My husband and I are taking one day at a time. The care facility is comfortable and staffed with gentle people. The residents seem like family after sharing meals together in the dining room for several weeks. Most are Alzheimer’s patients, but not all.
God has given me a special friend and neighbor. She has been there for me and Johannes, and I praise God for her. Family are welcome in the dining room and are served delicious meals along with their loved ones. This is a special blessing for me and my friend. Both of us may sit with my husband and be included. I have the privilege of feeding my hubby while I enjoy a good meal.
Sometimes when I feel downhearted the Lord reminds me that He has provided a veritable vacation resort for me to enjoy, and He wants me to be grateful and thank Him for it. He never reminds me of this when my heart is cracking and bleeding from watching my husband suffer. At such times He sends His angels to minister to me, and I am sure, to Johannes as well. But when I get whiny, remembrance is brought to my mind of the goodness He gives us. God knows how to reapair my perspective.
My gasoline expense has risen sharply with running back and forth, but my grocery expense has decreased and balanced it out, allowing me to carry on financially, at this point, as though nothing has changed.
Our future is unclear. We humans don’t like unclear, do we? And we are all experiencing a future that is unclear in our world today. Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. I hope to be back into the routine of posting and reading blogs and commenting soon. I am expecting God’s blessing. Blessings to all of you…
Matthew 24:36-41 – The Bible (NIV) – But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
As signs of the times suggest the end may be near, I’m comforted by the clues that Jesus gives us in Matthew 24 concerning the end times. Recall in this passage the reference to the days of Noah, remembering that the flood of God’s judgment came upon the earth. Then…
Ask yourself this: Where was Noah and his family during the flood? He was safe in the ark. So will believers be safe in the Ark of the Rapture, taken out of harms way, before the Tribulation judgment begins.
(Taken out of harms way…)
Matthew 24:40-41: Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
May we reach many with the gospel of Christ before the Tribulation period begins. Blessings…
