So Much Help!

Organic veggies from a local farmer and the gardens of friends
My freezer - Full of pre-made meals and organic meats - many of them made and delivered with love from our church family...
Once weekly fresh meals - prepared for Eric and the children and also a special meal according to my strict diet restrictions - thanks to all of those who continue to take on the challenge of creating something delicious out of very limited ingredients!
 My special 'bread' - a time and energy consuming project to bake - made with love as needed by loving friends and family. 
 Dressing changes - once a week dedication from my favourite local nurse - volunteer basis to save me from having to travel to Vineland weekly - thanks Rachel!
Weekly house cleaning and help with household chores from a dedicated crew who insist on coming whether I insist I can 'probably manage' or not! It is a struggle to keep up and so nice to be blessed with the peace of a clean and organized home.  Thank-you!!!
Our dear children - so well taken care of that we are able to focus on treatment while remaining together as much as possible - our many thanks
Ongoing financial assistance to make treatment possible so that we are not burdened with the extremely high costs of treatment - thank-you dear family, friends and church community! 

 All of this is proof that we are indeed very blessed by God.  Tears come to my eyes as I consider how well things have fallen into place - how well we are cared for and supported.  In addition to all of this we are blessed with words of encouragement, cards, flowers, gifts and above all prayers.

We prayed so long for God to open the eyes of the doctors/specialists so that they would be able to figure out what was wrong with my body.  We were willing to accept that answers and the possibility of healing was not in His plan for our family but in His perfect timing, which we do not understand, He has done that, and more.  Thank-you most of all to our Father - who instituted the body of the church also as a means to help us be a hand and foot to one another.

"He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love" Eph 4:16 NLT
