God's Timing Thursday, 9/10/6 PM

Gail had her best day this week. Her feet felt warm to the touch for the first time in many weeks. Her color is better. We seem to have a better handle on pain control which is good. She did not venture beyond the commode by her bed but she was up several times to go to the bathroom there. She ate some of the dinner that the Winds brought and did not need much pain meds beyond the patch she has.

As I write she is sleeping because her afternoon was busy. Hospice from St. Joesph's Hospital came and several friends came for short visits and to pray. All in all it was an exhausting day so she is now resting. We still have hope and we still believe in God's healing grace. In God's timing it is never too late.

She still really needs and wants foot rubs and as we or friends do that for her she is so thankful.

It struck me today as 3 week old Jude sat sleeping in his seat in the den and Gail lay on her bed in the living room and in between were young and old how awesome is God's plan, how mysterious are his ways and how loving a God he is.
