Let him who thinks he stands, take heed lest he fall.
Following Google map directions, I arrived at the Town Center, but after half an hour of searching, even going into Christian-owned Hobby Lobby to ask for walking directions. How blessed I was to see their sign that they are closed on Sundays in order that their employees might enjoy family and worship together!! After searching every nook and cranny of the center, I finally gave up and drove back home. You know, of course, that since I prepaid, and did drive to the location, I'll make sure to note that on my business expenditure and miles traveled categories for taxes next year!
At home again, Steve went with the caregiver to get a haircut, and I went upstairs to nap while they were gone. Even though the extreme heat had me worn out, that's not what had me in a pensive mood. I think that I am still processing my decision on Steve's care. Even though our quiet evening included total care for him from the dinner table to bed, we did sit and hug on the couch as we like to do.
What will it be like to be alone in the house on evenings when I don't work? How on earth will Jada react to her beloved master's disappearance? Shall I rent out two of the bedrooms, or have UCR foreign students here again? And since Steve is the only client our caregivers have, that's a lot of people out of work!
I know the Lord will help me every step of the way, and has my wonderful final years laid out for me. We who are born again can all trust this promise from Jesus Himself, John 14:2-3:
Come, Lord Jesus!
