Month: July 2014 Nevertheless

Have you considered that the dailiness of God’s Word ever reveals the timeliness and the timelessness of His eternal Word?  I mull this over as I reflect on the weeks gone by… the events of different days and the Co-incidents I was so privileged to see in God’s Word — His living Word — His timely, timeless, living continue reading

Month: July 2014 Homeward bound

As I write this, I’m sitting in a large dining room, high atop a mountain overlooking a sweeping valley, many miles from home.  In many ways, it feels strangely reminiscent of the time we spent in the hospital.  Looking out over the valley, the sun streaming in through the east windows, home seems an eternity away.  Nearly five continue reading

Month: July 2014 Let pain be your guide

Just as I’d left it the night before, my parking space was waiting for me to pull in.  Up the elevator and down the hall, as  I rounded the corner I heard my husband talking on the phone.  Wait.  What?  He’s making an order. Is he on the phone with Leisure? Leisure is a division of Keller Supply continue reading

Month: July 2014 Forever changed

Very early the next morning, as the week began, I realized with that new day, things would necessarily be different from here on out. Triple bypass surgery meant that, in many ways,  life forever changed.  It dawned on me that through the many years of our marriage, when one of us was ill with a cold or the continue reading

Month: July 2014 A new day

Throughout the seemingly long afternoon I received surgery updates from the nurses and soon I would hear the words I longed to hear:  He’s doing fine.  After Dr. Ryan explained a few specifics about the surgery, he said Wes was very cooperative throughout the surgery.  I still wonder what that meant. 😉  Then he asked if I had continue reading

Month: July 2014 Then came the morning

At some point in the night, I went from the chair beside Wes’s hospital bed to the couch at the window… the shade was down to darken the room but I was suddenly aware of the bright overhead lights in his hospital room.  The morning had come — and true to the testimony, all I knew of that continue reading

Month: July 2014 with thanks to Providence

I am grateful to the Lord for using the hands of these gifted men and women to bless my life in caring for my husband and saving my husband’s physical heart… Dr. Sheridan… for the heart cath and straight talk, Dr. Gardner and her encouragement, Dr. Austin for diagnosis and more straight talk… and for Dr Ryan and continue reading

Month: July 2014 Our times are in His hands

On that Friday afternoon it seemed we were leaving with more questions than answers — more of a dilemma than a solution.  Strangely, as I look back on the whole sequence of events, it wasn’t necessarily the wisest thing to do—to leave the hospital.  But at the time, it seemed like the logical next step — even though continue reading

Month: July 2014 Providence will rise before the sun

I haven’t written in awhile… well, at least not here on my blog—mostly bcz I’ve not really had motivation to write.  Words… gazillions of words are posted day after day and so many are worthwhile—but in the heaps of gazillions of words so many worthwhile things are buried.  I receive and delete entries every day.  You probably do, continue reading
