Ian smiled at me a few times in a row today. It was the first I'd seen him smile since he was at Lifecare. Very encouraging:) Also, yesterday I was shaving his face and couldn't get a few spots on his moustache so he took the razor a few times and did it himself. I could tell it was taking a lot of effort to do it, but he did make it up to his moustache where I was telling him to shave. He knew what I was asking him to do.
"But although tribulation is thus the path of God’s children, they have the comfort of knowing that their Master has traversed it before them; they have his presence and sympathy to cheer them, his grace to support them, and his example to teach them how to endure; and when they reach “the kingdom,” it will more than make amends for the “much tribulation” through which they passed to enter it."
Please pray that staffing would be found for the weekend shifts. Please pray that he comes back to us fully restored. I miss him.
