15th May

So then today in it’s own way has been a relatively good day. But only relatively… Jane continues to live in this living nightmare of a battle that in the natural can only be a fight to control the horror of advanced terminal cancer. We continue to pray for divine and supernatural intervention not just for symptom relief but for that miracle of complete healing and restoration. My Bible shows quite clearly that when Jesus walked this earth he healed all who came to him. He also says that those who follow would do even greater things…

It’s not really much of a life though as after increasing use of morphine Jane’s very sleepy, which is fine in giving a good night’s rest but not a lot of fun during the day. She’s now completely exhausted, feeling really ill and can barely stand in order to transfer from one seat to another, however she remains completely at peace without complaint and with the slightest excuse her trademark smile still fills the room! She is truly heroic.

Anyway this morning one of our lovely daughters came to sit with Jane enabling me to have a break and go to our church meeting. I returned to find said daughter kneeling at Jane’s feet holding an art-book producing a co-authored drawing… quite impressive! Later Jane asked about today’s message at church so I shared a little about coming before God’s throne of grace, and then the Bible story  in the book of  Esther telling of a young Hebrew girl coming uninvited before the King of Persia asking for her life… all very pertinent. I couldn’t remember the King’s name but instantly a little voice confidently mentioned the name ‘Xerxes’… my wife may be sleepy but certainly not dopey!

Psalm 9:9-10 ‘The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.’ (NLT)
