Thursday Prayers

Loved Ones,

Relief from the vomiting we pray! I can't tell you how often and how desperately we pray this prayer. Not only is it wrenching physically, it is so hard on Ray in every other way. We pray for encouragement, for hope, for healing and for relief.

The nurse came today and drained fluid, so that was good to be able to do from home. We are in touch with Ray's doctor as to what else we can do for the vomiting. We pray for wisdom as there may be potential things to be done but all have pros and more importantly cons.

Life continues with our girls and we are incredibly grateful for them -- they are a joy in our days.

"Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me, for in you my soul takes refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed. I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills his purpose for me. He sends from heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me; God sends his love and his faithfulness." Psalm 57:1-3

not alone and not afraid
