Breaking the Rules
Ash has had another rough day today. It seems she has a cellulitis infection around her G-tube. Her skin is angry red and inflamed and each time she moves she is in a lot of pain. She has spent the better part of the day sleeping. At one point Blake and I were playing catch in the living room (don't tell Trish) and Ash began to just crack up with the belly laughs. I don't know if she found the ball funny, or me, or Blake, or if she just knew she was a part of breaking Mom's house rules but whatever it was she was having a great time and we were so happy to see it. After the ball game I laid down on the couch and the Gherkin laid on my chest and hit me in the head. I am not sure why she likes that so much, she doesn't hit anyone else in the head, just me. It was really nice to get to hold her as I have not gotten to do that much lately. She eventually fell asleep there and if not for the two bottles of water I drank we would still be laying there. Thank you for your prayers for Ash today. I appreciate you more than you know.
I want to thank those who have offered support to Trish following the last few posts. Knowing that so many of you would come to her defense and love her is overwhleming. I would however like to ask that you do not attack each other. This will not give any glory to our Heavenly Father. If you would like to post a comment I ask that you sign it. I will not block anonymous comments because the only way to not allow them is to only allow comments from registered users. If I were to set it up this way about 1/2 of the comments we receive would be blocked. So I have elected to continue to receive anonymous comments. Again, thank you for your support, but let us all please respond with kindness for each other.
Trish and I are choosing to leave this part of our Ashley's story with these words.
...but now ye also put of all these things; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
Put on therefore as the elect of God, holy and beloved,bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any; even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
And above all these things put on charity...
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts...and be ye thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.
God Bless you.
