A Humorous Mechanism

Somehow I did it again! I remember putting the laptown down last night before going to sleep, but it was on my lap when I woke up this morning!

I must have made a comment in the blog about the food here at WMH. I think maybe I referred to the chicken salad as being bland. I did not mean to insult anyone - in my experience, chicken salad is usually bland. The food here is good - especially when compared with some of the other hospitals in which I stayed. Praise God, I have not lost my appetite. Anyway, as a result of all of this, a tray was delivered to our room this morning featuring raspberry and blueberry scones, pumpkin spice cappuccino, and French Vanilla cappuccino. A very nice treat! Not bland at all.

To be honest, the food here is quite good, as is the quality of nursing care. I have been more than pleased with the professionalism and the lovingkindness demonstrated by each member of the staff.

I have to relate something humorous that is happening to me. Every time I start to sob/cry uncontrollably, God has given me a built-in brake mechanism. I get to a certain point of crying, and then I break into a yawn. And then I start laughing! Very strange.

I had trouble waking up. Very drousy. Most of this morning has been a blur. I was bathed. I've been medicated. My wife and I answered some e-mails and have spent some time talking about the logistics of going home.

We have had only one visitor today, and are enjoying the relative solitude. We continue to be awed by the fact that God meets our every need even before we can express it.

It is now 1:10 p. My wife ran to do some errands and pick up lunch - cheesesteak subs from the Honesdeli. Another treat to which I am looking forward!

I look forward to spending more time with my wife this afternoon. But I also miss my children.

Life is good. The Creator and Sustainer of Life is Greater. And greatly to be praised!

We have a daughter who teaches HS math in northern VA. She follows your blog as time allows. This week she learned that one of her 15-year old students was diagnosed with Ewings in the leg. Teaching in a public school, she has had to deal with some tough stuff, but this broke her heart. Thank you for your honesty and the testimony you and your family are to those who "read" you. God is able.We aren't left to work out these things on our own. - SVA

Even if I get what you said, my views are still so different. I guess being in so many symposiums, life discussions and Covenant marriage Seminars have nurtured this kind of thinking.
