Outside my window…
tall buildings, helicopter landing pad,
construction of a new hospital wing and an atrium.
I am thinking…
that once again God reveals Himself so clearly
in HIS timing that we could not have
planned out any better.
I am amazed at the details He really cares about.
I am thankful for…
God using doctor’s, nurses to better my daughter’s health this past week,
and for those helping our children at home with meals, errands, diapers & compassion.
From the [hospital] learning rooms…
learning all about gallbladders, how our daughter’s was longer than normal
and in a different position, which is now understandable why her pains were
in a different area, previously not making sense to the doctors why it hurt
where it did..
From the kitchen hospital cafeteria . . .
Jessica ordered her breakfast ~ bagel with cream cheese, bacon, sprite
I am wearing…
I am creating…
with God’s help, disciples for Jesus.
I am going…
home from the hospital today with my husband & daughter!
I am reading…
Love and War: Finding the Marriage You’ve Dreamed Of
by John & Staci Eldredge
(EXCELLENT BOOK . . . review here this week)
I am hoping...
a normal blood thinning level for Jessica so we can go home from the hospital today!
I am hearing…
too much activity in the hospital – tv’s, nurses and doctors making their rounds and discussing,
food carts being pushed down the hall, phone’s ringing, medication monitors going off, babies crying, etc.
Around the house Hospital…
more of the above, along with doors slamming, children walking as they push their
medication poles, charts hanging by each door, more alarms going off, the smell of
bleach (disinfecting after a child leaves); paint and waxing the floor fumes.
One of my favorite things…
this past week is seeing the genuine care of my children for each other,
and their being servant-hearted.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
to go home and get things back to our “normal”.
Here is picture thought I am sharing…
missing home . . . can’t wait to love on my kids at home.
