping in and out as I have time.

My heart is with you in this Myrna for so many reasons - not the least of which is the health issues in my own family. You will continually be in my prayers.

I would like to pray for you Myrna.
Dear Jesus,
Please continue to be with Myrna and her husband during this difficult time. May they feel Your presence in their midst as they never have before. May they feel the protection and warmth of Your huge loving hand as You hold them in the hollow of it. May Your will be done Father, and may You grant Your grace, peace, and love as only You can do. It is good to know that You are in complete and total charge of every situation we are in. Thank you Father! Amen.

Praying, Myrna.

I've been the family "nurse" and have a lot of experience with home health care and hospital care. I know a little of what you're dealing with, but I also know the Great Physician is the one ultimately in control.

Love you, my friend.

Diane

The greatest thing about this blogging community is how much we all care for each other, and how much we all understand!

Myrna, may the Lord Jesus grant you grace, peace and love as you go through this trial together. Lee's life has already been a testimony to the grace of God. May our loving heavenly Father wrap his arms around you during this time.

I'd been missing you and came over to tell you so and found your note. Know that our heart and prayers go out to you both. I just read this post to Mickey.

HE is our source and we are never alone. HE will and does uphold you.
