Okay, for all those who have been wondering - Jason and family weathered the storm quite well. The "southern" sections of this latest hurricane went through the Maryland area, and Bethesda got soaked pretty good. However, it wasn't anywhere near as wet as New York or other parts North (and East). When I spoke with him yesterday and today he seemed liked it was no big deal, and that all he noticed was heavy rain. Of course, when I spoke with him today, he had just gotten back from one of his "procedures" and he was still quite groggy from the anesthetic he had been given. I asked him about the girls and he said they had been in earlier and that Bridgette had to get them back to the room so they could lay down, since they were getting kind of cranky. My guess is that with all the bad weather they are not getting a chance to even go outside and are starting to feel a bit of the cabin fever.

We are looking forward to going out to see him and the family next month, so Linda and I are both feeling a bit anxious. Funny how I feel more anxious about going out than I did about the hurricane coming to the area. I guess I just basically knew he was going to be safe where he was, and that the Naval Base and Hospital were both on high ground, with their own power supply. I continue to pray for him, though and thank you all for all your prayers and support.

  1. Shauna and Sarah reported no loss of power or other problems...they thought the derecho storm in June was scarier and worse. I think it broke off all the weak branches...Shauna reports the leaves were stripped off so the fall colors are mostly gone, sadly.
    Hugs to you.

  2. Thankful that they're okay!
    Lifting up prayer!
    Psalms 56:3-4, 13 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me...For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

  3. Praying right now!
    Psalms 4:1, 7-8 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. (7-8) Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

  4. Glad to hear they all weathered the storm at the hospital. I was thinking about all of them there. I continue to pray for Jason and his family and hopefully the housing situation is rectified shortly, as well, the daycare for the kids. Take good care,

    All our best,

  5. Still praying in Seattle!
    Psalms 116:1-5 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul. Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

  7. So thankful for your service and the huge sacrifice you and your family has made!
    Lifting up prayers right now!
    Psalms 91:9-12 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
