Happy Birthday! Today is our daughter Mary’s birthday. We are rightfully proud of Mary and her love for Jesus, her love of family, friends and God’s Kingdom in this world. The world would be a much poorer place without her and she is a blessing to many people. Millie and I would love to spend this day with her but that can’t happen this year.
Today is a day of some big decisions concerning the future of Millie’s personal health care at this time and we would appreciate your prayers for wisdom concerning these decisions. A lot of people, maybe even you, have had to face big medical decisions and make choices, maybe even choices that you don’t or didn’t like. So we ask for your prayers today concerning God’s guidance in our decision making. As we face the day we thank God for His message to us in His Book, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus, (Philippians 4:4-7 NIV).
