Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

The other day I asked a question, "What was the best thing you've seen today?" One listener sent a video. It seemed pretty innocuous at first, but the more I watched these two otters float around, the more enamored with it I became. And the ending is so understated, but so incredible to me. I hope this brings a tear to your eye.

Dear Chris,
I've been a faithful listener (WMBW) since the beginning and before that, I always enjoyed you on Open Line and liked your contributions to Prime Time America. But since listening these last minths to CFLive, you've really become a friend. Congrats on the NRB award!! Well deserved.

But in regard to your "overwhelmed" post, I'd like to say I am with you through my own medical circumstances, though to watch your kids hurting has to be awful. I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis since age 9, and now at 51 many or most of my joints are deteriorated to bone-on-bone or almost there.

Glaucoma popped up on my medical journey several years ago as well. Though usually it is well managed with eye drops for most people, that isn't the case for me. I've lost a good bit of peripheral vision in one eye and now with my general vision seems to be affected, my doctors are advising major eye surgery. It really does feel like I am wailing when I say but the eye surgery isn't the end of the story either since I still will face other vision problems that are just too crazy to try to describe here.

Add to that our daughter, who we adopted from Romania and is severely emotionally and neurologically impaired, now lives in a therapeutic residential program out-of-state. She is 14 and does relatively well in the program, which, we praise the Lord for, is soundly Christian.

Util about 5 years ago, I didn't worry about my future much. But now the future which belonged to me in my 30's or so is here and it ain't easy, brother. And now I wonder at times how much harder those days will be which are further down the road from here.

You know what? I hardly ever say that much about our troubles in one conversation to anyone. Though we do so need to let our Christian family help carry our burdens, I bet you find like I do that going to our Father is the most comforting and healing. It's amazing how much I have gained through this journey of twists and cliffs I never would have chosen myself. My husband would agree, though God works in his heart in different ways than He does in mine.

Lately, what gives me the most strength to stay faithful is remembering that this life is NOT all there is. Oh, no. (You might be encouraged by listening to Pastor Collin Smith's messages "Everything You Need for Patience" on UnlockingtheBible.org.

Aaaagh!! Sorry to be so long-winded!

Well...it's Saturday chores time, so I'm off. God bless you my brother.
