It Is Well With My Soul... finally

The rain is steadily coming down outside my window, my fall pumpkin candles are burning, and Pachelbel's "Canon in D" is softly playing.

After a month of stress and turmoil, my heart is resting in the peace and calm of this moment. Thank You God for restoring my soul.

Exceedingly, Abundantly Above What We Could Ask

My Dad is fine.

He is better than fine, really, he is amazing. That is the word all the doctors and nurses use when describing him, and we love hearing it!

His surgery was Saturday morning, and they were able to do the triple bypass and correct all the problems, so his heart is as good as new. He was awake and off the ventilator within an hour and a half of the surgery, and by mid afternoon was feeding himself ice chips and talking to us.

He came home yesterday morning (yes- less than 72 hours after open heart surgery!), praise God, and is going to recuperate at our home for a week or so.

I have so much more to say, but life has to get back to some kind of normal and so I am off to work today.

God is SO good and worked so many things for good in this situation, we cannot praise Him enough!
