He bought a swim pass and is visiting the city pool to swim laps twice a day. He's doing his back exercises and hanging upside down for 5 -10 minutes a day. : ) -His best friend bought him an inversion table the other day! Such a thoughtful gift!
He's also put himself on a diet and isn't eating much and he looks thinner by the day. He is keeping his spirits up by praying a lot more than usual, reading tons of the Bible and other spiritual books, memorizing scriptures and writing a spiritual book of his own. (I SOOO love this guy!)
This is definitely a trial for us. These words from Oswald Chambers were comforting today:
(I love, love, love Oswald Chambers!)
"Clouds are those sorrows or sufferings or providences within our personal lives which seem to dispute the rule of God. It is by those very clouds that the Spirit of God is teaching us how to walk by faith. If there were no clouds, we should have no faith. 'The clouds are but the dust of our Father's feet.' The clouds are a sign that He is there."
So thankful that He is here,
