There is no change at the hospital. John continues to breath on his own without the help of a ventilator. John was moved to a regular room that allows Dot to stay with him. Mamie came to the hospital this morning and had breakfast with Dot. The doctors are keeping John comfortable. Dot mentioned the thought of John being a mason in Heaven, but using gold as the stones. (The Bible references “streets paved in gold.”) I like the thought of that.
Dot has let John know that it is okay to go be with God. It is what John needs to hear, even though those are hard words to say.
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
We pray this afternoon for peace, swiftness and finality. We know John is ready.
