Standing Strong

Even though I haven't seen Mom yet this morning, we both seem to be a little emotional today. As Frances just said, "wearied, worn & worried.". I think that pretty well sums it up. God is still, He's great & the same yesterday, today & tomorrow. 

As I read my devotion this morning from "Jesus Calling," it was talking about God's DAILY grace being sufficient bc He wants us to depend on Him every day. If He gave us more than we need for the moment, then we would depend on ourselves not Him.  We see throughout Scripture where God gave His people only what they needed for that day.  When wondering in the wilderness, the people tried to store up manna & it spoiled b/c that was not God's intent.  He wants us to trust Him in every second & moment when we are needy not just when we feel like we need a refresher.  We are trusting Him day by day.  Pastor Rick always says, "Every day is a good day, but some days are just better than others."  How true is that???

Mom sent me this picture of Daddy from therapy this morning & it definitely made me smile! I think will for all of you also.  He is making daily victories which we praise God for every step of the journey. far we've come since Friday, April 8!!!!  Mom sent me a text just a few minutes ago that Daddy was in Recreation therapy & guy was playing a guitar.  She said he was really enjoying that!  Please continue to pray for physical, mental, emotional & spiritual strength for all of us.  Also, pray for Daddy's blood pressure.  Dr. Kiser is working to get his med just right b/c it seems to be staying low which greatly affects his energy level when doing therapy.  They need to find that perfect balance for physical safety as well as energy.

This is a great way to start of the week & I'm looking forward to sharing more exciting victories!  Thanks once more for your continued prayers & support!

We love you all!
