Fun while it lasted 2

This is the hardest day for a long time... Just may be the worst 24 hour period since being diagnosed with PD.  Body aches, pain, worry, depression... feels like a race against time...

Appreciate prayers.  

Psalms 74:25-26 Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.


  1. Dear Merv,
    I so relate to pain, worry, depression....a race against time...only when that happens to me I do not have PD to blame it on...I have no idea what it is or where it comes from. Now when I am in that state, I will definitely pray for you. I am not in any way glad that you suffer in this way, but I am encouraged that it is not my spiritual state that brings this on..I often think something spiritually wrong, and I cannot identify it...If YOU who seeks God so sincerely struggles with the pain, worry, depression and race against time, then I know it is not a spiritual battle I face, but most likely a physical one. We all love you so much Uncle Merv!! So very MUCH!!

  2. Dear Anonymous,

    I've found that whether physical or spiritual, the ONLY solution is to seek God all the more... I'm praying for you right now...

    From Acts 17: "Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you. The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else. From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’"

  3. Praying for you, Merv, continually. Didn't know all this when I saw you at the wedding but it explains why you looked miserable. So sorry! Love you brother.
