Brad has continued to stay on the same course the last few days. He generally feels better in the morning and then begins to tire in the afternoon. Today he had another big coughing spell at about 4pm....it went off and on for about 4 or 5 hours. He just gets so tired of coughing...poor guy.
We have continued our meditation/prayer sessions several times a day. Yesterday afternoon we prayed over Brad in our bedroom. As I was sitting there, listening to the prayers of those around me I began to think of how happy I am that my children have been able to witness the faithfulness of our friends and family as they continually shower us in prayer. I was reflecting on what an important part of their life, this particular experience has been. Remarkably, just as I was thinking that thought, I heard "Momma, Momma" I opened my eyes to see Zeke seated on a chair next to our bed. He then said, "I want to go next." As Meme finished her prayer, Zeke chimed in to pray for all those who are sick and for God to help his Daddy' knee to feel better. It was such a sweet moment...I was so proud of Zeke for sitting there quietly listening to the prayers of everyone in the room and then for deciding to join in with his own special prayer.
I wanted to be sure to include two pictures that I took yesterday. One is of a spectacular sunset that we had at dusk....it was gorgeous. The second picture is of David, Jerry & Margie Turner, Gloria & Von Burba and Sandra. These two sweet couples drove down from Granbury to meet with Sandra and David for dinner. It meant so much to our family that they took time out of their schedule to make the trip to Houston. They also participated in two prayer sessions, praying over Brad for God's complete healing. The prayers of these two couples were so special, meaningful and uplifting. We were so blessed to spend time with them and to have their encouragement.
