Bathroom for Fall and amazing Answered Prayer!

Hello everyone! Wow what a few days we have had. We had a terrible call to rush to the hospital for my wonderful father in law. Seemed his kidneys had failed and his arteries to his heart were closed off and everything that could start failing was failing. So I drove 9 hours to my husband and the rest of the family...we flew our kids to where my hubby was.....home early from college. AND THEN WE PRAYED!
Wow, we prayed that God would intervene, that He would touch my father in law and heal him through the doctor's hands. The doctors told us there was no hope and that he probably wouldn't make it through the angio-procedure. But he came through it and the doctors and nurses were shocked how well he looked, felt and acted. They said he would never leave the hospital, or live over night.....he is doing great now. The doctors just shook their heads and said they were surprised he was still alive.
There were 30 of us there praying....and God answered our prayers remarkably. Wow. I'm still in shock.
I already had this post ready for today but wanted to share this amazing news. Thank you God for once again navigating us through this rough time!

Next Monday be sure to join in on this party. Christmas Vintage decorations. She has a wonderful blog and already there are wonderful posts about vintage decorating for Christmas. If you'd like to join in on the fun, please visit her blog!

We are enjoying a sweet season of time with our precious loved ones this week. Very appreciative of our time together....this side of heaven.
"He sent His word and healed them." Psalm 107:20

Blessed be God. This Thanksgiving will have an even stronger meaning for you and your family.

What wonderful Thanksgiving decorations. I had forgotten all about the nut with the squirel on top! I made one in ceramics back in the 80s and gave it away years ago!
