Misery and Thankfulness

I’ve gotten out of the writing habit lately due to the ongoing effects of my recent post “misery in bunches.” I don’t know where to go from here other than to say that God is good, and I’m holding onto that.

My wife’s health continues to be a big challenge for her and the family. We miss her when she is bed-ridden, but that is where she mostly is these days. All sorts of unanswered questions about her health remain hanging in the air like an icicle that won’t melt. We think she is starting to get better, but then another setback. We have had a lot of tests done that we believe will shed some light on causes, but so far the doctors are left shaking their heads in confusion.

Some good news is that a family in our church heard about our problems, and sold us their van for nearly $2k less than it was worth. This is wonderful, as we have a lot of medical and housing bills right now. The little extra breathing room financially is encouraging.

Some days lately life feels more like survival then thriving. It’s hard for me to write in these times.
