sticking close & holding on

It’s been quite a few days since the last post – only because there didn’t seem to be anything new to report. While Marian has continued essentially without pain, the GI issues have remained bothersome, but hardly enough to warrant an update.

However, the past couple of days there have been incidents of falling which indicate loss of strength and balance. Fortunately there has been no injury beyond soreness and bruising of flesh (and egos). We both realize how dependent we are on God for His daily strength and grace. Jim will be sticking closer to home even more going forward.

Our son Steve is out of the hospital and recovering at home. Thanks for your prayers for him as well as us.

    Prayers continue for you, our dear friends. Are you receiving visitors? I would love to stop over early afternoon this coming Thursday, when I will be on campus for board meeting, perhaps right after lunch. If not convenient, I totally understand. Love and prayers are with you. DONNA DUSS

    My prayers continue for you all. Always good to get updates, and though they don't come too often, am happy, because to me, that means things are stable. Am sorry to hear about the falls, which as you say indicates weakness and loss of strength, however, I continue to give thanks to God, that there is no pain. It's a tough journey, but once again, just a small reminder..... you are not alone in this. I know many of us are not physically with you, ( and i so wish I were closer so I could do something practical for you both), but I speak for myself when I say, I am there in spirit, and pray for you daily. Been there, I understand. Much love, hugs , and daily blessings to you all. Glad to hear Steve is doing well. Always Pam

    We are grateful to God for the encouraging word on Steve. Also for the sweet companionship and tiny flecks of humor which brighten up your posts. Be assured of our almost daily prayers from Barcelona. Looking to Him to learn invaluable lessons from you for the future. Pedro and Eunice Sanjaime
