Rejoice in the Lord always

It has been good to be home and Jonathan is feeling better everyday. He still has occasional head aches, several medications to juggle, and a significant gap in his field of vision. We still do not know if this is a temporary or permanent loss. But this hasn’t really slowed Jonathan down: on Saturday he had the energy to stop by at Danny’s soccer game, on Sunday we went to church, and today he made me take him into work for a couple of hours… unbelievable!

We are very blessed to have both our moms still with us. Their company and their help with the children and the everyday needs around the house is invaluable.

On Monday morning April 4th we will have a follow-up appointment with both Dr. Markert, the neurosurgeon, and Dr. Nabors, the neuro-oncologist. They will remove Jonathan’s staples, perform a post-surgery assessment, and discuss and determine the best plan of action going forward based on the biopsy results.

May God continue to give us grace to practically live out Philippians 4:4-7 “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

  1. Your comments are encouraging and inspiring. It is a blessing that Pastor Jonathan is making good progress. I pray that Monday will be a day of victory.

  2. Karla, I can’t believe Jonathan was at church Sunday!! I didn’t see either of you but I would have been surprised to see Jonathan. That is just simply amazing! I praise the Lord with you both that he is doing so well so fast! Praise the Lord!!!!!
