This week's passages are Jeremiah 7-20, 22-24, 29-31, 35, 49, Daniel 1-3, 2 Kings 24, and 2 Chronicles 36. Continuing a look at Jeremiah, he consistently prophesied that Babylon would conquer Jerusalem and carry off its citizens. This, of course, made him very unpopular. He was also speaking in opposition to the word being spoken [...]
This week we read Jeremiah 2-6, 22, 25-26, 36, 45-48, 2 Kings 22-24, 2 Chronicles 34-36, and the books of Nahum, Zephaniah and Habakkuk. Passages from the various prophetic writings this week all deal with God's judgment of sin - the sin of his own people who have chosen to disobey His law and worship [...]
I haven't posted a travel update in a while. If you've been following our story you know that Darlene has had a difficult month, having contracted a very bad case of cellulitis in her leg. Just to bring everyone up to date, here's a recap of the last month since the last travel blog post. [...]
This week we re-enter the historical narrative and prophetic books. The passages are Isaiah 18-27, 29-39, Micah 2-7, 2 Chronicles 32, 2 Kings 18-20. Chronologically, we are still within Hezekiah's lifetime (c. 700 B.C.). Hezekiah is only one of 4 of Judah's kings who is described in Scripture one who "did what was right in [...]

Unfortunately, when we got home (to our RV), she was so weak, exhausted, and in pain that she couldn't climb into the motorhome. She got very little sleep during the hospital stay. We got a motel room (one [...]
Much progress has been made. They've found a combination of antibiotics which seem to be combating the leg infection. The doctors are starting to tentatively utter the "D" word (discharge!). Perhaps tomorrow. She's still on IV antibiotics, but they're looking at switching to oral forms. All the prayers are much appreciated. Day #7.
Short update today. Darlene has had a bit of a setback. Blood and GI are back to nearly normal, but her leg is not responding well to the antibiotics. Infection doesn't seem to be improving and her leg is very painful. A number of specialists are paying attention, though, and we're grateful to the staff at [...]
