And just like that we turn the page to a new month. Goodness where does the time go? Of course, time is a relative term around our house these days. I feel like I am living in a time vacuum, or maybe it’s a bubble. A very fragile bubble that has the potential to pop at any moment. But for now, inside this bubble, there is an air of peace. A beautiful calm. Where days and time have little meaning, we simply seek to treasure every moment.
We cannot thank you enough for your prayers for peace. We can literally feel them. Kayleigh’s continues physical decline was apparent the moment she woke this morning. She has nearly lost ability to speak all together. She tries to tell us things but it is so garbled that we cannot make it out. She has been much sleepier today, her appetite is declining, drinking is beginning to choke her, and her breathing is sowing down even more. Yet rather than feeling fear, panic or concern we feel steady, calm and at peace. Even Kayleigh, facing scary changes, still has an air of peace.
I continue to ask the Lord for healing, but my Spirit is content with “Thy will be done.” So today was filed with holding Kayleigh close, a few brief family visitors, love, hugs, snuggles and kisses. Oh how much joy I get from having her in my arms.
Tonight I ask your prayers over the rest of our family as well. Grace is battling bronchitis and Cole still has the fatty tissue on his neck that needs to be removed. And both of them are trying very hard to soldier on everyday like everything is ok. Much of my prayers today were for them. Protection of their hearts and minds.
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. 8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. 9 Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.
