I wondered that yesterday when I saw Ian. His eyes were open, and he was looking at me (that's a change from the last few days when he would only keep his eyes closed, and we weren't sure if he was asleep). Is everthing he sees just a confusing mess? Where is he? Does he hear me? Wherever he is, it's a comfort knowing that even there the Lord is with Ian.
"Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend into heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. If I say, 'Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,' even the darkeness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you" (Psalm 139:7-12).
Ian has been keeping his eyes open more than he had been, but at times he still seems to be in pain from them.
Thank you for praying.
