ISAIAH 61:1-4

ISAIAH 61:1-4

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me and has anointed me to
Preach the good news to the poor. .
Bind up the brokenhearted,
Proclaim freedom for the captives,
Proclaim release from darkness for the prisoners,
Comfort all who mourn
Provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them
The oil of gladness for mourning
And a garment of praise for a spirit of heaviness

Victor continues to recover, slowly. The infection is still problematic; his kidneys, too, have not yet decided to return to function. However, he is much more alert and active. He really wants to go home and doesn't want Marta to leave his side. He's also restless and pulls at various tubes, tries to sit up, etc. Just a different stage of recovery. Doctors are optimistic for full recovery. Thanks for your continued prayers.

As for me, I'm somewhat like the sprinter who can't take a marathon. For short periods of time, I can do normal activities, albeit slowly. Then for a period of time, I sit as activities swirl around me, kind of like being in the eye of the hurricane. Or, maybe a better metaphor is hiding in the cleft of the Rock. Bob is still doing double-duty at home although I have resumed most of my responsibilities at church. Return to work? I'm taking it under advisement! :)

Thanks again for your prayers and support.
