Blessed Today

Dan was blessed with a fairly good day today.  It is now 1 a.m., here in San Francisco.  If Dan sleeps, no Medical personnel will come in again until 4 a.m.  They have been in and out of Dan’s room all day and night…doing all the things to help him recover from surgery.  Well, Dan just said that there is something sticking him in the back…and he can’t go to sleep.  I called the nurse for help.  Then, I felt under Dan’s back to find out what was sticking him.  It’s a tiny knot of thread woven into the sheet…and it is pressing on Dan’s tender skin.  The nurse will get something to help him sleep, but when will she bring it?  It is 1:30 now.

Dan had 2 pints of blood during surgery, and had 2 more pints after surgery.  He is receiving pain medication, medication to fight the infection, and oxygen.  The nurses turn him from one side to the other, or to his back every 3 hours.  He is very thirsty, but there is good filtered water for him to drink.  The water from the natural mineral springs in Romania might help him heal faster!

Looking back caused Lot’s wife to turn to a pillar of salt.  Let us look forward, ready to receive the blessings that God has ready, waiting for us to open up and receive.  Dan has been counted worthy to suffer.  We have been through some very dark moments but God keeps us covered by His wings.  Angels in disguise… are helping us keep the faith through prayers on our behalf, and through uplifting messages.  We are blessed. —  Anne and Dan at 2:15 a.m. Wednesday

    God says in His Promises, “Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly . . . and proclaim . . . that . . . hard service has been completed . . . In the desert prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken . . . The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever (Isaiah 40:1-8-NIV).”

    God promises, “I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow (Jeremiah 31:13-NIV).” “For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones (Isaiah 49:13-NIV).” “Burst into songs of joy together, you ruins . . . for the Lord has comforted his people . . . The Lord will lay bare his holy arm in the sight of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God (Isaiah 52:9,10-NIV).”

    God says to His Redeemed People, “The ransomed of the Lord will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. I, even I, am he who comforts you . . . For I am the Lord your God who churns up the sea so that its waves roar–the Lord Almighty is his name. I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand–I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, ‘You are my people (Isaiah 52:11,12,15,16-NIV).”

    The apostle Paul teaches God is comforting and compassionate toward His People. Our promise in Christ is if we share in sufferings, then we will also share in Christ’s comforts, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows . . . And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in the sufferings, so also you share in our comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3-7-NIV).”

    Love to you all,
    Sherrie H.
