(Sorry for the confusion of having accidentally published this post before it was finished!)
Nora’s heart rate has fluctuated today. At its highest it was 201 (she was upset) and then down to 154 when she was sleeping. We’re trying to remain calm and patient as we pray for the lasix to work. We have been in contact with our cardiologist throughout the day. So far this is still just “wait and see”. Hoping and praying her little heart will settle down by tomorrow when we call with another report.
Last night as I was about to call it a night, I received an email from my cousin. Attached to the email was a photograph of a painting by our grandmother who passed away in December of 2010. It is reportedly one of her last paintings and was done in 1985.
There would have been no way for her to know how very significant those 3 varied brush strokes in the upper right of the composition would prove to be 28 years later to her then 12-year-old granddaughter. God is spaceless and timeless, knowing that someday I would get this blessed message from someone forever dear to me, “God is with you! Don’t worry!”
But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.
(2 Peter 3:8 NLT)
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
