Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away
(John 15:2; NKJV).
Take away my mind:
You know my thoughts; they’re so unkind.
Take away my withered heart:
You know it’s cold and dark.
Take away my flesh:
You know my pains and weaknesses.
Take away my troubled life:
You know my inner strife.
Take away my soul:
Please make it yours, then I’ll be whole.
May there be less and less of me –
Until you set me free.
He must become greater and greater,
and I must become less and less (John 3:30; NLT).
The dust returns to the ground it came from,
and the spirit returns to God who gave it
(Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

How are you both, Alan? XXXXXX
My muscular pains have eased quite a bit, but my balance is a bit worse. Susan had a nasty choking incident last night, which was a bit scary. But in all this God is good.
Sorry, I’ve only just found your message, Alan. Life is hard, isn’t it? I’m so sorry your balance is worse, and Susan choking so badly sounds really alarming. Will she need to have her throat checked over again, to find out if anything has changed? XXXXXX
