When I sat in the dentist chair he noticed that something was wrong and asked how I was feeling. I told him the bad news about my daughter's last ultrasound. My daughter's unborn little boy is missing his left hand, and how hard it was to see my daughter Christine and her husband going through this terrible news and trying to come to grip with this reality that they will have to deal with.
The dentist was very sympathetic and told me that he remembers my daughter Christine very well and asked me if I wanted him to pray over her and her baby, her husband and us grandparents as well. I was very touched by his prayer and a shiver went through me as he prayed. Then he ask if I wanted him to include them in his daily prayer of intercession and I said " Yes please do". He rushed to get a piece of paper to write her name down so he would remember them in his prayers.
|MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER CHRISTINE ON VACATION WITH HER HANDSOME HUSBAND|
AT A HAPPIER TIME. THEY WILL SMILE AGAIN...
Sadness comes in waves and tears weld up in my eyes whenever I think of them and their little guy.
It was a beautiful day to work outside today but somehow I didn't feel like it so I stayed inside and puttered around the office that I share with my husband and did some filing, paid some bills and tidied up my little corner of the office.
I've been taking care of a sick older calf for the last four days and she had a high fever and was not eating her grain as she was being weaned off her milk. She's been on penicillin for 4 days and shows some improvement but gets extremely short of breath still. I've been very concerned about her too as I never had an older calf getting sick in my care like that before. She has started to eat her grain a little bit this morning.
Thanks for allowing me some space to sort things out before posting my sad news.
Surely God's hand is somewhere in there but we can't see it right now. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. JB
