Sidewalk progressing

"...which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life (Matt 26:28)?" I can't add one hour to my span of life whether I'm anxious or not. That's the answer to this question. I don't control my life; it's in the hands of the One who cares for me. Lord, help me to remain at rest in my Father's care.

The sidewalk around Ian's room should be finished tomorrow. In the foreground of this picture is where a small patio area will be so we can sit outside under the shade or in the sun. We're looking forward to Ian coming home.

For prayer, please remember the issue of the attendant care (we're asking for 24/7 coverage); it still hasn't been resolved. Also, we're praying that the weather holds and that we remain a priority for the paving company to put a driveway in to get Ian and all of his equipment to his room. Pray for strength for us. Pray that Ian would wake up.

Mary went to see Ian today, and he seemed as alert as we've seen him. She had another session of training in how to care for Ian's needs.

Pray for Ian.

Still praying for you and for Ian... that you will feel His presence, peace, and love. Also, that Ian wakes up. May God bless you today and in the days to come. Bill and Linda Wrikeman

Dear Ones,
Praise God from whom all blessings flow! We continue to pray for Ian and for all of you. May the Lord give you and all who care for Ian His wisdom and strength to do all that needs to be done. We pray that the Lord will wake Ian soon.
