Listening to every heart
Thanksgiving, this year, my brother's birthday, and I have much to be thankful for. He is back out of ICU, and they are now talking Rehab for some two to three weeks, and if all goes according to plan, he will be home soon enough.
Home. Where his new grandchild is waiting for him, his daughter and sons to once again lean on his advice and love.
The little miracles are all around us. The first doctor that told his family some weeks ago, "it doesn't look good, he won't make it to tomorrow," talked to him the other day, and was told by my brother, "they didn't believe you, and believed otherwise. You're off the team now, doc."
I told my brother, who knew of your prayers for him, that sometimes we have to pray for more than the person involved...we have to pray for those who surround our loves, pray that they are guided in skill, and thought.
He is going to share that with the doctor, because he knows the doc will come back...
I want to thank all of you for your prayers these last few long weeks. Not only for my brother, but for those who we have seen in Announcements as well. So many people are struggling in their lives right now. We can only pray at times that their last days will be easy, and comfortable, because we cannot forestall death. Sometimes, death can be a miracle, as well. Because it teaches us that we can continue living for others, even in the face of our loss.
I'm rambling...this was meant simply to be a thank you to all who have voiced your love, concern, have given of yourself in prayer, and notes.
You are what makes Passions a home.
