trust

what a topsy turvy upside down few weeks this has been ... after being so relieved that leo was better ... he is once again struggling "with something" ... whether it is the pneumonia or his meds creating problems re lack of oxygen in his system - the doctor isn't quite sure ... tho' the meds could be the culprit ...

we knew that one day there would be an issue with the meds ... but they are needed to control the 24/7 pain ... yet they create a whole set of other problems ... such is the round and round world of chronic pain ...

leo is on antibiotics again ... then on monday he'll do more labwork (they want early morning samples) ... for now i'll just watch over him as best as i know how ... and rely on my God to keep us both safe ... He ALWAYS has a plan, my Jesus, even tho' i don't know what it is - i will try to practise what i've always preached - and just TRUST in HIM, rather than leaning on my own understanding ...

blessings to you, dear blog buds ... and thank you for praying for us ... saija

UPDATE: well it's saturday p.m. now ... today has been much better ... it has been such a roller coaster ride for us lately ... i'm losing track of time! ... leo did have a rocky night - and restless morning - but today was so much better then yesterday ... maybe he still has a "bug" that the antibiotics are working on? that is my hope ... but mostly it was your prayer that has AGAIN turned the tide ... thank you!!!

It really has been topsy,turvy for the last few weeks for sure Saija..
We are all very concerned about Leo,Pilot-dad and Serina.
We have been taking it to the Lord in prayer not only for these dear ones but also for their families!
Just take heart Saija and look at the title of your post...Love Terry

GOOD FOR U , SAIJA -- having "faith" and declaring it is not because U "feel" it - its because of HIS NATURE, HIS LOVE for us -- and U , tonight , are believing IN HIS GOOD INTENTIONS FOR U AND LEO --- in HIM ARE THE PROMISES AND YEA AND AMEN --
We will wake with your name and pray for U both, as we do for Claire and Jim and Vicki and Richard , Donna and Jennifer - Heb and her dad - Serina and Felisol , Arlene and Heather --
NO DOUBT, your days grow weary, but we do as our forefathers did in CHRIST, they TRUSTED and GOD WILL GET THE GLORY and we will be the happiest for it - I have to believe that Saija , therefore I declare it , not because I feel it but because of WHO HE IS -- and thats why U declare your faith in HIM TOO --- Lord Bless U , Saija , SEEKER OF TRUTH

Just checking in tonight to see how everyone is...Saija, I continue to pray for you and will pray for Leo even more in the days ahead. Same for Claire & PD...oh, the struggles we face on this earth! I wish I could take them all away. The Lord is impressing on my heart this week that "I must decrease, but HE must increase." This life we now live, we live through the Son of God.

May the Lord comfort and heal and sustain, especially at night-time when pain seems worse, and our hearts grow weary of it. Praying for ALL of you daily and as the Lord brings to mind.

Love in Christ,
Vicki

PS--Shelby found a part-time job, but still needs something full-time. She has no phone but emailed me from the local library today to touch base. The Lord has provided for her through the food bank there, but she has no church . Rent will be coming due Oct.1, you know. We'll keep praying! Thanks!
