Update: Josh was released from the hospital late last night after a CAT Scan and being monitored for a few hours. They believe he had a TIA. He will be having a follow-up and two more tests in the near future. THANK YOU so much for all your prayers. It is so GOOD to be covered. We have no idea what is wrought by our prayers. Things we might not see here or understand. Never believe the lie that your prayers are unimportant! Blessings on all of you.
While I’m writing this post our firstborn Josh is at the ER in Tacoma, Washington because of an episode of aphasia. His wife Laura is there with him. We’re waiting to hear about his examination and if anything serious presents itself. He and Laura were in Tacoma today attending the funeral of Laura’s new sister-in-law’s mother. It’s times like these that it makes it so hard being 1200 miles away. So what do I thank God for today.
I thank Him that He loves Josh and Laura and has redeemed them for His own.
I thank Him that He is surrounding them with His love and comfort right now.
I thank Him that our other son Dan and daughter Katie are driving to Tacoma to keep Laura and Josh company at the hospital.
I thank Him that Josh and Laura have been at the side of Laura’s brother and his new wife as they grieve over the sudden death of this new wife’s mother and they were at the funeral today lending support. (Tacoma is approximately an hour’s drive from their and our homes in Washington).
I thank Him that as soon as I told one member of my family everyone was called and asked to pray! That’s a lot of prayer warriors!
I thank Him that now my bloggy friends will be praying, too.
Pray that this mommy’s heart would be still and trust in Her loving God and Savior. (Pray for the dad, too…)
