9th Feb

Sometimes we have to simply grit our teeth and just get on with it! Having to cope with ill health ought to be enough but the rest of life trundles along with its little hassles as well… Jane felt strong enough to have a little outing this morning until we realise that my car brakes were failing! Duel circuit hydraulics kept us quite safe but the trip out was spoiled as we needed to divert to my wonderful brother-in-law who owns a local garage. He’ll fix it Thursday.

Jane has been struggling with pain through today, keeping her awake last night as well. She’s determined to hold back on using a morphine prescription if at all possible but ordinary painkillers and cough mixture are barely sufficient. We keep praying and then praying some more and then praying some more… we had a beautiful time of worship this morning singing some great old songs and we know that God is with us in a very special way. A friend of Jane she met at university made the point that ‘God is listening’ and you know what? He really is and we are totally convinced that the creator of the universe Jesus Christ is concerned about and attentive to the very tiniest detail of our lives! We will press on with thanksgiving and praise on our lips and in our hearts.

Isaiah 50v7 'Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do his will' (NLT)
