A Day

Yesterday really tested me. First I went shopping for the new grandson. Ryan is sure a cutie. I didn't want to spend over a certain amount so I took my "cards" out of my wallet and only brought with me the cash I could spend. I was so surprised on how I felt removing the "cards". I had such an emptiness about me. I learned something about myself I didn't like after talking with a friend at choir practice. God wanted me to go though this so I understood how deep the roots of my spending went. I was thinking I have moved past my need for financial security or good feeling that comes with shopping. I now know God and I have more work to do. I will have to remove the "cards" more often. I must depend totally on God for the good feeling and security.

The next part of the day seemed worst but may not be. My dad had his second heart attack in 4 days. He is in the hospital now. They are taking him off all his medicine and introducing all new medicine. Dad is not a believer. My pastor offered to visit Dad. I will be asking Dad today if that would be OK. Hubby thinks if Dad meets Pastor Tim he will really like him.
When I talked to Dad yesterday he was worried about Mom and wants me to check on her several times a day. I promised him I would. So this morning it is off to mom's till she goes to the hospital.

I will pray for your Dad to be open to a visit from your pastor. I hope that he gets better soon.

Praise he Lord for your Dad agreeing to see Pastor Tim.
I'll continue to pray for your Dad and PT. Let us know when they are to meet.

I will be praying for your Dad's health and salvation. If you give me his name I will put him on the salvation list on our church prayer sheet.You will know that at least on Wednesday night everyone at our little church is praying for him.

I understand about the financial security. God is dealing with me on this--it is an on going lesson.

Thanks for coming by. Almost all back to normal.

Hi Sandi,
First, let me thank you for your prayers for my Dad. God is good. He is already home from the hospital. They couldn't find anything wrong. We are so thankful.
I'm sorry to hear about your Dad. I will be praying for him - for his health and for his salvation. Perhaps now is just the right time for him to receive the good news.
Thank you so much again.
