There will probably never be a year that this Holy Week doesn't hold a dual sorrow and joy for me.  

This is the season we focus on our Savior's death and resurrection.  When I have Bible time with the kids in the mornings during the Lenten Season I  read how the Bible, from the Old Testament to the New Testament and Resurrection tells us of the story of our redemption.  I read how ever since the fall, God has made a way for us to come back to Him.  My Savior is alive and I rejoice in the knowledge and experience of that.  

The Holy Week is also the time that Gerardo got really sick.  Because of the holiday here in Honduras, dialysis is not open all of the normal days.  Renal failure children are not able to have dialysis all of the days that they need it.  On Good Friday Gerardo woke up with seizures, there was no help in Siguatepeque, and off to Hospital Escuela in Teguc. we went.  John held the I.V. and Gerardo in the back seat of the truck, injecting the meds as Gerardo went into convulsions.  Walter, in his pajamas, sat in the front seat with me, telling jokes and stories to keep the mood light.   Easter morning Gerardo received the emergency dialysis that he needed to live.  We rejoiced and took a breath.  

So many times I am completely helpless in situations.  I could not and can not pay for my sin.  I need a Savior.  I could not give Gerardo a perfect medical system or a new and healthy body.  He needed a Savior.  

I miss Gerardo.  He was such a part of our family and our life.  But I know joy when I think of him healed.  


I am so thankful that I/we have a perfect spotless lamb that paid the price.  Honestly it is more than I can imagine.  I am so very broken and He is so very faithful.
