God's timeline

Dad had two seizures last night within about 20 minutes of each other. Mom went to check on dad and noticed that his eyes were open but he was not responding. He started to come out of the first seizure but then had another one shortly after that. Mom did really well and called the hospice nurse which is the protocol that she is supposed to follow. Mom said it was easier this time because she knew what was happening and that this is to be expected. I was very proud of her.

I was talking with my dad just the other day and I said how hard this process was. He agreed but said we need to trust God's time line so that is what we continue to do.

James needed to be back in Dallas but I am remaining here in N.J. with the kids until mid-November. I am gaining a new admiration for single parents but am grateful to be near my family to support them.

Your father's faith and words of truth and life have been a blessing to me. His witness to his confident hope have gone far and wide through your blog.

Thank you for sharing his life,

Michael in Michigan
