In preparing for my husband’s surgery we have been constantly on the go … to see the surgeons, the cardiologist, the orthopedic center, the scans, x-rays, blood work, and pre-hospital admissions work-up.  I haven’t had time to post each day but wanted to take time today as the gifts that we are to find are three gifts found in community.

1. I thank God for neighbors who have been so supportive – putting themselves out to meet our need – be it transportation – waiting with us through tests – or providing food. For dear neighbors, we thank you God!

2. Internet friends – What thoughtful, caring folks are out there. I love you and thank you for all the prayers, emails and contacts. May God bless each of you!

3. Family – It is times like these we really need and appreciate family, those from the church family and our children, grands and siblings.

Thank you Father, for these gifts found in community.
