Steady My Heart.


Even when it hurts
Even when it's hard
Even when it all just falls apart
I will run to You
Cause I know that You are
Lover of my soul
Healer of my scars
You steady my heart
~Kari Jobe

You can tell the disease is progressing in Larry. There were a couple of moody outbreaks over the weekend and very little sleep for him. The past couple of days have been relatively quiet and he and my Mom have gotten quality time together and you see glimpses here and there of his normal self. We have a new understanding of the pain families experience when a loved one is diagnosed with a terminal illness. So many emotions and we're all experiencing it differently. But as we know, God knows it all and we're drawing strength from our faith and Larry's faith. And asking him to steady my heart. Steady all our hearts.

That's pretty much the update on the home front.

Love y'all.
