Today was the day. Well, today was supposed to be the day. We had been told that we’d have an answer by March 9. Today we were told that the real deadline for the decision is March 24. Deep breath. Okay…? >sigh< So we wait some more. And we wait with the firm assurance that God’s timing is never late, even when it feels late to us.
Thank you for continuing to pray for us as the Lord lays it upon your heart. I would also appreciate your prayers about my mother’s wound. She had open heart surgery on January 15 and by around February 12, the bottom of her incision had opened up and became infected. It has not improved, despite antibiotics and specialized wound care procedures and materials. She will be seeing a cardio-thoracic surgeon tomorrow (Tuesday) for further help.
I want to thank you for your prayers for me and for our family, as well. I don’t know exactly how you may have prayed, but I want to thank God publicly for a sense of restful peace in our home and in our spirits over the past couple of weeks. I really enjoyed some days this weekend where I felt downright happy again. After an awful lot of gray days both inside my heart and outside in the weather, it was wonderful to feel sunny and happy again. Thank you. Thank you for helping carry our burden. Thank you for loving us through your prayers, your words of encouragement, and your concern. Thank you.
