My wife, my major caregiver, was in Branson for a refreshing week of relaxation with a large group of friends. I had a volunteer caregiver who is on call at all times while she is gone.

He had planned to help me attend a meeting called “Coffee and Conversation” at the United Methodist Church.

That morning at 5:00 AM I had a sharp pain in my hip that made walking dangerous. I decided to call him later and explain that I would not be able to go to the meeting.

At 8:00 AM he called to tell me he was running a fever and did not want to infect me.

I stood beside the bed and discovered that the pain was no longer a threat and told him not to seek another friend to care for me.

I spent the morning singing an appropriate little chorus called, “God Is So Good.”

One of the verses is very appropriate for this occasion. It says: “God answers prayer, God answers prayer, God answers prayer, He’s so good to me.”

My thankful heart thought, “Yes God answers today he answered my prayer before I formally took time to voice it.
