238 – The Wonderful and Wondrous Christian Life
December 6, 1986
On Monday we had a neat experience of seeing God work.
I suspected I had a bladder infection. Dan gave permission to go to the doctor. (The question is always—do we have the cash to cover it?)
Josie, our neighbor, needed to get to Avon to pick up her car in the shop.
I tried the doctor’s office for 20-25 minutes, praying for God to supply a same-day appointment.
Also praying for a ride to work out.
Got an 11am appointment.
The idea came to borrow Sue Skiff’s car. She was working at ShurFine, the grocery store down the street.
In her rental car, Josie took us to ShurFine (the boys and I got ready miraculously quickly and efficiently, packing color book and crayons and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and apples). They also had a big toast and jelly snack while I was bustling around.
We brought Josie’s rental car back to our yard after we picked up Sue’s car.
Then we went to Avon.
Dropped Josie off at the car place.
Drove to Honeyoe Falls.
Got to the docs at 3 minutes to 11.
Barely room to sit in the waiting room.
We were all in good spirits and they were model kids. Praise YOU, Lord!
Read a story, all of them crowded around me.
I left the kids to give a urine sample. I was then called in.
The boys colored outside my door (end of the hall, in no one’s way).
I had to change to a gown for the exam.
Tim took Danny to the restroom. They had to go down to the doctor’s bathroom in the basement because a patient had passed out in front of the restroom on our floor.
We went to the front desk to pay. Timmy pointed out Tracey Belcastro, who needed love and prayer!! Praise God.
To the pharmacy.
Back to ShurFine to get Sue. She was off at 1 and we got there at 5 minutes till!!
Had time to get more hot dogs for dinner and $5 to give her for gas, which blessed her.
We blessed each other.
Josie and I blessed each other.
Tracey and I blessed each other.
The boys and I blessed each other.
PRAISE AND GLORY TO YOU, LORD!
This is just how I wrote it in my journal. I was 41 years old, full of simple faith in Jesus. And loving living that way.
