Sandra comes home tomorrow

on December 1, 2011

Sandra will be able to come home some time tomorrow. I moved yesterday from my sister Margot’s house to Sandra’s house and I have the kids with me. Cindy will still spend tonight with Sandra at hospital then start staying here so she can nurse her back to health. Cindy, brother Tom and I will all be here to help Sandra with the kids and the house until she is able.

The next couple of days will be very difficult for all of us. Saying goodbye to Glen will be one of the hardest things any of us has ever had to do. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

    It is absolutely wonderful that Sandy can come home. I empathize with your struggle over the coming weekend and Glen’s funeral. It is hard to even imagine your pain and sense of loss. Char and I will hold you guys, and especially Sandy, in our hearts and thoughts this weekend. Also, we are available to you if you need anything done up here.

    I saw this devotion from Bryant Wright this morning and thought it was perfect for Sandra’s coming home.

    “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?” – Romans 8:31

    I have always been inspired by people who faced great challenges and setbacks in their lives – who fought hard and achieved amazing comebacks. There is along list of people who have done this, both real, fiction, and secular, as well as biblical; from centuries past, as well as recent heroes.

    I have tremendous news for you. These comebacks are not just for people you read about in the history books or the latest edition of Newsweek. This very day, God is in the business of turning your setbacks into comebacks! Note what Paul wrote to the Christians being persecuted: “… we are being put to death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.” Realize that God doesn’t say, “Well, I’ll arrange it where you can just squeak by!” Neither does He say, “I’ll arrange it where you can just barely endure.”

    No! He doesn’t say any of that. What He DOES say is: “In ALL these things, we overwhelmingly conquer!” We don’t just conquer, we overwhelmingly conquer, through the power of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And it is this amazing power – the power of the Creator of the universe – that will help you pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and turn your setback into an overwhelming victory. May that victory be triumphed for the glory of God!
