Home

ERNIE is HOME, and we have so many reasons to smile. When things were headed relentlessly towards transplant territory I was nervous that my brother would not see his home again bc they recently sold their house and are closing soon. I went to work one day and never came home, and I prayed Ernie would be spared that grief. Turns out we have all been spared a LOT of grief and we are so glad for the respite. There have been many scenarios, though, in which my family has NOT been spared grief, but we are still able to give thanks in every circumstance knowing that even when fear and doubt assail we have an unwavering Advocate, and โ€œsurely He hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows…” The fact that we have known both kinds of outcomes and Godโ€™s faithfulness in everything made me confident before I knew how Ernie’s situation would turn out, that he’d be okay – we’d all be okay no matter what. Yes, of course, it was daunting, but we were open to and asking for healing at every level, and after all – home is not a place, it’s a feeling. But I am thrilled that the two intersect presently and Ernie will be home with his wife and children and Mom and Dad Bj tonight. The home health nurse will visit this evening. THANK YOU for standing with us in prayer, and rejoicing with us, too.
