You do not faint, You won't grow weary
Merry Christmas. Hope you have a nice one. I had a nice Christmas Eve last night. But, I sure am missing my dad bad. I did get myself my own present a few weeks ago. I adopted a Beagle from our local human society. They say he is 2 years old. They are just guessing because he was dumped off. I think he's only like a year old from the way he acts. I'm enjoying him. Take care, Kim
Phil, I have no words to adequately thank you, someone I've never met, for your daily prayers. It is indeed a blessing to know you are praying for me. Here we are, so far away but linked by faith and suffering. Should you ever wish to share, I would appreciate hearing more about Annie's journey of grace, peace and joy on the painful pathway of ALS.

Thank you for commenting on the thread I started, "The Blessing of Hymns." If Jesus doesn't heal me, I will be leaving my husband behind, and the thought fills me with grief. I am just starting my ALS journey. From your pictures of Annie, she looks like she's a beautiful person, and you must miss her tremendously.
Phil, thank you for thinking of me and updating me. As you have said, things do change. We know Rom. 8:28 will always be true, regardless of man's futile attempt to block the light. Annie and you have run the race. God bless you for all your time, talent and treasure invested in lives of who-so-ever will.. Again, it has been and always wil be a pleasure to know we are part of the same body. To you, I say "God-Speed"
Thanks for the nice welcome, Phil. I took a look at Annie's rugs. Loved them! I saw at least 3 with cats - I love cats. I can still do some quilting - with my sewing machine - but my coordination is deteriorating. Nice to know that there are new hobbies on the horizon.
Thank you for your response and uplifting words. I did not know how to put into words how I was feeling but you describe what I was feeling exactly. We had been married 45 years and our lives were spent as a couple. His faith got him through his illness and I feel I was left behind. I will get use to this new world but miss him terribly.
