Look up!

Thank you all for the prayers. I just have time to allow comments and fill you in a bit.
FIL has made it out of the hospital into rehab. We were told he is a good candidate for rehab and now the work begins. It will take time to tell what motor skills will return and what will not. We expect him to be there for 2-6 weeks. His salvation is still our number one prayer. MIL is staying with us, and is normally in good spirits. When she isn't I pull out the chocolate pills :) (My chocolate chip jar) She has always been a big fan of chocolate. I am reading the book of John to her at night, and that seems to calm her down before sleeping. My husband spoils her well with hugs and listens so she is well loved and her daughters are are the phone with her alot from a long distance, and help in many ways. Our children and their wives and the great grand-daughter were all in the hospital on Saturday which helped FIL. I am praising God that I know I am allergic to Gluten this time aroudn of caring for her, so I am not in as much pain as last time. I also found a natural anti inflammatory (Arnica Montana) to keep swelling down, as I am allergic to chemical antiinflammatories and pain killers. These things and prayer are holding me up. I'll be spending time at the Rehab with MIL, so our days will be busy. I look forward to sharing some progress soon. God bless, and keep looking up, because Jesus is coming soon!
I was listening to the news this morning and there was a murder suicide of a family, by the dad, who was an unemployed financial planner. Things looked so bleak that he couldn't take it anymore...I am so glad I have my HOPE in JESUS and pray that yours is in Jesus, the Prince of Peace as well!


For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. Isaiah 9:6-7
Blessings, Monika

I am praying that God will keep you strong through this trial. I will certainly be praying for the salvation of FIL. What a comfort to know the Heavenly Father who gives us the strength to endure.

Blessings,

Thanks so much Cheri, that is a mouth full coming from you! You have been living it yourself. It is good to know we can trust our Jesus with everything! MIL and I just came to her place for awhile to do laundry while they run more tests at the hospital, and we will join him for dinner.
