Ryan’s Miracle Watch 9/30/16

We are grateful to our Lord who has given us another week with our son. We continue to pray, however, that God will heal him soon, so that the weeks and years to come will be filled with his singing and playing and all the things a healthy young man can do and accomplish. I often wonder what he’d be doing now if he were healthy. What would his occupation be? What kind of songs would he write? What beautiful girl would he be dating…or married to? Nah, not married. He’s too young. I wonder…

Lord, Please heal my boy this very moment. I miss him and want him healthy again so I can talk to him, and have him answer back…Amen

I hate it when I see some old person and then realize we went to high school together.

Ryan and I are hanging together tonight. He’s being the model citizen, patient, son and yes, model. He’s still that good-looking. I, on the other hand, am not…and am jealous.

Proverbs 16:31   A gray head is a crown of glory; It is found in the way of righteousness.

I’m sure glad I’ve got a lot of gray hair.

Isaiah 46:4   Even to your old age I will be the same, And even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; And I will bear you and I will deliver you.

I’m sure glad God is God!

Ryan’s day nurse surprised me and came in three hours early this morning, which allowed me to get a bit of sleep before I headed off to work. Bless her heart. I pray God gives her a special blessing.

So, Ryan slept the entire time I was in there; which is exactly what he should be doing. The bummer is, we didn’t get to party like I wanted to. Oh well…maybe next time.

“Happiness keeps you sweet.

Trials keep you strong.

Sorrows keep you human.

Failures keep you humble.

And faith keeps you going.”

From time to time a nurse will call in sick on the night shift. Today is one of those times. So, Ryan and I will be partying throughout the night. If any of y’all want to come join us, please feel free to pop in. Just make sure you bring some munchies. We’ll leave the light on for ya…

Lord, Please watch over all your children tonight. Amen

Numbers 6:24-26   “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”

Going in to watch Ryan now, so Janine can get some rest tonight. She’s gotta go into work early tomorrow. I really hate to take the joy of watching Ryan away from her…Uh, no I don’t! Ha ha.

He and I will either watch all the recordings of the shows I missed last week, or the Liar’s Club. You know. The presidential debate. This oughta be good…

May God Bless each and every one of you tonight and always!

None of us is immune to death. At one point in time or another, we all will succumb. Time is ticking. Tick Tock Tick Tock I urge you to make the most of the time you have left…

First things first, though…John 3:16   You must believe! And no, this is not too good to be true. It is as simple as that…

Rest in peace Mr. Palmer.

Lord, Please continue to look after my boys. Heal Ryan. Guide Jacob. And, should you grant to me another day, please help me make the most of it.

Psalm 143:8   Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.

Sorry to have missed posting yesterday. These sales meetings can be grueling. We got home late from dinner and I was totally exhausted, so I just crashed. But, it’s not about me…

Saw this prayer on FB today, and it’s similar to the prayers I pray for Ryan every day, as well as for others with whom I’ve become acquainted over the past several years…

Heavenly Father, If someone is sick at this moment, I pray Lord, kindly touch and heal them. Let them feel your joy and divine presence, and make them whole again. In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen

Thank you all for joining my family in praying this prayer for our son, as well as for others who need it.

Hmmm…those who need it…I suppose that’s included all of us at one point in time or another…

For today’s post, I thought I’d post the verse of the day, so I just typed in “Bible verse of the day” and it came up with this one…

Luke 9:24   For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.

So, I really want to be a loser…

While I’m gone, Janine’s trying to track down someone to fix Ryan’s bed. In the meantime, Ryan remains a mat on the floor; just lying there collecting dust. Someone needs to vacuum him soon…

Ah come on! Y’all know I’m just kidding.

I really miss my boy…not kidding.
