A New Day


This has been a week of many changes.

This verse rings true for us.

Say to them, may the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile upon you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you His favor and give you His peace.
Numbers 6:23-26

My sweet son has been in the hospital for 3 weeks. Once he is stable enough to be discharged, he will be going to a long term medical facility. His heart was broken (mine was too).
Those words are very difficult for a parent to hear. You want your children to live life to the fullest and be able to accomplish their dreams.
I know that God is holding my son in His hand. When we saw him yesterday, he had a calmness, a peace about it. We also have that peace.

Thank you for your prayers. They have made a difference as they always do.

I feel so fortunate to have the people that I do in my life. My hubby has been a God send in many ways. He is always there for me, through the good and not so good. He loves my boys as if they are his own flesh and blood. He knows when I need an extra prayer or a hug. God sent the right man at the right time. I am very blessed.


I hope to catch up with some blog reading this week as well as work.
I hold you all close to my heart. There are some wonderful people in blogland and I feel very fortunate to have you in my life.

XOXO

Barb, I am so sorry to hear your son will have to go to the facility. I will be praying for both of you, as this must be so difficult. As others have mentioned I wish I could give you a big hug. Our children being sick is one of the hardest things on this earth. Please take care and know that He hears our prayers.

Dear Barb, Life is so hard isn't it? I'm so sorry for all of your hurt and for that of your family. Life seems to be full of the most difficult and heart wrenching decisions. You will be in my thoughts and I will continue to pray for all of you.
