My time here in the Pacific Northwest has come to a close, and tomorrow I head back to LA where I will continue to rest. Though my work load has been minimal the last six years, I'll carry an even easier load this fall as I try to get on a healing trajectory. I'm hopeful the rest will be productive in the best possible ways.
I continue to remain hopeful that God will use DNRS, along with my other treatments, to completely heal me with time, but in the meantime, this journey continues to be more like a quest through sawtooth mountains than a zipline through the jungle, and I covet your prayers:
Here are my most pressing requests:
1. For special grace as I prepare to fly tomorrow after/during a very challenging week.
2. For protection from the Enemy who wants to kill and destroy.
3. For encouragement in Christ and comfort in his love.
4. For laughter and joy.
5. For peace and trust in the good things God is preparing for me in the future.
6. For physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual strength as I forge ahead.
7. For something unexpected to bring me joy the way my parents' puppy has. She has been a therapeutic companion and tremendous blessing this summer, and I will miss her.
8. For complete healing sooner rather than later.
Thank you for your prayer support, my friends. It's an immeasurable gift to me.
If you'd like to support me beyond prayer, my brother recently put together a site to raise medical funds for a year's worth of my medical expenses, as the cost of my doctors appointments and treatments continues to be well beyond my means. If you feel moved to contribute, or you're able to share this link on social media, I thank you in advance! And a big thank you to those of you who have already contributed. I feel overwhelmed by your generosity.
Hopeful, light-filled Monday, my friends.
