Shortly after waking this morning, a song Billy and I used to sing (but no one sings it like our friends, Henry & Hazel Slaughter) came to mind. "We've Come This Far By Faith."
I fixed a cup of coffee, grabbed my Bible and devotional when I realized 2 years ago today Billy was diagnosed with Lewey Body Dementia. Many of you have traveled this journey with us and I could never thank you enough for all your prayers, financial support, emails, phone calls and cards of encouragement for our family. You've carried me through some dark and difficult days. YES, we've come this far by faith!
In the past two years I've seen Billy's countenance change from fear, frustration and irritation to one that is calm, comfortable and peaceful. God answered my prayer for Billy's speech that never got corrupt or dis honoring. He has reconfirmed to me that He makes His presence known to Billy for He said, "I'll never leave you nor forsake you." He said NEVER....no conditions attached...that works for me!!
For those of you who will continue the journey with us, our family is forever grateful!
"YES, I remember all the good things God has done, things that seemed impossible, I'll praise Him for the victories He has won."
Under His wings
