God has taught me a great lesson in the last few months. My dad and his wife live in the Philippines. First, Dad gets put in the hospital for a week or more. I had to keep telling myself that we Americans aren't the only ones who can practice medicine. LOL! Then, I hear on the news that the Philippines is flooded. They get word to me that they are ok. Then he tells me a super typhoon with winds over 200 mph is heading their way. OH MY WORD! Not just a typhoon, which is bad enough, but a SUPER typhoon. Dad sent a text and told me they are ok, just getting a lot of rain from the storm, but that was it. Thank God.
My lesson? Trust God. I couldn't be over there when Dad was in the hospital. I could not stand not being able to know they were ok instantly. But, God let me know He is the One in control of life itself and even a typhoon. As much as I hated not being able to be there, God is the One they needed there in each situation. I could not have made him better in the hospital and I certainly could not have calmed a typhoon! Thank You Lord for working in me. And most of all, thank You for being the one in control.

That is what I am trying to do. Having your husband home can mix things up to say the least. My normal completely became obsolete. I have missed my computer time, since my hubby felt that time should be devoted to him. So it was. It's been great spending time with him, but it will be over on Wednesday. He will be back to work! I am praising God for it because the doctor said he could not believe the difference in his foot from just a few weeks ago. Only God can make that kind of difference. Now, we will be settling back into our "normal" routines. It is welcomed with open arms. Even Rob is looking forward to going back to work! LOL! I will be posting more often now. Woo Hoo! LOL!
