still the same.....

well, it's 11:45 p.m...things are much the same. dad is stable as far as "vitals" go. it is pretty quiet and peaceful up here right now. it is difficult to wait and wait and wait, but i try to remember that no negative steps back is something to be thankful for. it has been about 52 hours since the completion of the surgery and the most critical time is the first 72 hours. we know that God is good and in control yet it is still not easy.....for now, we will wait.

I just want to share some encouragement from Paul with all of you. At times like these there is nothing more encouraging to my spirit than the Word of God.

Ephesians 3:14-21 says, "For this reason I kneel before the Father...I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now to him who able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."

Michael & I are praying this for each of you.

Love,
Michael & Abigail Crawford

Jim's a tough man, and I'm sure he will be up and running (and maybe fixing the stairs, or throwing out that chair) in no time! We should all focus and pray for his well-being, and together, with God on our side, ultimately, it will be a battle we cannot lose. We love you guys,

Paul and Rebecca Harrington
