We want to start this Pause with a big THANK YOU to ALL who have been praying for Geraldine; we truly have been blessed by this.
Then we want to THANK ALL who emailed us - MY APOLOGY to those who thought my list of jobs for Geraldine was serious, it really was not meant to be, and THANKS to all those who replied with a funny response. I think we received more responses to this email than ANY we have sent before ! Some people 'reprimanded me' for expecting Geraldine to do all that and then some questioned why I thought Geraldine would not be able to cope with all of that, but everyone promised to PAUSE, and Pray ! I would LOVE to compile all the responses and share them with you - there were just SO MANY ! I hesitate to say which was my 'favourite response' and don't know if I am going to get to respond to them, but we did enjoy hearing from you.
THEN about Geraldine, the operation does seem to have been successful but the physiotherapy to get the range of motion back in the shoulder is NOT PLEASANT. We will be seeing the physio every day this week so would value your continued prayers and we will see the surgeon again on the 23rd August.
Fortunately we don't have too much travel scheduled in the next two weeks but will be travelling to Bronkhorstspruit to share in a Church Camp with a supporting Church this next weekend.
Lastly, to someone who uses the reference 'Blessings': we don't know who you are or if you even receive these emails, but THANKS !
THANK YOU for carrying some of our burden as you PAUSE, and give Thanks !
Richard and Geraldine
