dad in hospital....

Well on Wed. my dad went into the hospital. His heart is out of rhythm and after a test done yesterday they found a clot in his heart. So he is now in the hospital, on blood thinner, and being monitored. He feels fine. We are waiting for a blood work number to be where the doctors want it then he can come home.

God has all things in His hands. That is our daily confidence and confession. Where else would we be if we didn't believe that. He is our strength and in the midst of uncertainty He is our constant. Please be praying.

another homegoing.....

Many of you who have read this blog from the beginning may have remember George asking for prayer for my cousin Barbara. She had been dealing with illness for over ten years. Well last week she received her great promotion and joined George and her mom and many friends and family members at the feet of Jesus. She fought valiantly for years, one surgery after the other, you couldn't count them all on your fingers and toes. Many, many surgeries ending with a small bowel transplant about 3 or 4 years ago. She had been doing well initially but the last year are so she had been battling many infections and even possible organ rejection.

She is now at peace. I am so excited that she is with George. She and George used to cut up all the time and they loved God's creation basically Barbara and George were cut from the same clothe. Isn't that funny how those who seem to go early are ones we so admire and seem to have such a testimony of the goodness of God. Maybe we are left behind because we still have a lot to learn.

2009 has started off with a bang. I am involved with the American Cancer Society--Relay for Life Baton Rouge. I am the publicity chairperson, so I will be working to get the word out about this event in order to rasie money for cancer research, and assistance for those battling this horrible disease. We are trying to get teams together to raise money. Places of business, or even family groups can form teams and raise money. It is not a race or a walking event it is like a festival. Starting now though the teams are in competition with each other to raise money. I will keep you all updated about the event, and if anyone out there wants to rally a team of people together from your work or friends and family please let me know.

School is back in full swing and we have hit the ground running with Bryan's basketball games. It has been a lot of fun.

Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart, lean not on your OWN understanding, ACKNOWLEDGE Him in all your WAYS, and He will make your path straight. WOW what a promise and a challenge.

Another year has come and gone. They seem to do that much quicker these days. Maybe it's just cuz I'm getting older. Lauren and I brought in the New Year in Kansas City, MO at a praise and worship/prayer conference. Bryan was in Alabama with George's mom and dad. Lauren and I and several people from our church were blessed to be at this conference. Oh the urgency of the hour. The realization of the times we live in. Jesus has called us all to be set apart and stand for Him and await and hasten His return. What an awesome thought that our Lord and Savior WILL establish His Kingdom. He will reign in it and we will rule and reign with Him. Oh Lord what an incredible thought.

Happy New Year,
