mike wakes me around 5 am for a pain pill most mornings (for the ankle pain he still experiences). i am not really talkative at that hour generally and he is usually quiet from dry mouth and inaction. so it was all the more striking when mike shared a few sentences aloud. he said, “praise God, he is so good, he is so wonderful.” it was such unexpected fun at such an unexpected hour. at other times during the day he is struck more by the frustration of waiting for healing and progress and asks me to pray with him for these things. so I will keep that outburst of worship tucked in my head. it is also so great to hear so many sentences pushed out by sheer will without having that open trach hole covered with a hand. But most of the time days go by with a lot of monotonous tv watching and a few faithful visitors a week. mike has also described feeling trapped by this seemingly neverending waiting and marking the hours by reruns. He is not down or depressed but it is a discipline to remain grateful for each moment given. Thanks for such faithful prayer and unexpected graces,

    His praises are music to my ears. I’m planning to be in Chicago in July and look forward to seeing the Zegarski clan.

    Grace and Peace,

    “Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God”–joining in worship of our great Help and Hope. Tell Mike we’re counting the days–next tues we’ll be celebrating the halfway mark with you…..

    “But the Lord still waits for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For the Lord is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for him to help them.” Isaiah 30:18

    So much waiting – while others, even those you’ve never met like me, are being so blessed and changed by the spirit at work in your lives. He is God, our Saviour.
