" 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

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

It did it again !

This year's snow is so strange !
It doesn't just fall in flakes,.......clumps of snow were actually coming down......CLUMPS !

I thought about heading back down to the home, since it was just raining, but I was watching the news and weather to see what was expected.  5 minutes after the weather said that our county would stick with rain, the HUGE snow pattern started, and once again the driveway was covered within 10 minutes. 

I don't guess I'll be going back tonight.  I wish that hubby had a phone in his room, because I know he'll miss Piper's visit.  I'd call, but last time they didn't give him the message. 
I asked him to name 3 things that he was thankful for today, and Piper was number one, followed by heat and food, I think.   Naggy Jane here wasn't on today's list, and I understand that !  There's a fine line between encouragement and nagging, and I'm afraid I overstep it occasionally.

When I left him this afternoon, he had just finished an hour and a half of physical therapy, and they wanted him to stay in the wheelchair for another 30 minutes.  He was really tired, but he gets so tired of lying there, too !

  1. Glad they are being very persistent with the physical therapy! It will make a big difference. Sometimes I think that the difference between nagging and encouragement is largely determined by the person receiving it :)
    So even with good intentions and attempts to be encouraging...it is not always received as such. You are a VERY wonderful and devoted wifey!

  2. It's good that he is working so hard on his therapy, that is so important!
    You must be getting tired of snow by now! We are finally getting our share, it's coming down steady here and we'll have 8-10 inches by tommorrow morning. The kids are all looking forward to having a snow day, and I am too!

  3. Yes, the snow makes a big difference in the roads. You are a good driver to drive in the winter....guess you can tell I don't. I'm a summer driver only. Your hubby sounds like he is working very hard. The therapy departments are wonderful I think. They can make such a huge difference. God bless you both! May every passing day bring healing and strength.
