Sometimes I wonder just what value there is in working on this blog. But when I posted "Time out for Anne," and asked for prayers if there were any loose and available, I got over thirty comments, all prayers sent and received. Whatever other reasons for the blog, you have all become a community of prayer for Anne, for which I am grateful. Thanks.
I saw Anne yesterday in her room in the health care wing of the retirement community in which she has lived for twenty-three years. I told her of the prayers and she said about the prayers, "I can almost feel it...it's almost sensual." Shortly after that she made the decision to undergo surgery on her hip. I had to hold back the tears of joy and peace in order to make sure I got the words down right. Then of course I was amazed by her words.
So thank you all so very much for your kind words and for your prayers. Hopefully today or tomorrow she will have the surgery and we will pass on to the next phase.
