Another New Change

Dad is now at Oceans Behavioral Hospital in Alexandria. The Regency House suggested it and we agreed because Dad was becoming unmanageable. He swings from the revival days to childhood to present. He doesn’t comprehend that the people trying to help him aren’t trying to hurt him. He switches channels of time, space and emotion with the ease of a dancer but not necessarily with the grace. We are hoping to get him the care that he needs for probably the next two weeks. We’ll be able to visit him on Wednesdays and Saturdays. It’s a lockdown facility but just a temporary fix.

I believe this will also be helpful for Mom. We are all so exhausted and without any answers and no miracle cures. Please pray that God will pour out His grace on Dad and Mom.

“He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.
When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.”
His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.

  1. Continuing to love and pray for each of you! Love you so much. Hope this will give light to what is happening in him. I also find myself looking for the “treasures of darkness in secret places . (Isa.)
