If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for the world and its fullness are mine. Ps 50:12
I regularly have to remind myself of truths like this. The Lord owns everything: food, clothing, me, you, Ian, health...everything. It's humbling on the one hand; I don't own or control anything really. God does. I'm completely dependent on Him even for food. But, that's comforting, too. The One who is good holds all things in the palm of His hand. It doesn't seem that way with Ian in the state he's in, but I know it's true. Scripture declares it. My experience up to now confirms it. Nothing has changed.
Ian has been eating more by mouth lately. Mary feeds him a whole variety of things from pudding to Ramen noodles. It used to be she could only give him things the consistency of honey but no more. It's awkward for him, but he tastes much of what we have for dinner. It's certainly not a full meal at each sitting, but it's more than what it used to be. He's making very, very slow progress.
Thank you for praying.
