Hospital Visit #15, West Texas Weekend and Hanging On to God

Had a great hike with Barrett- Stephen's son in Alpine.
The past week has been an adventure. I honestly do not know how people live life without the Lord. I am thankful for the help of Hospice  but it has been a lot of work to get things all worked out. 
Beauty in the desert of life
This past weekend, I joined Stephen in Alpine Texas as he has a hunting business in the area. I loved riding around with him and enjoying the scenery.  I couldn't help reflect on how great God's love is for us.

Me and my cowboy- fun West Texas Weekend

 As I returned to Kerrville Sunday, I received a call from my father. He said he was not feeling well and needed to go to the emergency room. Once again, I headed for Peterson Regional Medical Center. This is visit #15 since Joe has been gone.  I remind myself that this is a season. It is a long one, like a marathon...It may not seem like much to you, but each time it is a withdrawal from my bank. The hours are long and I feel like I have two handicapped children. It is a juggling act with mom being on Hospice. She is struggling. And then you take dad out of the mix and needing care and you have a whole new set of problems. I don't now how people live without God. I couldn't do it. I need Him more each day. I know this is only a season and I am determined to finish it strong. I depend on God to help me more each day. When I am weak, He is strong. Yea God!
