The last months since my father-in-law’s stroke, and more recently, his home going, I have so much to be grateful for! Mostly, I am grateful for how the Lord’s hand was in so many of the details. He was evident as Dave and his sister were led to make each decision. When it came time to decide on Hospice care we had decided to go with the hospital’s choice of provider. The next day my sister-in-law did not feel comfortable with the provider and I understood her concerns. I awoke the following day and the Lord impressed on my heart to call my neighbor, a social worker with another provider. She came over and I shared the concerns we had. She was able to intervene and this new provider, that we were more comfortable with, was able to take over. Dave and I were able to make some accommodations for Dad to live with us and the same day Dad was coming home on Hospice our handyman was going to complete as much as he could in Dad’s room. By 3:30 pm John finished the flooring. Between then and 4:30 my daughter and I decorated the room and made it ready for Dad’s arrival. By 5pm the hospital bed arrived along with other supplies. At 7pm Dad arrived and shortly after his wonderful nurse came too. It was like clock work! God’s hand is often in the details and we don’t see it. Other times we can’t miss it! Perhaps we aren’t always looking. Yet there are times His hand is so evident that we know we couldn’t have done a thing the way He did it! I know you have a lot on your plate. I know we can be so busy about our business. Today I pray that you will see the unmistakable hand of God in your circumstances! Look for it! He is there.
