Dad doesn’t do hospitals, but still it’s never too late for a song.
Hopefully, today is the day Dad leaves the hospital to begin rehab. Darlene has done so much of the research and legwork as Melinda and I have been trying to get dad to stick with the program and schedule.
In his mind, Dad’s got things he needs to do:
- Set up a basketball goal at the house for the grandkids.
- Help me start a church.
- Start a revival.
- Encourage me to sing a solo. (One of his more phantasmagorical
- Audition the sitters for a singing group.
- And, of course, get out of the jail and find Lillie.
But if there is someone there in the room, he can always sing.
Dad will be moving to Regency House today and hopefully Mom will join him there by the weekend. Please pray that he will understand and cooperate in this transition. If you know dad, you understand. He’s a maverick. Nobody EVER succeeded in getting him back in a bed.
Our prayers are also with all the victims of Harvey. I can’t even imagine the stress of the elderly and their caregivers in the midst of such a horrible, epic flood.
In the midst of the floods, give our brothers and sisters the reminder that Your grace is enough. You won’t leave us alone. There is no adversity, struggle, unknown territory, or illness that leaves us walking alone.
