For the glory of the sky,
For the love which from our birth,
over and around us lies...
For the joy of human love,
Brother sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth and friends above,
For all gentle thoughts and mild...
Lord of all, to Thee we raise This our hymn of grateful praise.
Thank you all so much for your prayers and concern during my father's recent surgery. We came so close to losing him and I am not sure if any of us are over it, yet. My two brothers and my sister all gathered around him on Sunday and as my brother, David, said later this past week, "Sunday was a dream. Monday was a nightmare." David gave such a good sermon on Sunday (on Caleb and being wholehearted) and my other brother, Craig, led the singing. It was all so sublime. Monday, we were left with prayer. I am home now as I needed to be with Will and my sweet children- he is the glue that holds me together. And there is nothing like the love of a child to keep things in perspective and to lift your spirits. My dad is recovering very well. He has some damage, but they never know what that will mean. This picture was of his first meal in four days. You should have heard him, "MMMM..." and that, over hospital food! We are hoping he will be home early this coming week, in time for Thanksgiving. And we have so much to be thankful for- don't we all?
