Thankful for this Weekend

Loved Ones,

We are thankful for another quiet day. Ray had another day of rest and seems rested. No vomiting, his mouth seems healthy and his fluid accumulation is about the same. We are so grateful for all of this.

The day was full of quiet moments. A movie with the girls, quiet time with Ray, reading and talking with the girls before bed. With so much commotion over the holiday this day seemed like a day that everyone could recharge a little bit. We are so glad for it as we know how deeply it is needed by all.

We are thankful for this whole weekend. We pray that Ray would keep growing stronger and that God would work miracles against the cancer. We pray for constant assurance of God's presence and his promise to share every burden. We pray that this week would go smoothly -- each medical procedure or appointment.

"The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze, and your strength will equal your days." Deuteronomy 33:25

not alone and not afraid --

kristin and ray
