Ebe's Guidance Was Good, But God's Is Better
- Written by Lon Lorton Lon Lorton
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5 ESV
It’s time for me to give an update on the Lorton household. Most of you know that my mother has moved in with Pat and me. It was sometime back in April, after we knew that my brother Len would be at St. Louis University Hospital for the long haul, receiving his regimen of chemotherapy that may go on for several more months. His form of leukemia is a tough one to beat and the side effects are difficult, too. He’s been hospitalized now for nearly five months, going back to the illness that led to his diagnosis.
Len and Mom shared an apartment in Macomb, Illinois. We convinced her that it would be better for her to live with us rather than by herself. More convincing was the fact that we can get her to St. Louis a lot more often from Kentucky than we could if she stayed in her apartment. So, Len is in a strange place as he battles cancer. Mom is in a strange place as she is living under someone else’s roof for the first time in her nearly 92 years of living. And Pat and I are in a strange place as we all are trying to figure out a new normal on the fly.
