I write this morning not having slept. I am in a great deal of physical pain...and yet as I lie here awake praying; I know God is with me. Great is thy faithfulness runs through my head as I sit here writing. God is great and greatly to be praised for all He has seen our family through this week. God is great and greatly to be praised for all He has seen our family through this week. I saw my father last night with Tom, my mother and my aunt and all I can say is thank you Lord~ The pain is intense and yet my father has a good perspective on that has transpired...He is praising the Lord for his family...his grandchildren especially who love him so~ He has a long road ahead of him and yet I know God will continue to be faithful and meet him right where he needs him too...and walk him through this journey. Though it may not be easy and though it is not he would have chosen the strength will come from his heavenly Father. I believe that God will use this for his glory, honor and praise. So I sit here with all this many thoughts, emotions swirling through my head and as I sit here and reflect; I am amazed what our family has come through but I am not surprised. The Lord never promised me an easy road...and the things that I have been through make me appreciate life more...my husband more..my children more....my parents more...my loved ones more~ would I change anything? Perhaps~ But! God put me right where He wants me...so there must be a reason for this..something beyond my earthly comprehension...so I wait and live and hope and pray and one day I will know how or why but until than I trust in my loving Saviour.
