Robbie seems to be slowly turning the corner today on his stomach problem. Thank you for praying for him and the rest of us. He is sleeping off the Phenergan now. He has the college football games on TV and dozes in and out. Actually, he seems to wake up just when I start to turn the channel. Hmmm.
Everyone is so kind to continue to keep up with us when you all have jobs and busy family lives. I keep referring to the long road that is Rob’s recovery. You are all so precious to want to go down that road with us. We are all very anxious to get back to our life before the accident, but are accepting the fact that it will be a while before that happens. I guess we’ll never really get back to that exact life, because times like this change your life in some way forever. I love the verse at the end of the book of Job that reads, “The Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning…” (Job 42:12a). I’m not comparing our situation to Job’s, but I trust that God will bless our family more in the future because of this experience. He is teaching us to trust Him for everything, call out to Him about everything, and give Him praise in everything. Not easy lessons, but important ones to learn. God bless you all for the way you bless our lives daily.
P.S. Please pray for Robert Williamson & Steve Little, who are en route to Africa now. They are probably beginning a 19 hour layover in Casablanca, Morocco. Robbie is missing not being there with them. Please pray for their safety, succussful outreach in the villages, and their families here.
