Excuse Me Sir, I Was Needing That
My dad's health isn't the best in the world. He had a heart attack about 3 years ago, and every one knows a heart attack screws everything up. He's got spinal stenosis, and has random seizure type things every once in a while. The reason he has the seizures is because a nerve in his brain was disrupted when he had the heart attack, and the nerve is trying to get adjusted to a new route. The adjustments make him freeze up, and sometimes shake like crazy and groan like he's in serious pain, which most of the time he is. He'll snap out of it after about 15 minutes and be completely unaware of his surroundings. He'll then fall asleep from exhaustion, and stay asleep for hours. I saw him have a seizure once and I thought he was dying. It was one of the most horrifying things I've ever seen.
My dad applied for disability about 4 years ago, and he never heard anything from S.S until this past December, I think. He went to a hearing in February, and we were on edge for the results until today when he got a letter from S.S. He and I both have prayed for his disability for a long time, because we really do need it. Our financial situation isn't good at all. He read the letter, and walked into my room slowly. I got really discouraged and hugged him, then he said that he had been accepted. Just one more big way the Lord has blessed me and my family.
My uncle was released from prison last Monday after 9 years. I have been worried about what it will be like for him outside of the prison, and if he'll get along alright physically, financially, mentally, and emotionally. He hasn't had a break down or anything yet, and he's been acting much more calm than I expected. He told me he thinks the full force of everything going on hasn't hit him yet, and he's scared of what will happen when it does. I prayed hard for him last night, and asked God to provide for my uncle and keep him safe. My mom called around 4:40 and informed me my uncle has a job now. Luck? I think not.
