Hearts Full to Overflowing

At the time of this writing, Dan is still with us.  The story is much the same as the night before.  We bought a few new clothes last week for Dan because he is swelling os much around the middle…today, we bought size Extra Large trousers, and shirts. The swelling continues.

How can we be so blessed?  People who have chosen to be Our Family are coming here to tell Dan, “Goodbye.”  Many others who have also chosen to be a part of Our Family have phoned or written saying how they wish they could see Dan one more time to hug him, to thank him face to face for how he let God use him to help them grow into better people.  

Our beloved brother, Samuel, left Wednesday to go back to Dallas before returning to Ghana, in Africa.  Today Mark and Debbie flew in for an almost 24 hour visit.  They are sleeping on the couches just outside our bedroom door…they want to be near Dan, be with Dan as much as possible. Tim and Claudia, Natasha and Amber are still with us.  

The question is…will Dan be with us?  God is good o I know that He will provide all we need, when we need it.  Sleep is what I need now after a wonderful day with Intentional Followers of Christ.

We wish we could put a photo of everyone who has ever helped up in any way. But tonight, I will settle for sowing you our dear, dear friends in Holland who have been loyal friends for almost 50 years.  Dick taught me the Proverb that says that it is better to have a loyal friend close by than to have a brother far away.  They are far away, but they keep close with weekly phone calls. God is always good.  Look for and be open to his goodness for He loves you very much.  — Anne and Dan
