His Mercies Are New Every Morning - Jack Gets To Go Home!
This picture doesn't do it justice, and it doesn't show it all. God gave us a HUGE and INTENSE double rainbow this afternoon. That's our house in the middle (wanna buy it?! lol). I stood outside in my stocking feet in the rain with a wash cloth over my lens barrel to protect it from the water! Even my wide angle couldn't get the second beautiful bow, but what a delight.
Jack will be discharged from the hospital tomorrow morning and they will be heading home! Hurray! Please pray for their journey and transition home. They will need the next few days to settle and get used to a new routine, medical care and still working out the kinks in pain control.
Please refrain from telephoning these first few days. We hope you will understand.
It's not that they don't want to hear from you at all and please know that they do APPRECIATE all of you, but they are exhausted from everything and need some time to learn all the medical necessities and get into the new routine and rest. You can imagine that neither of them (Ruth has been mostly sleeping at the hospital in a chair) have gotten much rest in the hospital! It will feel good to be in their own bed.
I will keep updating as there is new news. PLEASE continue to pray. This is a long journey. Thank you so much!
