Jeff finished his steroids this weekend. He is able to sleep again finally, but the headaches and nausea are returning. It's been a rough evening.
His skin is really showing the radiation damage now. It is very red, and looks like it may blister. Of course, that is adding to his discomfort.
Our boys started asking some very pointed questions after bedtime prayer tonight. They are worried, but it provided a wonderful opportunity to review some of Jesus' miracles and talk about the power of God and our privilege to pray.
Are you facing anything right now that seems impossible? I would encourage you to take some time to think about the power of God. By him all things are and were created. That idea gets me every time. His creation is amazing--and yes, I believe it happened just as the Bible describes. Just as I believe he raised the dead, and healed the sick and restored sight to the blind. He is God! And I believe he has the power to heal Jeff. I don't know if that's part of His plan for us or not, but I believe it is possible, and I'm going to keep asking.
