Praise God for cream of wheat!

Tom reports that Deb is better today.
A new med yesterday is helping with the nausea. Nellie fixed Deb cream of wheat for breakfast this morning, and it stayed down. First food to stay down in over a month.

Praise the Lord for the small things, especially cream of wheat.

Israel I would feed with the finest wheat, satisfy them with honey from the rock.
(Psalm 81:17)

Very often, I have been quite critical of those who deem themselves as "spiritual parents". The glory of watching your "child" hitting their first home run has to be balanced with cleaning up the dirty diapers and spit up.

Deb and Tom, you have been my spiritual Mom and Dad for more years than I can remember. I often look at a circumstance and wonder how you would handle it. I fail miserably when I realize I don't have what is necessary to reach my goal.

Now it's time for me to return the favor. Mom and Dad, I pray, but you also taught me to look for other action. What can I do? How can I help?

I'm not tough enough (like I know you are) to handle this. I want to ask God if He knows what He's doing (stupid question ... no wonder Peter is one of my heroes). None of that matters now. I'm coming to the party late, but I'm here now.
