Dan celebrated his birthday with Jan Saturday.  I trust it was a fun day together in the mountains.

Thursday, I gave Dan some personalized M&Ms candies with a picture of Dan and Jan on each one!  I think it was the first time I had helped him laugh in months so it was well worth the express shipping!   Each time I am with him in the last two weeks he is physically stronger.  I still sense that the emotional roller coaster and the challenging treatments have taken a toll, but your prayers and God’s steadfastness are the only remedies that I can see for that.

Today’s sermon was spot on for my yearnings for Dan.  Taken from Proverbs 3:6-7 and I take the liberty to add verse 8 also:

6) In all your ways acknowledge the Lord and He will make your paths straight.  7) Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.  It will be healing to your body and refreshment to your bones.

In so much of these difficult treatments, we are wise in our earthy eyes, but maybe needing to trust in Him in all ways.  Dan is nearing key decisions on his next steps.  If you would hold him up for wisdom, discernment and godly will, I would be most appreciative.
