"You will grieve, but your grief will suddenly turn to wonderful joy." John 16:20
Oh friends, today is a day of wonderful joy. Dad is coming home after 8 months in the hospital. We pick him up this morning at 10AM and my sister is hosting a big turkey dinner tonight in celebration. I know I'll have many more pictures to share later today, but for now, I'll share our journey to bringing Daddy home. Thank you for standing by my side and praying me through countless days. Wish you could all join us tonight as we praise the Lord for all He has done. To God be the glory!
(I wish I knew how to put a song of my choice along with the pictures. I have provided a link to the song I wanted to accompany the slide show, but I'm afraid you'll have to listen to it separately. Sorry. Computer savvy I'm not.)

Does this look familiar? My friend Carol decorated my garage door in a similar way when I returned from "She Speaks" last summer.

Daniel, Dad, Mom....me.
Me, Dad, Japhia. It was soooo windy out!!!
Sharon checking out all of Dad's meds.
Preparing to cut off Dad's hospital bracelet that he has worn for 8 months. He looks nervous. Do you see the size of those scissors?
1...2...3...cut!!! As my sister Japhia said, Dad's identity was not in his hospital bracelet, but in the faithfulness of God.
Welcome Home Pa!! (Do you see the two faces peeking through the doors? Two grandsons!)
Smiles everywhere! Together again at last. We celebrated with a big turkey dinner. A belated Thanksgiving.
Ah....I can still feel that hug. Welcome home Dad...welcome home.
