January Storms

A husband who is having vision problems and might have glaucoma, who also is suffering serious bouts of nausea and sickness from his crohns disease.  A 12 month old grandson who is having a major surgery.  A dear sister, who is in poor health to begin with, falls and breaks her arm.  A dog, who has nobody to give him the attention he needs, sits on the porch and waits.  A brother, down on his luck, tries to drink away his troubles and winds up in the hospital with heart problems.

Throw a few relationship problems into that mix and what you have: a quagmire.

January is off to a stormy start.  And I'm not talking about the weather.

But God is good.

  Romans 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.


After going to the specialist, Gary's eyes might not be as bad as they thought.  Another test is scheduled to determine the severity of the glaucoma that they are pretty sure that he has.  His colonoscopy yesterday looked good, but we are awaiting the results of the biopsy.  He is feeling better.


Jasper's (the grandson) surgery was a success...  and after just 5 days in the hospital he is coming home today.

Waiting to be released

No surgery was needed for my sister as hers was a clean break.  She is home from the hospital, arm in a sling, and moving slowly.

I found a loving home for Cabot (my grand dog)

Here he is... living the good life.  Caged no more!

My brother is stable and we (his siblings) are coming together to try and find help for him and his predicament.  

As far as the relationship issues...  all in God's hands.  

And the music plays over and over again in my head...  and I feel a peace.
