De’jaVu All Over Again

It hasn’t been the best of weeks around here.  This disease Daddy has carried around with him for at least the past 10 years is winning.  I shared with you in my last post of how weak he had become.  Ten days ago, he took a decidedly rapid downward turn .  Oh, his mind is still sharp, but his heart is under much stress because his lungs just can’t process the oxygen properly.  His activity has been limited to moving from his bed to his chair, but that in itself is almost more than he can bear.

He is tired. He is weary.  He is plain worn out.

He. Is. Ready. To. Go!

But, alas, that is in God’s sovereign hands and that is how it should be.

The events of this week have been like De’jaVu all over again!!!  Been there. Done that.  Honored to be here for him, but wishing none of us had to experience this for the 3rd time in 7 years.

Some days, I find I can’t stop the tears and others, I shift into my practical side.  Life happens and sometimes it includes things we’d rather not have to experience.  The world doesn’t stop just because our world is crashing down around us.  There are things that need to be done.  So Debbie and I are doing them.  One decision at a time.

Our hearts’ desire is that Daddy not have to suffer anymore than he already is.  Please pray God will show mercy to him in a way that will ease the suffering.  God’s Word says we have not because we ask not.  Let’s storm the throne room of heaven with our petitions on Daddy’s behalf.

Lots of love, Sharon

It Is Well With My Soul
When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul
It is well with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul.
Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul.
My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, o my soul
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul
