Mercy

Thanks for your kind words regarding the transplant situation. Writing it out helped me to get to a more calm place about it all. And Eric managed to find his calm place as well. We'll wait, with mercy and forgiveness, just like Christ waits on all of his children.

"Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name." 1 Peter 4:12-16

Anita,
I just read this post and the one before it. I'm so sorry. This must feel devastating. I will pray for your whole family in this situation.
