I really need to update, but my heart isn’t in it! Although Daddy is doing quite well physically (again, for a 90 year old man with congestive heart failure) he has been very depressed lately. He was much better yesterday afternoon – engaged in conversation with Jeanne and I, and even told a story or two – but we’re not sure if that was a one-time thing, or if he’s on the upswing. I do believe that our cry for prayer was answered, and the Lord gave Daddy a bit of sunshine outside and in his heart yesterday!
Daddy’s depression has me a bit down, too. As you saw in my last post, I’ve been missing my grandbabies so very much! As I drove to work in the beautiful Spring-like morning, I began thinking how much Emily would LOVE this weather we are having right now – sunny, upper 40s to lower 70s for temps, grass and flower buds beginning to pop out. Emily LOVED our Texas Springtime! I had to turn on Dr. Tony Evans’ message to get my mind off my Emily just to avoid smearing my makeup with tears!!
THEN, one of my Xanga friends posted about signing up her little boy for T-ball, and by the time I finished commenting on her post about how much I LOVED doing baseball with Nathanael, I was in tears again! Man, oh man – this has to stop!
Spring is coming, and something about Spring brings joy to my heart! “Newness of Life” – that must be it! Reminders all around of what Jesus does for every one of us who believe on Him! How good of Him to set those markers all around for us to see!
God bless your day!
