Parenthesis in Life

It's been awhile since I've posted anything, due to some other issues, but now something new has arisen. Last week, my father suffered a stroke and was hospitalized. He was released yesterday, but will need speech therapy 5 times a week and he and my mom will need additional assistance. I've been staying with Mom while he was hospitalized and will be doing some of the "taxi" work to get him to therapy.
We are hoping to be able to get them into an assisted living facility within a couple of weeks.
All in all, it's been a major curve in the road here, and so blogging will probably be on hold for while. I'd appreciate your prayers for my family during these next days and week.

To get to know my parents a bit better, go here.

you are in my prayers as well as your parents. transitions are so very difficult and emotional. May God's grace cover all your needs and bring you the comfort and energy you need to deal with the tasks before you. selahV

Ditto what Selah said. I know the difficulties you are experiencing right now and I pray God's hand of guidance, comfort, and strength be upon you.

Sincere blessings in our Lord,
Tony

Dear selahv and tony--
Thank you so much for your prayers and concern. God has truly used both of you to encourage me in the past. I'll get back to your blogs when I have more time and a clearer head. Right now, I'm looking forward to sleeping in my own bed for the first time in four nights :)
