Since last writing my dad and his wife have split twice. I am learning to wait on the Lord through this and that’s an important lesson to learn, so it’s worth it. I know that parents often get accused of meddling in their children’s marriages, but it can go the other way too! I don’t plan on trying to “fix” anything but dad knows I will help if asked. We had a good, long talk today. At the end he said he had a pain in the back of his head. When you’ve had a stroke that’s the first thing you think about. I asked if he was going to go get it checked and he said no, he’d rather just slip away. He has no desire to end up in a nursing home, and I get that. Volunteering in one myself, I have no desire to see him end up there either. At one point we were talking about possibly having to start over on his own again and that it was a shame. He said, “When someone you love begs you to come back what do you do?” Of course you go back and hope for the best. A couple hours later I called him again and he said she was back. Only God knows whether they can work it out, but it’s our prayer that they do.
It’s a good time to be taking a trip to Moravian Falls. Mary is having another weekend with ladies coming in, and I help cook and clean up and get to be where Holy Spirit is moving. He’s always up to something down there and I love to be where the action is :) After the ups and downs and sideways of this past week I’m in need of some refreshing! The wash is done, meals are cooked, and I think I’m good to go! Now if only it wasn’t so far away….
