I want to say a warm thank-you to Hope readers who have remembered me in prayer the last few days. I am home from the hospital, and while a little worse for the wear, am grateful that things are stable. Your messages of Christian love and support were so deeply appreciated!
The Scripture says that we are to give thanks in everything. I am thankful to the Lord for medicine, wonderful caring doctors and nurses, good hospitals and all the help available to those with medical needs. I’m also thankful for a loving family who cheered me up. One night Sam, Tom and William all came to visit together, and seeing their smiling faces coming into the room was such a delight. Son Jon then also came to visit after work, even though it meant a drive for him, and just sat and talked for a long time. I thank the Lord for my precious family.
I’m glad to be home again, and while the next few weeks are “crunch time” as the doctor put it, as we near the arrival of our little girl, we are trusting the Lord for the outcome. Being able to write and post on the Hope site is a peaceful way to spend time with my feet up. Thank you for stopping by, as always. Our hope is in the Lord, and the redemptive element in difficult times and weakness is the reminder that without Him, we can do nothing!
“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms…”
