Update

You would think only so much can go wrong
Calamity only strikes once
And you assume that this one has suffered her share
Life will be kinder from here ...

How do we comprehend peace within pain
Our joy at a good man's wake
Walk a mile with a woman whose body is torn
With illness but she marches on

Sometimes the sun stays hidden for years
Sometimes the sky rains night after night
When will it clear?

But our hope endures the worst of conditions
It's more than our optimism
Let the earth quake
Our hope is unchanged

Emanuel, God is with us
El Shaddai, all sufficient ...


We never walk alone
This is our hope

Our hope endures, the worst of conditions
It's more than our optimism
let the earth quake
let the earth quake
let the earth quake
Our hope is unchanged


- Our Hope Endures, Natalie Grant

Mom has been throwing up since she returned to the nursing home. As the risk of dehydration is higher at her age, she is headed back to the hospital tonight.

God is still in charge.

Sorry. Messed that up a lot. I am sorry your mother is having so much trouble. Dehydration can indeed be bad for the elderly.

I'm so sorry. I hope it is something that is easily taken care of.
