Life Is a Blur

Dan is doing well, praise God!  He gets up in the morning and with my help gets bathed and dressed. We eat our sauerkraut first thing.  A little later, we eat the Budwig Diet of organic low fat cottage cheese blended  with low lignan organic Flax Seed Oil and fruit.  Then he takes it easy for a couple of hours…dozing in the glider rocker in front of the TV.

I haven’t figured out how to keep to the rigid daily schedule of preparing 5 eight ounce glasses of fresh carrot juice, several servings of Super Greens in water, and his special Cellect vitamin and mineral powder mixed with organic fruit juice.  All of that has to all be worked in between meals.  We are truly grateful that friends from church are preparing organic dinners that meet Dan’s needs.

People keep encouraging me to take care of Anne.  I haven’t figured out how to do that if I’m going to take care of Dan, and all the household responsibilities.  Yesterday afternoon, I just let everything go and rested several hours.  Today, I kept pushing because there was and still is so much to do.  By 5 p.m., I could not function any longer.  My body and my mind were hurting.  Since I couldn’t do anything else, I took a rest.  It’s after 11 p.m. now, and I have two more hours of work to do.  BUT I’m going to bed.

Did you read Sherrie’s comment on last night’s blog?  She reminded me of some very helpful words from Jesus.  “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest . . . learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30).”  “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.  Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him (Psalm 34:7,8).”   I pray that God will help us remember these Truths, and that God will heal Dan.  This is a long, bumpy road we’re on, but God is our refuge. — Anne and Dan
