(i wrote this late last night and didn’t get it on the site when i had thought i did–so late thoughts…)

when i have the time i have nothing to say and when i have thoughts i have no time… arghh.  quickly before heading to bed…  i am filled with a huge helping of both excitement and fear over mike’s return home.  i have been ascribing feelings to others that i have come to see as my own.  in my head i had believed mike would be in pretty good shape in order to “graduate” to be headed home and in fact, while he has been improving through therapy he still has a long road ahead.  some days don’t seem much better than a few months ago while other days he can actually hold a partial phone conversation with his brother in virginia.  the very precariousness of mike’s current condition makes me nervous about the responsibility and risks of having him home.  and yet i cannot wait for him to be returned to us.  i cannot wait for the kids to enjoy the privilege it is to see him every day, for him to be encouraged and motivated by his very environment. 

tomorrow bright and early i go to my first family education day to experience the rigors involved in caring for mike at home with only the live-in caregiver.  i know that the coming weeks will be an enormous adjustment full of joy and difficulty.  please keep in prayer for mike’s continued overall healthiness, and for smooth preparations.  just about 10 days till he is home–nov 8.  yikes and wonder,  michelle

    I loved seeing you yesterday, Michelle! I loved talking with you about life, and grace and holding on to God’s promises. How comforting is it to know that the Lord’s promises stand firm forever and that no one can snatch us from His hand. I’ll be praying for you, my friend!

    Hello Michelle and Michael:

    As I was praying this morning and had not seen the two new postings, I prayed specifically against any fever. So I am AARRGGHH! This is the work of the evil one – he is trying to get inside your head, Michelle. Don’t let him!

    A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;
    Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
    For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
    His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
    On earth is not his equal.

    Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing;
    Were not the right Man on our side, the Man of God’s own choosing:
    Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
    Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the same,
    And He must win the battle.

    And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
    We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
    The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
    His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
    One little word shall fell him.

    That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
    The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth:
    Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
    The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still,
    His kingdom is forever.

    The evil one is strong:

    For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
    His craft and power are great, and, armed with cruel hate,

    But God in Christ Jesus is stronger still!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
    The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
    His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
    One little word shall fell him.

    A BULWARK, NEVER FAILING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WE WILL NOT FEAR!!!!!!!!!

    HIS TRUTH WILL TRIUMPH THROUGH US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    his RAGE (AND FEVERS) WE CAN ENDURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ONE LITTLE WORD SHALL FELL HIM – JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hang in there, Michelle. You can do this. You have a web-site full of warriors! Stay the course. Rest in His love. DO NOT LISTEN TO THE LIES OF THE EVIL ONE.

    Love,

    Steve
