Getting Old(er) Isn’t Fun


We’ve been having some medical issues since the first of the year and unfortunately has made us have to face all the ugly things aging brings! I haven’t felt like doing anything except standing guard over Raelee’s schooling. We had hoped she would get more independent since it is Abeka homeschool with videos and teacher teaching classs. But if we aren’t right there watching her she has been known to fast forward classes and amazingly be done with school in half the normal school day.

Christian is having eye problems and between medical issues with me and his having to have close watch on how his macular degeneration is advancing we have spent a lot of time back and forth to Kampala which in itself is exhausting and stressful.

I had to have surgery about seven weeks ago and it hasn’t been as fast as a recovery as I’d like. Partly my fault, I feel good one day and do too much which sets me back. And I have a lot to prepare for a group from America coming. Thankfully I have help with the house and I will be teaching how to make Natchitoches meat pies this week! After seeing how well they went over last year we will be busy tripling what we did previously!

So I say all this to explain my absence on here and ask for continuing prayers for us. I believe my medical problems (except recovery) have been fixed. But Christian still has to endure tests and possibly shots into his eyes.

I also ask prayer for too many of our friends and  families this month who have lost loved ones. May the God of comfort give them peace and the strength to get through the hard times.

And I give praise and gratefulness for those who take great care of us and enable us to have the best medical care. I also thank God for good reports on family that have struggled with sickness and cancer.

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
