Our wonderful life group organized church service at our home this morning. Knowing that Brad would not be able to attend service at Southeast, they very kindly made arrangements to hold service and lunch for us in our home. We were so grateful to be a part of service with our closest friends and family. The time was filled with scripture reading, lots of singing (which we love!), and we even finished the time together with a group meditation. It is such a powerful experience to be a part of a large group, sending up prayer on Brad's behalf, all in one moment...visualizing God's healing being performed on Brad's body. In a situation that often feels so out of control, meditation and prayer give us a very powderful avenue to speak directly & expectantly to God. While we don't have control over what is happening with Brad's disease, we do have control about how we respond to it. Our minds are so powerful...an amazing sense of peace and hope always fill me following our meditations together.
Thank you to all those who helped to organize this special service for our family. We are so blessed to have your unwavering, continual support.
On another note, Brad has had his best day since Sunday a week ago. He has had better energy, easier breathing, with less coughing episodes. I couldn't be more pleased with his progress...it is so encouraging. Thank you for the prayers....we are continuing to pray for more of the same type of progress.
