Last night we thought Libby had a couple of weeks. Things seem to be progressing way faster than we expected. We believe that we are counting the time remaining in a small number of days. The hospice nurse observed that they often see with their younger patients that they stay at a high function level for longer, but when their strength fails then go downhill very quickly. This certainly seems to be what’s going on.
goodbyes coming fast
This has been a very hard day so far. Helen and I spent a good bit of the afternoon remembering what a blessing Libby has been to us, and reminding Libby how much of a blessing she is to us. I would ask you to be praying for all of us to have a sense of peace, and confidence that Libby will be seeing something wondrous soon.
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be anymourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.
