ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " D "



This past week has been most DIFFICULT.
I COULD choose to be DEPRESSED and DISILLUSIONED
but I say NO!

Our DEAR  DAUGHTER in law's DAD is in the hospital with
complications from pneumonia.

He is 92 and so sick, with DIFFICULTIES breathing and also
reliving and DWELLING on some past hard times in his life.

His hospitalization is DEMANDING a lot of time from the
family, lots of love and strength too.

At the same time my older son lost his job.

Our son has shown such DIGNITY and integrity to the bosses and
fellow workers.
He has been a good example to those around him.

These can be scary times and worry can set in.
How to pay the bills and where will the next job come from are
questions that can DESTROY one's confidence.

The ONLY way our family gets though these times is by putting
our full trust and whole DEPENDENCY in the Lord.

We choose to walk this way taking it one DAY at a time.

I pray now for healing for DIL dad.. 92 is hard and i went through the living in the past with daddy. he had parkinsons and dementia and the past was always there. i do hope he gets better soon and also i ask the Lord now to help your son find a job. my son has been out of a job for 2 years, they are barely hanging on. I do pray for a quick job to show up for your son. God bless you and your family

I am so sorry for all the bad luck you are having at this moment. I hope your DIL's dad is getting better soon and that your son gets a job soon.
We discuss the situation almost daily , saying: how did our parents do it during the war? Well let's pray for wisdom, courage and strength.

So sorry to hear the unhappy news. Your blogs are usually so bright and cheerful, but dark times come. But the Lord knows and brighter times will come again and seem all the brighter because of the dark times past. Praying for your comfort and peace. I hope to be back blogging again soon and hope to have some happy news to post about.

Only just seeing this post.... and I know how difficult life can be sometimes. My prayers are with you and your extended family. And just tell your son to hang in there... when one door closes another opens, I know it's an old cliche, but it's true.
