Waiting on the Lord, and Clara

Dr Thorne came in this morning and told us that Clara can leave as soon as she eats two consecutive meals. Based on recent history, that could mean we will be here forever. In the last 24 hours she has eaten 1/4 of an apple, a few pieces of candy, and not much else. Some diet, huh?

We have been so blessed by the many hundreds of people who have fasted and prayed for Clara and our family during the past four months. I know the prayers and faith of many of you are responsible for Clara's smooth surgery and rapid recovery. There is no scientific or medical explanation for how well the past five days have gone. Thank you.

So many times we hear people apologize because all they can do is pray. Last week I was talking to a man I do business with. He said something that was profoundly insightful. He said, "I will pray for Clara. It's the most I can do."

Behold, I say unto you that whoso believeth in Christ, doubting nothing, whatsoever he shall ask the Father in the name of Christ it shall be granted him; and this promise is unto all, even unto the ends of the earth.

Clara hopefully singing her way to an appetite
