Who are your friends and WHO is JESUS to You?

Posted: June 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

So to give you the Quick Update, Carroll has been moved to San Remo Rehabilitation Center for 2-3 weeks of IV therapy in an effort to save her from the infections that threaten her life. You know where to get me if you want to know more. On To Jesus and our Friends.
As many know, Carroll became very ill in 2003 after contracting MRSA during a hip replacement at Presbyterian Plano. She had incredible docs who saved her and made her almost whole again. All of the prayers from everyone known and unknown carried the docs and us through. She has had numerous recurrences with MRSA and the consequences of treating it so aggressively and as we have gone through this over the last 8 years, many of the people who were close to us while she was mobile and active have dropped away. Some have avoided us. Some have come to help and live and run out too. They say you find out who your real friends are during tough times and so we have.
While that trend was happening there was a different trend that I noticed. I’ll call it the “Jesus Trend.” It was the actions of the people who have stuck with us during this long haul that’s not done. Each doing a small part, calls, prayers, cooking, washing dishes (you know who you are and I love you for that),contributing to things to help pay our bills, medical equipment, hugs, understanding and kindness beyond measure plus incredible dedication to what you believe in. Jesus. Carrying out the actions and works that you are called to do on a daily basis. That “Jesus Trend” is the thing that transcends the worldly things we have to put up with and your collective Jesus behavior has made a huge difference for us.
I needed to let all of you “Jesus Freaks” out there know that you stuck with the right guy (you knew that anyway) and have kicked ass for Carroll and Me. We are eternally grateful for your love and support.
Peace and Love from Us Both
Paul
