Good Morning Prayer Warriors,
Today will be just like Christmas (again!) for me because Lindsay will be in town around 8:30pm and is coming to the house from the airport (thanks to my generous brother the "taxi driver"). All my girls together again! Lindsay wanted so badly to come when Jesse was in the Hospital to help out and allow Dee and I to have a little time together. This will be good though because I can see her more this way because I wouldn't see her much if she was with Jesse in the hospital.
As we continue to give Jesse medication through the day and night we realize what a long journey this is going to be. I talked to Jesse today asking her what her feelings are about it all. I asked if she really thought about the meaning of some of the great verses that people send. The word of God is clear and precise. If you are a believer you believe the whole Bible not just the verses that you want or like. Jesse said she understands and believes the Word of God to be true. He is with us and will never forsake us. Of course it's hard to accept or understand the why some times. Especially as a 16 year old. I have problems understanding some times myself. It gives me comfort that she can get her strength to get through this from that knowledge too. It's at that point when you realize there is nothing you can do (in of yourself) and you give it over to the Lord that you realize he is always in control (sorry about the Sunday sermon). Dee and I hit that spot a long time ago.
Back to Jesse
She doesn't eat enough to take her off the TPN yet. She isn't throwing up any more but doesn't have much of an appetite. Nothing tastes good. It's not really Dees cooking either. Everything she eats needs to be either frozen or in a wrapper for bacteria reasons. That type of menu doesn't appeal to her much.
Thanks for all the faithful followers. The prayers and encouragement mean a lot to Jesse and all of us. She looks forward to reading your letters every day. She knows how much you all care for her and that blesses my heart more than I could ever explain.
Have a great day and when you are giving thanks today remember to thank Him for his Word that guides are lives with encouragement and blessings.
