When my parents took me shopping for my "Easter outfit," they made it perfectly clear that the reason for the new dress, shoes etc. was to signify a new beginning, new life, new life as a gift from God. They made it clear that Christ Jesus was born to die for our / my sins and he died willingly in order that I might live forever with Him. Every time I wore the dress, I remembered that life changing lesson.
I am so thankful for those lessons. Yes, if we (John and I) were not Christians, we would experience the same crisis. But we / I would not have the peace that fills me today and every day John has been sick.
Speaking of da man.....Today he was placed in a cardiac chair. A cardiac chair is similar to a recliner. It can be placed in a reclining position or the patient can sit up. It was designed for patients with cardiac and respiratory illness.
It will take some of the pressure off the lungs and they say will make breathing easier. Right now, the breathing is a bit ragged. He is upset due to the change. I assume that he feels insecure in this new setting. It is hard to know what or how he is feeling since he cannot talk. But, this is another baby step on our journey.
Some times I talk to him and it seems he cannot hear or maybe comprehend. Yet when I asked him if he was ready to get into the motorhome and head for Anza Borrego State Park in California, he tried to get up! At least I know what his motivation will be. And you can count on it that I will use this to our full advantage.
At the same time I remember how to eat an elephant...........
One bite at a time!
Today, I think of an Inchworm. They move very slowly .... just like John's progress. And if you KNOW John we would almost say that is the way he moves! In the last few months, I've been calling him turtle. Not to be mean, but a sweet tease.
Some friends and family do not realize that they can leave comments. Just click on comments and it will take you to the right spot!
God bless you all, be safe out there.
