" 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

Crisis averted

I came back to the hospital from a quick trip home, on Thursday, and hubby was in full crisis mode.  I was shocked......everything had been stable when I left for a couple of hours.

They had administered what they said was one last chemo shot, and he had a horrible reaction AGAIN.  Suddenly, I was surrounded by people telling me "this is it".  I called my daughter to come from Virginia, but she couldn't get an early flight, and it's a 10 hour drive.  They told me she wouldn't make it in time, so they were precious in setting up 'face-time', and she got to talk to him and see him.

They moved him to in-hospital-hospice, and he hung in there quietly all evening, on a bi-pap mask, so that we couldn't understand him when he wanted to speak to a few visiting family members.  When they left, he and I dozed off for about 3 hours, and then my daughter and her family arrived, around 4 a.m.

Our daughter, Kelley, and her papa
Long story, short, he's STILL hanging in there, and we've had 2 1/2 days of good visiting and just relishing each other's company and his still being here !

The LORD knows his timing, not the doctors, and we are so thankful.  He's had good hours, and more mellow hours, but was able to smile and participate in picture-taking with the grandkids yesterday !  Oh, how we praise God for these days !
Our son-in-love, Tim, and James
Our grandchildren, Seth, Zoe, their pawpaw, and Tim, jr.


  1. Oh Dolly, I know how difficult these times are for you, thank God for your faith! Can you imagine how hard it would be without God to lean on. I'm praying for you.

  2. You are right about the Lord's perfect timing. Keep your heart soft towards Him and enjoy your time together. Your husband and you are in my prayers.

  3. Precious, precious pictures!!!...So glad daughter/family made it safely, and you can all be together during this time...


Thanks for stopping by !
