Aunt Dot just posted this message in the comments of yesterday’s post. I am reposting it here.
I’m grateful for your love and prayers, from each one of you. I read your comments, they give me comfort, they give Andy and Lora comfort. As a mother, the heart pain of our children is deep. This is life altering. They are crushed, but finding strength in God’s promises. Thank you FLCS, you know who you are, your partnering in teaching God’s word is the foundation of our strength.
We want God’s will, and John’s wishes to be honored, above all else.
“Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, the things of this earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.”
Praying for a miracle.
Thank you sweet friends. You are in my heart.
I love each and everyone of you,
I know that God is hearing John’s name a lot right now. People all over the world are praying for him to wake up and get up, just like Jesus healed Lazarus. We trust God to take care of John and each of us. He is a good God, everyday.
We sing an old hymn in our church–Blessed Assurance–the words of which seem applicable to John today.
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.
Perfect submission, perfect delight,
visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
angels descending bring from above
echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
Perfect submission, all is at rest;
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
watching and waiting, looking above,
filled with his goodness, lost in his love.
There is nothing new to report. Again, from this afternoon moving forward, we ask that you give the Courtney/Waters family a little time alone with John.
If you have any stories of John that you would like to share, feel free to do so here. John touches the lives of a lot of people, and I know Dot and the kids are hanging on to every piece of John they can. They would love to hear your funny stories, sweet anecdotes, or anything about John you can share.
As always, when there is news, I will share it. I know we are all hungry for news of a miracle.
