“But the wisdom from above is pure first of all; it is also peaceful, gentle, and friendly; it is full of compassion and produces a harvest of good deeds; it is free from prejudice and hypocrisy.”
~James 3:17 (GNT)~
PRAISE REPORT ON BILL MORRIS TO EVERYONE
We are home, praise the Lord, as of late yesterday! We give God all the glory, for truly He has done great things!
Please continue praying for Bill that he will regain his strength during the coming weeks. He has a long way to go, but we are grateful for each step toward full recovery. In time he will be up for visitors, but right now he needs to conserve his energy as he is still extremely weak. He thanks each of you for praying for him, for the texts, cards, calls – every expression of love! You are spoiling him! Home Health will be a tremendous help to both of us as he recovers. For those who may not have heard, his final diagnosis was a rare type of pneumonia: Cryptogenic Organizing Pneumonia. (It was not Covid, as first suspected.)
Blessings to all of you; may the Lord Jesus bless you as you celebrate His coming to earth for our redemption! He is so good, and we have seen clear evidence, yet again, of His miraculous ways.
Velta and Bill
