So we are coming out of work and F says to me, that’s not how to get to gandma’s house. I said, oh, do you want to go to gandma’s house… realizing she would be asleep in about 30 seconds anyway… and it was almost time for J to get home from work. So we head for Belinda’s house. (and of course I was right, she was asleep before I turned the corner).
I bring F in the house put her in bed and then hollar for Belinda’s son Don, who is home. A few minutes later he comes up the stairs to tell me he just got word that his grandpa died today. Of course my first thought is how Belinda is in England… and then where is Jeani and we are NOT going to tell her when she is driving. I hang out and wait for J to get home… and in the mean time, I go into my prayer request mode. I called the church to get them praying, and then I called Belinda’s little sister, because I knew she wouldn’t have her sister to talk to right then and I wanted to make sure she was ok. Jeani got home from work and her brother, D, breaks the news and as I knew she would, she melted down. She did get to talk to B, who still doesn’t know what she is going to do. It is 9:30 over there… so it is about bedtime, but I figure she won’t be sleeping real soon.
Please keep them in your prayers, the whole family. Especially Belinda as she tries to decide to come home early or stay or what she needs to do for her and her family. Thanks.
God does truly amaze me. If I hadn’t listened to F today, I wouldn’t have been here for Jeani or D or any of this. He just seems to put us where we need to be when we need to be… providing we listen!!!
