John 15:10 If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father’s commandments, and abide in His love.
I had a nice visit with my dad earlier in the day, so I was surprised to get a phone call to come back to the group home, because Dad wants to pack everything up and leave. I knew that the owner had been talking to a woman while I was there about her husband coming to live there. Dad's saying this got me to worrying. At the time, I was typing one of these posts and told them that I would be there in twenty minutes. That allowed me enough time to finish the post, close out, and high-tail it over to the group home.
When I got there, he was telling me that he wanted to pack up all the pictures, war ribbons, etc. that I had put up on the wall for him, I had a difficult time trying to figure out what was causing him to want to leave now. I tried to explain that he had already paid his rent for the new month and so he should plan to stay right where he was.
I first thought that his pain meds were messing with his mind, but his concerns were based on several discussions he overheard about the new person moving there. He was certain they were going to move into his room and he wouldn't have a place to stay. After lots of reassuring from the staff and from me, he realized that he had nothing to fear and could stay in his room. John 15:10 If ye keep My commandments, ye shall abide in My love; even as I have kept My Father’s commandments, and abide in His love
