today...my dad wants to say that he is so thankful for the amount of love, compassion and concern that has been stirred up within our family, friends, the church body, our community and beyond...because of what has been going on. It's amazing how God can mature us through pain and suffering.
Our church has been through a great deal of pain this last year.
It's amazing to watch us grow and mature...and to be able to express more love and compassion through our relationships. It really brings great glory to God and all that is good! That being said...let us encourage each other this day to continue in that good work.
My dad has not been in a lot of pain for the past couple of days. The pain meds have been working wonders :) We really pray that this continues. He also has more of an appetite now especially since his taste buds are coming back. He still has very little energy and we're hoping that will increase.
We are praying for you all as you are praying for us!
The Lauer Ohana
