So sad to read Rick VanDiver's comment from yesterday. But, what y'all may not know is that I've fought negativity and faithlessness from others from the very beginning of this journey. Luckily, I had enough positive support and energy around me that I was able to ignore it then, and I will do just the same now. Rick IS making progress...just ask anyone who has been to see him...ask his kids, they are very forthcoming children and will tell you exactly how their daddy is doing. The fact is, it doesn't matter...God is in control and He will heal Rick. Thanks Rick V for always saying positive things and reminding others that they should do the same. And thanks to everyone who continues to support us...I still recieve letters and messages from perfect strangers being the hands and feet of Christ.
My Aunt and Uncle, Tricia and TJ came to see us today. Rick was glad to see them and was able to turn his voice on and talk a little bit. Tricia and TJ were able to take the kids back to Seymour for me after a stop in Post to watch Shad Wayne play b-ball against the Harlem Ambassadors...Melyssa Elliott was playing, too and Lyssa said it was a fun game. Rick mainly took it easy today, resting up for an awesome week to come.
For let him who wants to enjoy life and see good days (good-whether apparent or not) keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from guile (treachery, deceit). 1 Peter 3:10 The following is Joyce Meyers' Life Point regarding this verse: If we want to enjoy life, which is possible even when there is no apparent reason for us to enjoy life, we must keep our tongues free from evil. If we speak positively and keep the truth of God's Word on our lips, we will have joy even in the midst of difficulties.
God Bless and Good night!
