Today is a Wonderful Day.

I am so thrilled this morning to be able to tell everyone that my dad is being released from the geriatric psychiatric ward at the hospital and being taken back to the nursing home to continue getting stronger and gain weight. He has done a 180 degree turn in his health and I praise God for every bit of it.
I am continuing to pray that he gets strong enough to get the aortic valve replacement and that he would have TOTAL healing of his mind and come back to a life better than he and my mom had before. God is able. I think we are living in the lasts days and the Lord has used my dad several years in the ministry to witness and pray for people and I just do not feel his work on earth is done yet. My parents illness has reminded me of just how good our God is and how having faith in Him and relinquishing our control over to Him can put our fears to rest.
