Why I Count it all JOY Wednesday-My Dad

Today, my Dad is still with us, but he is suffering so much, and crying out "Help!".

It hurts to see him hurt and not be able to help him much.

I count it all JOY that my Dad has a relationship with Jesus Christ!

I count it all JOY that even though a lot of what my Dad says these days does not make sense, he still talks about the importance of relationships with family and friends.

I count it all JOY that my Dad has been surrounded by people who love him.

I count it all JOY that I am blessed by such great co-workers who encourage me to be with my Dad during this time.

ReJOYce in the Lord ALWAYS. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything,
by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: 6-7

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12
