An Update on Treena

Share

“It is called a “guarded” situation by the medical profession. Treena is in the midst of a great deal of loving care, both professionally and with our immediate family, all our children are with us today…and, of course our fellowship of believers and dear friends from way back are in prayer.

I find a small quote from a favorite store of sermons by Alexander MacLaren a great comfort as we face the many choices that our advanced technologies provide.

“it is in trying to do what we cannot do that we do best what we can do”

Our lives, over the past 41 years, having been”‘trying to do” the will of our Father and to finish the task of testifying to the grace and glory of God. This, whilst we have breath, remains the greatest desire of our hearts. Humanly it’s hard but in “continuing to try” our prayers are that we may “do best what we can do” and that includes being comforted with the love that we are receiving for us by everyone who cares so deeply.

It is far from an empty phrase to say the the outcome is in our loving Father’s hands. That really is the reality in which we live out our lives and with that our family is being strengthened, encouraged and comforted.

Please do join with us that His will be done.

Love Graham.

    “Do best what we can do.” A profound thought in just a few words. A worthy goal.

    Prayers for you and your wife, you have given so much to so many, may that gift come back to you now, in full measure and over-flowing.

    Just was reading your book “Creative Choices” and remembering how I enjoyed watching your TV shows when I went on Wikipedia.com to see the latest. Also did not see any mention of Treena’s passing in Treena’s Corner . Some how found a post by a dear friend of Treena’s with a lovely tribute poem. I would like to post a tribute quote by Anais Nin, “When you make the world tolerable for yourself, you make the world tolerable for others.”
    Deepest condolences to your wonderful and inspiring family.

    To the Kerr family… I am truly sorry for the families loss of Treena. My heart goes out to all of you. I know the feelings you must be facing as my mother passed on Sept. 26. This void we feel can be very deep and I pray that in your family it will be filled with wonderful lasing memories of a woman whom loved you all very much.

    Currently I am 60 years old (Praise the Lord). I began experiencing deep loss at age 6 when my father, my very best friend, succumbed to leukemia. The same year, my only grandparent. Through the coming years several pets, other family members, and my mother when I was 25. Then the bereavement of infertility and the inability to adopt leaving my husband and I childless in our thirties. This was a crushing blow to our marriage and thus we sought divorce. This is when Jesus intervened in our lives through His word and saved us from despair and destruction to eternal hope and joy. One major lesson He impressed upon us was “the Earth is the Lord’s and everything in it”. Wow – let that soak in for awhile. We found peace and release in learning that we do not own anything here – not our family, our pets, our spouses, our finances, not our provision. The only thing we possess is God’s will for our lives in whatever term limits He desires. All we have is a gift from Him and only a loan that we may share in His inheritance – His Kingdom. We must cherish everything and everyone in our lives as His possession for which we are temporary stewards. This is a humbling and empowers us to release our grip on the here and now and focus on our journey home. Since our reconciliation we have survived breast & uterine cancer, two near fatal bee sting attacks, and served in church ministry for 20 years. We’ve been married now 43 years and are our best friends. We pray to see Jesus coming in the clouds – He is faithful.

    Wow Graham – thought of you this morning while watching Rachel Ray cooking show and remembering how I used to watch your show decades ago!! My condolences also on Treena. An amazing remembrance was that I lived in Southern California in the early 70’s. I attended Melodyland Christian Center w/Pastor Wilkerson back then. I was seated directly behind you and Treena the Sunday you both went down front and were slain in the Spirit!! Literally in the seat behind you – and I remember now you both were lead of the Lord to do something w/married couples out west – think Colorado? Could be mistaken – I was about 24 or 25 then – 65 now!! Anyway after all these decades – you just popped into my head. Have been back in New York since then – on Long Island where I was born. Our Lord is amazing and so are His plans for each one of us. I remember that day at Melodyland w/you and Treena there so well – hadn’t thought of it in years. My best to you!!

    Dear Graham,
    Long long time no see, but you are often in my thoughts as is Treena.
    After working in the media most of my life I was called to the office of Priest. From the last published reply I gather that Treena has moved into paradise. What a joy to be with Our Lord, What joy to hear these words “This Day You Will Be With Me In Paradise” was we move from this life to the next.
    I awoke this morning guided to look you up on the net. I guess you know that you can look Treena up on The Father’s net, by prayer.
    I am glad you found a better Director than I, let him continue to be your guide.
    Love in Jesus Christ.
    Fr. Ray Eyles. (Gold Coast Australia)
