Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.1 Peter 4:8-10
Here is a short update from Orlando. Rebekah eventually made it – negotiating torrential rains and thunderstorms along the way – in time to be on hand when Naomi was discharged from the hospital.
A household with three young children is a zoo at the best of times! But with Naomi in recovery mode plus having to follow post-surgery guidelines there is a lot that needs to go smoothly, so I’m very glad Rebekah is on hand.
It helps of course that David and Beks are such great siblings and Craig is such an amazing husband. Then Geoffrey, just a few days away from two and a half, is a force of nature!
We are all impressed with how Naomi is bouncing back after surgery (she posted this photo before she left the hospital). But there are still questions to be answered and tests to be had so at the moment it’s very much “one day at a time.”
Rebekah, meanwhile, gets to do lots of laundry and cooking and cleaning and listening and – most importantly – grand-parenting.
Rebekah’s series of “hide and go seek” photos with Geoffrey (at the foot of this post) is priceless.
Love and Prayer:
And, yes, I wish I could have been with Rebekah. But as we all know, things in the care department are complicated right now.
I really do appreciate the words from First Peter: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
Can I get an “Amen”? – DEREK
Amen, most certainly, brother.
