Day 7 – Going Home!! 10/27/13

After a week in the hospital no matter how great the staff and how good the care we are very excited that Mark is getting discharged to go home today!! Praise the Lord!!

After getting the epidural out Friday he has gotten progressively more sore and has felt the pain of everything they did inside him. It will probably take a couple weeks to get to feeling normal again.

The biggest thing is that he has got to take it easy and not try to get back to normal too quickly and this is where my job becomes increasingly difficult! As you know, Mark is hard to keep sedated and quiet – he is always rearing to go!

We are geared up to get going on juicing and a good raw diet. If anyone locally has any experience or tip about the raw diet I would love to talk with you. This is my biggest concern – that I won’t be able to keep up with the diet because it can be overwhelming so that is definitely a prayer request.

We also have decisions to make about what treatment route to take.

We are encouraged knowing that God has a much bigger plan for us than we will ever know and all He wants us to do is trust Him and we pray for Jesus Christ to be honored in whatever way He sees fit.

One of the devotions we both like to read daily is “Jesus Calling” – it is like a note from Jesus just to us every day and it is amazing how many days it is totally applicable to what we are going thru. Below is today’s devotion…

Thank you for your continued prayers!!

Much love and gratitude,

Mark and Lee

Jesus Calling – October 27

As you become increasingly away of My Presence, you find it easier to discern the way you should go. This is one of the practical benefits of living close to Me. Instead of wondering about what is one the road ahead or worrying about what you should do if….or when…, you can concentrate on staying in communication with Me. When you actually arrive at a choice-point, I will show you which direction to go.

Many people are so preoccupied with future plans and decisions that they fail to see choices they need to make today. Without any conscious awareness, they make their habitual responses. People who live this way find a dullness creeping into their lives. They sleepwalk thru their days, following well-worn paths of routine.

I, the Creator on the universe, am the most creative Being imaginable. I will not leave you circling in deeply rutted paths. Instead, I will lead you along fresh trails of adventure, revealing to you things you did not know. Stay in communication with Me. Follow My guiding Presence.

Psalm 32:8
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.

Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
