Life Course

He looks mad, but he's actually just making a face, and not a smiley one, because that would be so not cool. His check up on Friday went well. A few days before the appointment his glasses snapped in half and we had to order new ones. They put him in some temporary frames until the new ones come in, but were gracious to bend over backwards to be sure he left in lenses. We were pleased that his eyes were stable at his appointment and there was no need to cancel the order mid-stream to change the prescription of the lenses in the new glasses. He'll go back in three months for another check-up because the life of the last steroid injection he had is expiring and it is suspected that trouble is around the bend.

The evening before his appointment my mother-in-law passed away. We went back and forth as to whether or not I would take Riley to the appointment or go with my husband to sit by his side as he made final arrangements with his sister. I needed to be two people at once. We decided on keeping the appointment which in hindsight was the right decision. I still wanted to be in both places, but I was able to be with Barry again in the evening and he was able to take care of some technical things that I could not have helped him to accomplish.

It has been a sad time, but he did a beautiful job speaking at her funeral in her honor.

We just never know what each week holds. 

"A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps." Proverbs 16:9.

God is good, all the time!

  1. I'm glad you made that decision and have peace about it, especially in hindsight. Praying for you all.


My small town friends have this to say...
