RESTING WELL

Witt and Melanie are both resting well. Witt is back on the road to recovery, we just don't know how long it will take. The big discussion today with one of the doctors was whether or not this was still the same virus or actually some new virus. I believe the conclusion was that he just wasn't totally over the original virus and nothing new. He continues to require very little oxygen but he really needs that small amount to keep his oxygen saturation up. Today I was reminded that I am to love the Lord, my God, with all my heart, my soul, my mind and my strength. God is to always be my focus and my strength, my energy is to be spent loving Him even(and maybe especially!) while Witt is in the hospital. It's so easy to lose focus and spend all my strength thinking about the situation when the only true way to never run out of strength is for Him to be my focus. Today I praise God for always being in control, I praise God for a hospital like Texas Children's, I praise God that He has never been easier to "find" than here in Witt's room!

We all have to remember to love our Lord and stay focused on Him in every way in every second of every day. He promises to be with us always in all ways. We just have to stay in tune to Him. I know you are doing just that! Precious Witt is in the loving arms of God just as we are. He knows exactly what each of us needs during every second of every day and He provides for us. Rest and gain strength from God. I am so thankful that God is in control and His plans are perfect! We keep Witt and the family in our prayers and in our hearts.
Love you,
Gayle and Bobby
