Father's Day

Loved ones,

Thank you all for your continued prayers. What a blessing they are to us. Every single day we get an email from someone new telling us that they are thinking of us and praying for us. Or someone who has already emailed saying that they are STILL praying for us. It is truly incredible. It ministers to us in many many many ways -- helping us to keep our eyes and our hearts focused on the firm foundation we have in Christ!

Ray had an ok day today. He was more tired and less hungry -- he seemed a little better later in the day. He had some nice time with the girls and ate dinner downstairs with us. That was a true blessing, the first meal together in all these weeks.

Ray's cousin emailed us the words from the Litany of Healing at his church during which they prayed for Ray. I thought they were so beautiful and wanted to repeat them here for all of you.

Almighty God, giver of life and health, send your blessing on all who are sick, and upon those who minister to them, that all weakness may be vanquished by the triumph of the Risen Christ — who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

not alone and not afraid --

kristin and ray
