A reasonable week.
Georgie been getting a bit chesty over the last couple of days.

"Have you not known? Have you not heard?The everlasting God, The Lord, The creator of the ends of the earth, does not grow weary; tere is no searching of His understanding.
He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength(causing it to multiply and making it to abound)(11Cor 12v9) Even youths shall faint and be weary, and (selected) young men shall feebly stumble and fall exhausted; but those who wait for the Lord (who expect, look for, and hope in Him) shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift up their wings and mount up (close to God) as eagles (mount up to the sun); they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.
Isaiah 40 v 28 to 31

A nice afternoon too hot outside to do anything and all tired we watched a couple of movies. Georgie in her room got a bit agitated so we brought her out and she began to faintly smile, settled down and spent the afternoon waking and dozing off. Took Georgie for a late walk and came home by moonlight. All quiet, no mozzies now and a good chance to pray while walking.
Lately Georgie can become quite agitated at times and sometimes we believe she is just lonely.
The other morning she let out a bit of a frightened sort of cry but you know after just a minute or two of talking with her and touch she just settles again. We can only imagine what she must think at times when she comes to a bit as she can't communicate in normal ways. Though sometimes her mumblings sound a bit like words.
Probably been about the best month now for her for some time.
Ange said a lady at church prayed for Georgie's healing yesterday up the front. Do you know it is a hard thing for so many people to do? There are still some who will pray for what is impossible because they believe it is right and that God honours faith. I don't expect them to but it is encouraging when someone does just the same.
It is interesting to see what is in some folks isn't it? This is tremendously encouraging especially in a church which doesn't believe in miracles - they are basically sticking their neck out ("The age of miracles has passed away" I am told- oh does that mean God has also "passed away" I think?)
We have had a number of well-meaning people "suggest" to us to put her into some kind of "home"- what do you call our place? I think to myself. James and Em were mortified to think of that happening.
So again thankyou for your prayer by which God has been answering and giving us the ability to do this.

Friday arvo

Well we have been very blessed by a good period of stability with Georgie ever since Christmas. A chest infection has been threatening to start but thankfully hasn't. We have been very vigilant taking Georgie for early morning and late evening walks when it is cool enough for about 40 mins each. It takes time but is so good for her and it has also been good family time and exercise. Em especially loves to take her.
So we thank you for your prayers and we thank God for showing us so much grace.
Our final house occupation certificate was issued this week also so we can now "legally" live in our house!

Wed 7th

Dear all, Georgie has been having a really good time since Christmas with just nothing going wrong. Had many long walks up the bush road at the end of our street with fresh air, beautiful mild weather and greenery after 5 inches of rain over the Christmas/New year period.
Last night she awoke vomiting at midnight and for the next hour and a half we had a battle on our hands to clear her airway. She had a temp this morning. Can all change so suddenly. Always trying to make the most of the calm periods and being thankful for them while still praying for better times for her. Always hard to see any relapse after a good time as well as you get your hopes up.

Have had a few visitors over Christmas which has been good. Em and James had a week down the coast with mum and dad.
"In this world you will have trouble but do not fear for I have overcome the world."
Some other things to pray for:-
That the home nursing would be able to continue.
That Ange might get a chance to do something else like a bit of relief teaching
