I will give to the LORD the thanks due to his righteousness,
and I will sing praise to the name of the LORD, the Most High.
(Psalm 7:17 ESV)
I had shared that my husband had been very sick for a very long time. In April he finally went to see the doctor. The picture to your left is a month after he got out of the hospital; very skinny…He lost over 50lbs in about a month. It was very sad to see him sick like this. He had no energy left; it was hard for my beloved to stop what he loved to do – photography.
Although he has still ways to go to get his energy back, we are now back to what we both like to do: photography. Sure it hot right now, but we go out for little bit each weekend. Not only is it good for him to walk a little each day, but it makes him happy to photograph again.
I have to say that without the Lord’s Word of encouragement during this time, I would have not held up as good as I did. It was so disheartening to see my husband so exhausted, skinny. I was afraid to loose him. But I knew that God still has plans for him, so I trusted the Lord to get us through this.
I am also very thankful that my husband found his sense of humor again. This past weekend I realized how much I had missed it. It is so great to laugh again – laugh out loud and tears of joy running down my face!
Lord, thank You for Your love, grace and mercy. Without Your strength and Word I would have not made it through the past months on the road to recovery. I am thankful that You have given us another chance. A chance to see the love my husband and I have for each other. I continue to trust in Your guidance. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen
