NEW COMPASSION

Milton, here for Kristy:

Kristy is feeling better. Pain and nausea are under control. She has experienced a digression in memory and is experiencing greater confusion. We are praying that God will give her renewing in her mind and comfort in her heart. We're not sure how long she will be at the Hospice Center. We will wait and watch what happens.

Our daughters and grandchildren arrived this afternoon and she enjoyed seeing them all. She seems to perk up when friends and family come into the room and she certainly enjoyed having her grands with her.

In her typical "Let's Go!" fashion, she wanted to go home when they left. Because of the confusion she couldn't understand why she couldn't go. That's hard.

Last evening when we arrived and I walked into the Center following behind her, I experienced something I never thought I would face. It was a very humbling, heart-rending experience to see the dearest, most precious love of your life taken into Hospice, even for a couple of days.

I'm very thankful that we know the Lord and He comes to help us when we have need.

The events of the last hours have given me new compassion to reach out to others who are hurting. We comfort others with the comfort we have receieved.

Milton, thank you for letting us hear from you again. I know this is so difficult for both you and Kristy. You're being brave and true to your commitment to your beloved, and God is going to see you all through. He said HE'D NEVER LEAVE US, NOR FORSAKE US....and HE HASN'T and HE WILL NOT! I can visualize the angels just keeping watch by the door there, and hovering all around both of you. The presence of the Lord surrounds you. I know the confusion is so difficult for you, Milton - & knowing she really can't understand why she can't go with the girls. Just know I'm praying. I'm praying now and through the night. Everyone loves you both. More than that, GOD LOVES YOU. <>< Cathy (Tennessee)

So much love abounds in your family. I'm reminded of that song, as you sit there beside Kristy - it says, "In this very room, there's enough love for everyone......." I'm sure you remember hearing it. God bless you.

I've been following your journey and I can identify with your pain. The ache can seem so unbearable at times,but God's comfort is truly there! God sent his son Jesus into this world for you and Kristy. When Jesus left this earth He sent the Holy Spirit to each of us. He's there with you right now. Of course you know this already, but sometimes it helps to hear it from someone else. God is sustaining you and he is watching over you. And yes, His angels are hovering over you and like a new born baby, he is carrying you in his loving arms.

My prayer is that Kristy will be pain-free and have clarity of mind so she can enjoy time with her loving family. We also continue to pray for a complete healing, in the wonderful name of Jesus.

We love you Milton & Kristy & family. Our hearts are with you.
