my daddy

Thursday, November 1, 2012

Those of you who have had fathers who worked hard for them, who took care of all of their needs and who showed love for them in so many of the things that they did each day, KNOW that a father is absolutely a gift.

There are so many children who do not have a father to care for them. There are so many children who live, wondering where there next meal will come from. There are children in this world who do not have a home to call their own and who wonder if they will be safe at night.

But that was not me.

I am so very grateful that I had a father who always took care of me. My dad loved me through the many ways that he took care of me each day.

But, now my father is sick.
He's really sick.


Yesterday, I found out that my father's cancer has spread to his liver.
This isn't good.
In fact, it's really, really hard.

(My parents on their 50th wedding anniversary.)

And even though it's hard for me, it's even harder for my mom, who has been married to this faithful man, who has truly loved her, for over 50 years.

(My mom and dad and their four children.)

Would you please pray for both my dad and my mom?

(My mom and dad and their grandchildren.)

Thank you, dear ones.
Your prayers mean more to me than I could ever express.

Praying for your beautiful parents and for you!! I was blessed with decent parents, but not parents like yours. I can't imagine how difficult this time is for your mom and for you! But one thing we both know is that we serve an amazing God who will walk this walk with you every step of the way!

I'm so sorry to hear about your dad, Sarah. But that's great that you were able to get to MN and spend some time with him. I will keep your whole family in my prayers! Big hugs to you.
