Ryan’s Miracle Watch 2/29/20

A pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won. The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the next race, and it won again.

The local newspaper read: PASTOR’S ASS OUT FRONT.

The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in another race.

The next day, the local newspaper headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR’S ASS.

This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent.

The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day: NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.

The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10.

The next day the paper read: NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.

This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild.

The next day the headlines read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE.

The Bishop was buried the next day.

The moral of the story is:

Being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery and even shorten your life. So be yourself and enjoy life. You’ll be a lot happier and live longer!

Being extremely conscious about pollen and consistently wiping down Ryan’s room on a daily basis has been a huge help in curtailing his allergic reactions. There’s still more we can do, and we’ll be diligent in our efforts until the worst of pollen season is over.

Thank you all for praying…as well as for all the helpful suggestions you’ve been giving us!

It takes a village!

Spent the better part of yesterday morning wiping down Ryan’s room to rid it of dust and pollen. The cleaning helped Ryan for about a day and a half, but the pollen has returned this evening, and has caused him some irritation (allergies), so I’ll need to repeat the cleansing process tomorrow, and the next day, and the next…until something intervenes to knock the pollen down or get rid of it altogether…like rain. Rain would solve a number of ills. So, please pray for rain…and that Ryan will get a good night’s sleep. Thank you…

Noticed a lot of pollen on Ryan’s van yesterday, and today he’s been sneezing quite a bit. Not a good thing at all. Please pray we can keep the pollen indoors to a minimum, and that Ryan doesn’t suffer any affects from whatever does manage it’s way into his room.

We appreciate and love you all for continuing to pray for Ryan, and pray God richly blesses you for your kindness. Hope you all enjoy a beautiful weekend!

Love, Janine, Jacob, Bret and, of course, Ryan.

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 2/21/20

Didn’t post anything yesterday because I had a hegette and decided to go to bed early. Woke up disappointed, because I thought more “beauty sleep” was supposed to live up to its billing. Apparently not, as my mirror mirror on the wall this morning yielded nothing but insults. Note to self: Buy a new mirror…

Ryan was sleeping soundly this morning when I walked in. How come beauty sleep works for him?

Ryan’s Miracle Watch 2/19/20

Ryan had a small seizure this morning. Thankfully, it didn’t last long, and he seems to be fine…thanks to modern medicine…and God’s loving touch. But, he has been coughing a lot during the afternoon/evening; which has me a bit concerned, as he has a tendency to run a temp when he coughs a lot…and, he can aspirate (not good) if the nurses are not on top of him…which they usually are. The problem is he has a problem relaxing, and we don’t like that for him. Please pray that whatever’s making him cough will just go away, so he can be more comfortable. The young man has enough going on without any added complications.

Lord, Please place your healing hand upon Ryan, and heal him completely. Also, soften the hearts of people who need You in their lives. In Jesus’ wonderful name…Amen

Jeremiah 17:14   Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for You are the One I praise.
