My mother and father moved into a retirement community when Dad could no longer provide all the necessary care for Mom’s dementia, diabetes, digestive problems and spinal stenosis that makes her wheel-chair bound. That huge adjustment and expense could be eased if Dad’s long-term care insurance could be approved to pay the in-home care for Mom. On the day the insurance company sent a RN to do the physical check of my mom the nurse found her vitals to be concerning and recommended mom be taken to the hospital ER. An endoscopy and colonoscopy was performed among other tests and found cancer in the right side of Mom’s colon. Prayer requests went out and were answered. Mom’s colon surgery was successful and her related physical therapy has allowed her to walk better than she had in 12 years!

At the apartments where I work a tenant came to the office very angry about noisy neighbor kids often unsupervised by their parents and how many times he has complained without seeing anything done by the management.  His apartment is next the only playground on the property and kids also live near him.  All I could do is thank him for his information on the noisy neighbors and insure management was investigating.  On my drive home that night I asked God for him to have a peaceful diversion from the problem.  I prayed, Lord give this person some serenity and a break from his frustration; like Your Holy Spirit gives me when I’m walking my dogs in the country.

A few weeks later I saw the guy in the parking lot talking happily to others so I went up and ask how it was going.  He said, “Hey, I had a God-thing happen to me.  I was walking my dog in the park [a few miles away from our apartments] when I saw a lady with a dog like mine.  I went up to her and realized it was a friend from High School I hadn’t seen in years.  We had a great conversation . . .”  He went on to say, that only God could have made that chance meeting occur and that they both have the same breed of dogs!
