In the morning when I rise, give me Jesus. @grittyg @crystalstine #creativebasics day20Just about a month ago, I wrote on this topic

It included the words to the song In the Morning When I Rise…

And coincidentally was set to be posted the morning Ron had his stroke.

Wow! A lot has changed since then.


I have been surrounded by many loving hands

Seen the touch of GOD in many tender ways

Waited, waited and waited…

For results of tests, to see what the outcome of the stroke will be…


That wait isn’t over yet. We won’t really know for a year.

After 6 months, we’ll have a good idea.

Now, we’re in the process of waiting for his brain to heal as well as retraining it too!

Getting into a routine, finding a new normal, and

Continuing therapies are all part of the plan.                          STOP


And as we wait, I’m learning to trust Jesus in new ways.

As the song says, In the morning when I rise, give me Jesus.

When life gets complicated like it has, the simple things seem most important.

Give me Jesus.


I remember thinking when I first wrote the article,

That I don’t simply want Jesus often enough.

That is changing.
