A Sweet Morning Routine
Morning routines are interesting and important. I have told you before that my dad prays early every morning and he prays aloud.
On my recent trip to see my dad, (six weeks after his open heart surgery,) I got the usual treat. It was a little later than usual, say 7 AM, as he is still recovering. :-)
Dave and I were downstairs and he was in the living room. Usually i can just hear the hum of his voice, but occasionally a word or two sticks out.
I heard a few words and started laughing. I turned to Dave and said, "Did dad just pray for Fox New analysts Brit Hume and Charles Krauthammer? "YES!"
Is he the most adorable man or what?
A big thank you to all of you who prayed and continue to pray for my dad, Glenn, in his recent surgery to replace an aortic valve. He is very thin, but doing fantastic. Just yesterday he saw his cardiologist and received a clean bill of health. In dad's happy words . . . "he has given me my life back."
While we were home, I had the chance to read dad the post I had written about him and all of your comments. He was deeply touched by your prayers.
My dad has a great sense of humor. He told me of something he had recently done to help a friend. To my, "you are always so thoughtful, dad," he said, "Well, Glenny, I had open heart surgery, not a heart transplant." Yup, we love that heart of yours dad. Glad you got to keep it.
What is your favorite morning routine?
