Sorry I haven't posted in a while but we've had our lives flipped upside down recently. My father in law, Jim, has had a stroke and is in need of prayer. He is going through rehab this week and must keep improving in order to get to stay on the rehab floor. We've seen improvement over the last 2-3 days and don't know what the future holds for recovery. Our hope is that he will be able to go home with family until he is able to return home in Rockaway Beach, MO. He is in the Branson hospital where he is getting some of the best care that I've ever seen. They have such a loving staff of people ready to help in anyway they can. We also need prayer for the safety of family members who are taking turns driving 4 hours from Kansas City to Branson to be with Jim. He does not want to be left alone and I don't blame him. His improvement in the last 2-3 days has been an answer to prayer but we continue to need prayer through his recovery. Jim is a man who loves to fish and rides a Harley. I'm sure the Harley is now in his past, but we definitely hope fishing is still in his future.
Now on a lighter note, this is what we saw when we came out from eating breakfast at the Farmhouse Restaurant in downtown Branson:
How can you not smile at a horse who thinks he is Dr. Suess!
