Hey everyone, Asha here. I hope you are doing okay—I mean, do you ever get that feeling of…being overwhelmed sometimes? That’s me now—although it’s not all bad.
I told you last week that Major Scott had a heart attack and had to spend four days in the hospital. He is doing okay now, recovering with rest and medications. He still cannot drive anywhere or go to work yet. His wife took off from school to take him to his Cardiologist appointment and after waiting nearly two hours was informed that he would not be coming in and he would have to reschedule for the next day. As Pooh would say, “Oh bother.”The other thing is that Major Scott’s dad was admitted to the hospital after he arrived back home in Tennessee. He has Shingles and a high fever. At least he made it back home safely.
Now, as America turns their attention from Hurricane Harvey to the massive Hurricane Irma, Major Scott and his family will hunker down like the rest of the Floridians in preparation for the worse but hoping for the best. Folks from south Florida are already evacuating north.
Texans are still recovering or trying to, from Hurricane Harvey and could face another one in its wake, Hurricane Katia in the Gulf of Mexico. Ahh, does it ever end. I am glad that I live in Tennessee but that’s rather selfish of me not to think of others and their plight. So, I have been praying in our prayer room—earnestly.
I found that the most comforting words for the weary—like me sometimes…hee hee, ha ha, are from the book of Psalms, my personal favorite. So, here’s a quote that I’ve meditated on and will share with y’all.
“Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them. Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord.” –Psalm 111:2; 112: 6, 7
Keep your heart steadfast Major Scott. The rest of y’all too—please.
Asha (One each)
