Down Day

Today has been one of those days.....ya know when you just want to crawl back in bed, pull the covers over your head and stay there until ... idk Jesus comes back!

Yep I had that kind of day.

My dad was told to wait yet another week. That he will have to take another biopsy test at the mayo next week. His regular dr. sent his info to Mayo but guess what they sent someone elses file instead of his....HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?? His cough and ability to breath wasn't good today and he shared with me there are two people he tries hard not to cough while on the phone with them....me and my nana (his mom) because we freak out. I said Dad....crying or getting emotional is freaking out to you? well yes honey it is....ok I need to work on NOT crying while we talk but it hurts so much to hear him suffer and cough with only being able to say about 3 words between coughs. I love my dad so much and He is just soooo healthy but this will prove to be a benefit no matter what we find out I am sure! He will be taking a PETSCAN test on Fri. which is where he drinks some radioactive dye and it will light up it his body and that too will now go to mayo next week. He was at least encouraged by his new Mayo dr. and says other than this cough he is doing well. Thankyou Lord for this. In my quiet time I know that while we are all waiting for the news, the treatment etc. that God is with all of us and that He is moving in the hearts of all of us...My dad, stepmom, my brother, my nana ...He shows me, He tells me in His Word not to worry. Without Him...this truly would be impossible. I know we all will grow and learn so much from this and I am thankful for all that He has done thus far. I am grateful that we have each other to lean on....some don't have the Lord, some don't have a church family or so many praying for them, some don't even have insurance or family to support them. God is good....all the time, EVEN WHEN WE ARE WAITING and his timing is PERFECT, even when we wish He was sometimes faster.

Had some other issues come up that are heavy on my heart and am laying these at the feet of Jesus. He knows better than I how to help, encourage, and handle each of these situations.

If you read this post please pray for my Dad ~ Doug.

In Him

"EVEN WHEN WE ARE WAITING and his timing is PERFECT, even when we wish He was sometimes faster."
This is such a powerful, amazing and true thought! I know how hard the waiting can be for something you think you can't wait another second to know... but we must keep reminding ourselves that HIS timing is perfect! I think I need to make something to hang where I will see this everyday... "HIS timing is PERFECT"... I know I could use a daily reminder! Praying for you and your family Loren.

I will pray for you and your dad. I pray that today is a better day.....Yes, Andy Stanleys book would be a good one for your family to study together. It would be good for a small group or a regular Bible Class. It has a study guide in the back of the book.....I grew up in Lawton, Oklahoma. I haven't lived there since I went to Abilene, Texas to go to school....Thanks for dropping by and leaving comments. Have a great day.
