Hubby was feeling rough and weak for the first part of this week, and finally, Thursday afternoon found him admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. Because of his weakened condition and his cancer treatments lowering his immune system, they decided to keep him for the weekend, administering i.v. antibiotics in a controlled environment.
Of course, that meant that we got the first snowfall of the season, rendering me hesitant to drive home and care for kitty, Lotti-dah, after spending last night there with him.
Blessedly, my neighbors stepped up, and provided for me to be picked up and driven home today, with an offer to be taken back again, tomorrow, LORD WILLING. Rose and Doug Tenison are true ebodiments of the word, NEIGHBOR, just the way Jesus meant for us all to be.
" 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
