Clark is doing better. He slept well last night and slept LATE this morning. Bless his heart...he is so hungry. ALL.THE.TIME. He's had so many smoothies and milkshakes. The boy wants some substance, but he has to be careful. Yesterday at our "Christmas meal" with Jim's family...and against my advice...he decided to attempt eating a steak. He cut it up into tiny pieces, but no matter how much you cut up meat...it's not a milkshake. He said that even tho it made his mouth bleed, it was still the best thing he had eaten since Thursday night.
He has only had 1 pain pill so far today. I think maybe he is turning a corner. Hope so, anyway.
This afternoon, Holly and I ran some errands. Actually, I just needed to run to the grocery for milk and nanners. I almost met Jesus.
People be acting crazy.
I know this time of year can be so hard for many people. You only have to be out in public a short time to see people rushing around, racing through parking lots, being rude. You can see the stress on their faces, the sadness in their eyes.
What is the answer for hurting hearts?
I am reminded of the words of the song, "Bless Us All." It's from the Muppet Christmas Carol.
I know, right?
Who would've thought a song sung by a bunch of puppets would make me cry every time I hear it?
"Bless us all, that as we live, we always comfort and forgive. We have so much that we can share with those in need we see around us everywhere...Bless us all with playful years, with noisy games and joyful tears. We reach for You, and we stand tall, and in our prayers and dreams we ask You, bless us all."
Jesus. He is the answer for hurting hearts.
"I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the world." John 16:33
