Resolute to Speak Life

Although many outward signs would declare otherwise, we here at Rambellwood are fighting the good fight.  The call to declare life.   Proverbs 18:21:  "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits."  

...If you all could see Bonny now.  She loves life and will speak no evil. (1 Peter 3:10)    Please understand that we are not denying the possibility of death, only choosing to give God full reign in our home and lives.

We have moved Bonny downstairs to the parlor and into a hospital bed to make things more comfortable for her.  She also had to have a catheter put in.  There was some kind of blockage that would not allow her to urinate.  Also, it was painful for her to be moved to the bedside toilet.  This has been somewhat hard for her to adjust to emotionally, but she is doing better.  We all like her downstairs. Since she cannot walk or use her right arm, we move her around through the house with a wheel chair so she can be a part.  Her pain level is stable.  She is eating three balanced meals a day and taking some very high quality supplements.  Johanna has been very diligent in applying essential oils to needed areas and other regimens for removing toxins.

I continue to be her primary caregiver, which requires me to be at home most of the time.  Any who would like to help with current expenses or outstanding medical bills would be greatly appreciated.  Hospice is a great support, coming in about four times per week. We cannot express enough how much your love, prayers and support mean to us.  This is where the body of Christ really shine. 

Loving life... from Rambellwood

Just thinking of all of you. The memories are not far of living in your barn and visiting with your family when you all came to Washington a few years back.

We hope the best for your family.
