Yet Will I Praise Him

Another difficult day has passed and God has proved Himself faithful, but still some moments can be very hard. My Mom's service was both honouring to my Mom and glorifying to God. That is what we hoped would happen. Please pray for my Dad as he adjusts to life without his partner.

Dwayne is slowly recovering from his surgery, but much improvement is still needed. He is not yet able to eat solid food, and struggles with nausea. There is a lot of fluid in his abdomen which is coming from his liver, and that also makes him feel ill. The road ahead of us seems so long. At times his spirits are good, but he also struggles with discouragement. I too have asked God,"How long, Lord?" Please pray that God will answer quickly. We so earnestly desire complete healing.

Hi Dwayne & Janet,
We have been praying for you. We heard of Dwayne's problem through Graham Lough in Manitoba. He is a friend of ours. We live in Fredericton, N.B. Received your update this morning. "He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater...." is all I can think of right now. God bless you and again, be assured of our prayers.

Your family is certainly in our prayers. Will be praying for your Dad that God helps him adjust quickly to being alone - that the memories of those great years with your Mom will bring him instant joy, as he reflects on their life together. But, this is a sad time for him, I am sure.

Praying for a quick recovery for Dwayne. God has brought him through the surgery, and He will bring him to a total healing, I am sure. What a testimony to the faithfulness of God, when he once again gets up to the podium to speak to his congregation! What a time of rejoicing!!

Hi Dwayne & Janet,
I had mentioned to our pastor about Dwayne and your mother's homegoing. This morning, the pastor asked the people to pray for you folks. We have a Church of around 300 people. So, they are praying for you. May the Lord's will be done. We want our Lord to do the impossible and He is certainly able. I pray for Dwayne's healing and restoration to his ministry. May it happen for our Lord's glory.
Again, be assured of our earnest prayer.

Dear Janet,
Don't know if you remember me. We only met a couple of times at the Rosthern Nursing Home when my Gr'ma Elisabeth Kroeker was there back in the 1980s. My Mom was your Dad's 2nd cousin (Kroeker side).

I had been trying to keep up with reading this blog, but didn't get to it last week at all. It was surprise news to me to hear in church today at Neuanlage Grace, that your Mom had passed on to glory.

My heart goes out to you and your family at this time. I'm sure she is well and rejoicing now, but the rest of you will miss her tremendously. May God carry you in His own arms.

To the family,

I am very sorry to hear about your loss. To actually hear the tragic things that you all had to go through is hard to swallow. What I have trouble with, however, is how did you all seem to be so accepting and calm about the terrible thing you were faced with? I am a Christian, but the one thing that I struggle with is the loss of life. I fear the loss of those who are close to me, and to hear your husband/father speak of death so calmly, I just don't understand. I see that you are all full of faith, but is there nothing in you that asks WHY???? Why to me and my family? I respect you all for your views and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Know that you are not alone.
