It's a cool, beautiful morning here in SE KS. It's upper 50's/low 60's, sunny, and perfect for windows and screens open!
Today entails working outside, a run to the library, basic housekeeping, and prepping for Sunday meals and the whole family being home at some point. For a July day, it's not to be too hot, perfect for yard work!
We have yet to hear back on the journey concerning Kevin and the residential psychiatric facility, as it is still going through the channels. This has been left in God's hands, whatever He chooses, I shall do. This weekend he is visiting his dad, having quality daddy time.
I hope this weekend to get to go to church, as when Kevin is home it is getting to dangerous to take him for his aggression toward others, or passive aggression in refusing to get out of the vehicle. This has been going on since he spent 3 weeks straight with his dad, and of course they do not attend church and are rather hostile to Jesus and any worship. So in that sense we are near back where I started with him years ago, when he was much smaller and hitting and kicking and trying hard not to be in church. I remember well spending lots of time in the "quiet" or "sick" room with him, just outside the sanctuary and being able to see and hear the service, while tending to an agitated and upset Kevin. I miss going to worship, listening to the message, singing the hymns, and being around other people of like faith, even if it's just for a couple of hours. But, it is what I've heard in past messages, reading, singing, that I hold to and replay now in my head as we go day to day with Mr. Kevin and the issues he's been having.
Thank you to all who have kept our family in prayer! We so greatly appreciate your kind thoughts and words as we walk along where the Lord would have us go. He never said the road would be easy, but that He'd be with us along the way!
Have a wonderful weekend, my friends, and have a blessed day at the House of the Lord!
