We had a really good day here. It started off kind of rough as I was waiting for Leann to get here with the kids so I called Dad and Grandpa before church. It was kind of hard to be here on Father's Day. We couldn't get the computer connection to work this morning so listened to a CD sermon which was really encouraging. Then caught the afternoon Tremont service. It was just really encouraging and lifted my spirits.
I had a bit of headache this morning so it started out a bit rough but then took some tylenol. I was able to get out and walk around a bunch more, and overall had more energy today and feeling better. After church Duane & Bonnie Rocke and their kids came down to visit, which was really nice. As I told Duane, everyone who comes or emails or sends a card lifts my spirits. It doesn't take great words, just the simple act of caring means so much to each of us. And Leann read me some of the emails we've been getting. It touches me so much.
They've stopped draining my lumbar drain now so I should be able to sleep longer tonigh without having to wake up every two hours. Leann is going to spend the night here in the room with me for the first time. Thanks again for all your prayers.
Our encouraging phrase from the day is: Face each day with courage knowing God is in charge.
Derek & Leann
