News from the doctor

First, thanks to all of you who pray for us. Only those who've experienced God's presence can begin to understand what that feels like.

Second: we have now gone to 4 of these appointments; after the cheery nurse takes Mike's vitals, we sit, not too long, and wait for the doctor. She's so pleasant and charming as she enters, greets us both and sits down.

Then, in a practiced move, she opens the chart. She glances over it and then looks at Mike.

Her report: unchanged since January.


Her suggestion: keep living.

We will follow her instructions.

And thank God for this gift. Join us.

Lynne and Mike


  1. Amen to that! My heart is overflowing with joy for you both. Words fail me, though. Thank you for sharing your exquisitely joyful news.

  2. Never done that, just living, that is. But it's a place we are trying to get. Life seems to fill up with all these projects and things to do. It seems like the doors are really opening and God is behind a move to the lake. We look forward to more time togeather, and time renewing friendships, with you and Mike. For myself, maybe if I give up stuff, I can fly more (at least 500 ft from any person, structure, or thing). Alan

  3. I am so excited for your family! Looking forward to spending more time with you both!
