10th Feb

It’s been an interesting day, though challenging as always. No matter what comes our way we have a choice… either focus upon life’s difficulties or focus upon life’s blessings. Either look at life through the eyes of hopelessness or see life as God sees it, something about being seated in heavenly places with Christ having an eternal all-knowing perspective. We can never know the details of our earthly future until we work them out, we have to live with hope, and we should always expect God’s favour and blessing as being from our perfect Father in heaven.

Again Jane had quite a good night and woke up feeling quite normal only to succumb to a horrible bout of coughing as soon as she got up. The continual coughing is also causing a lot of pain as well. We are praying and expecting this to be healed so that Jane can resume some sort of normality. A visit from the Macmillan nurse was encouraging and Jane has since been talking of refocusing attention away from ill health towards normal life. The nurse even suggested that Jane might be able to run an art/therapy workshop again. An interesting challenge! Let’s stay positive and hopeful.

Psalm 23v6 ‘Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life and I will live in the house of the Lord forever’ (NLT)
