Just a little note of praise this morning! I know some of you have been praying for Mom. She had a mini stroke and several minor things - but she is home from the hospital. My sister is with her this week. How the Lord is going to work this out - we don't know yet. She cannot stay by herself anymore -I feel sure she will need someone around the clock. Keep praying for her.
I have to go back Thursday to see the Rheumotologist. Need to find out what was in the 12 viels of blood they drew! Also the MRI report and the lung function test. I am feeling better except for my dry lips. Just praying that all of this is something that will pass. But for this moment I am fine.
I found this poem by Annie Johnson Flint.
He's helping me now -- this moment,
Though I may not see it or hear,
Perhaps by a friend far distant,
Perhaps by a stranger near,
Perhaps by a spoken message,
Perhaps by the printed Word;
In ways that I know and know not,
I have the help of the Lord.
He's keeping me now -- this moment,
However I need it most,
Perhaps by a single angel,
Perhaps by a mighty host.
Perhaps by the chain that frets me,
Or the walls that shut me in;
In ways that I know and know not,
He keeps me from harm and sin.
He's guiding me now -- this moment,
In pathways easy or hard,
Perhaps by a door wide open,
Perhaps by a door fast barred.
Perhaps by a joy with holden,
Perhaps by a gladness given,
In ways that I know and know not,
He's leading me up to Heaven.
He's using me now -- this moment,
And whether I go or stand,
Perhaps by a plan accomplished,
Perhaps when He stays my hnad,
Perhaps by a word in season,
Perhaps by a silent prayer,
In ways that I know and know not,
His labor of love I share.
