Welcome to the weekend, my pals. Thanks! Thanks! Thanks for all the prayers and type phrases you’ve despatched our approach. Sean has continued to enhance extra day by day since he’s been house from the hospital.
He’s feeling so a lot better already and was in a position to keep off of the supplemental oxygen all day lengthy yesterday! (Can you are feeling our pleasure??) I’ve been saying prayers of thanksgiving each time I see Sean. Covid with Pneumonitis may’ve turned out so in a different way for our household.
We’re nonetheless taking life very slowly. I’m spending my days with Sean and the youngsters right here at house. If him, this doesn’t come naturally to my huge, powerful, doing all of the issues, husband. Nonetheless, we would like his lungs to heal totally, so we’re following the physician’s recommendation and permitting his physique to relaxation as a lot as doable proper now.
Our pleasure lately consists of wanting ahead to a stroll across the yard, driving him to get a haircut, and possibly even attempting a flight of stairs within the subsequent day or two. It’s a far cry from his standard Krav Maga and CrossFit routine, however proper now, it’s the tempo we have to preserve.
For now, he’s nonetheless utilizing the supplemental oxygen at night time, however we’re hoping he received’t want it for for much longer. Sean is already doing so a lot better than I dared hope per week in the past, I’m simply so grateful to be the place we’re.
A good friend jogged my memory this week that prayer permits us at hand our issues and our struggles to God and say, “That is Yours now. You may deal with it so a lot better than I ever may.”
And that is the arrogance that now we have towards him, that if we ask something in accordance with his will he hears us. 1 John 5:14 ESV
Whereas all of us hope that reduction from our struggles is a part of the need of God, that isn’t all the time the case. However even when it’s not in God’s plan to heal us or save us from a state of affairs, prayer continues to be vital.
After we current our worries and requests to God, it brings peace that surpasses understanding and guards our hearts and minds towards worry and fear.
We thank God and proceed to wish day by day for the nurses, the docs, the aides, the technicians, the cleansing workers, the meal workers, each single individual working tirelessly, time beyond regulation hours on overcrowded hospital flooring.
“Peace I depart with you; my peace I give to you. Not because the world offers do I give to you. Let not your hearts fret, neither allow them to be afraid.” John 14:27 ESV
