“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Isaiah 40:28-31 NIV
Waiting on the Lord has taken on a whole new meaning in last two weeks. My family is waiting to see the Lord’s decision on my dad Martin, 85, who fell over his excited young dog on the farm, broke a rib and cartilage down front of rib cage, then ended up with in ICU with a digestive blockage and surgery. He has been in and out and back to the ICU, been sedated much of the second week – but he continues fighting on. It has been a difficult time for everyone and I would appreciate your prayers. I will probably continue to be fairly quiet on Seven Notes for a while yet.
Thank you all for being such a caring Blogging family!
