Some of you know that my dad has had some pretty serious health issues lately, the most recent being a quadruple bypass surgery a few months ago. He has recovered remarkably, by the grace of God. He met with a specialist today, expecting to have to schedule another major surgery, but his condition was better than expected, and they don't want to see him again for 6 months! What great news!
My relationship with my dad has been pretty rocky over the years, but today, our relationship is better than it has been for as long as I can remember. He has been so blessed in the gift of my step-mom; she has brought out a side of him that I have never seen before. I only wish he wouldn't met her sooner! God definitely knew what he was doing when he put them together.
"Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for always knowing what we need, when we need it, and for providing for us as you see fit. Thank you for loving us so much that you see the good in us, when we can't see it in ourselves, and thank you, Lord, for forgiving us for our sins. Lord, I love you and I praise you. In Jesus' name, Amen."
