We have had a lot of those turns too!
My daughter, 10 got diagnosed with Madelung’s deformity of her radius bone. A lot of bad stuff with that!
Right now I am really missing my Dad, who lived with us & very sadly, died in June from an 8 month battle with esophageal cancer with mets to liver and both lungs-death is never pretty!!!..our favorite dog ran under the side of our van as we raced to the hopsital so we detoured to the vet and the children and I watched blood pouring out of her as the vet assts took her out-she died. My brother-in-law’s dad died, our pastor’s dad died, my friend’s dad died and all this was the same month-June. Then, my other brother in law had to get an emergency quadruple bypass, my Mom is with us and suffering greatly, I have a crazy sister, who is abusive emotionally to her children and is destroying her life, and recently my husband got laid off indefinitely and my brother’s wife left him and their three young children because she is “tired” of being a wife and mother.
What a summer!
Somehow, I know that God is “on it” and He is going to handle things from His end as long as we do what we know we should: Seek ye’ first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added."
Where things look so bleak, we have managed to have a great marriage and feel confident that God will have a new position come to my husband and it will be the best for us. We are even looking at selling our beloved home if we have to but really, home is where one’s family is!
God can get us through these times but we have to look ahead in confidence and trust, like a child would when the parent says, “Honey, come with me.” The child just grabs on and walks, trusting that Dad will make it better.
Prayers for your situation!!!
