My FIrst Love

My first love was my daddy. He made everything right in my little world. I just love this picture of him and my grandbaby I took a couple of months ago. I never used to think my dad was a little man or old. Seeing him thru my adult 40 something eyes, I never realized how petite he was. Seeing him in a hospital gown really brought home that he is aging.

All the grandkids call him "Big Daddy" The very first grandchild started calling him that, and here we are 30 years later and everyone refers to him as Big Daddy.

Big Daddy is still in the hospital. He's insisting he is fine and wants to go home. The test results are saying otherwise. Apparently, there is either a small blockage or some damage to his heart. Tomorrow more tests will be run. He should be home sometime on Saturday.

Oh how I love this man. He's been there for me thru 45 years of ups and downs, happy and sad times, cross country moves, a horrible divorce, he held my hand and kept my spirits up while my husband served in Iraq. When I was playing softball in high school, he'd get home from work, and hurry to the ball field to catch the last couple innings of my games. I know he's only a phone call away.

He's my hero.

He's my daddy.

And I love him.

Resting in Jesus,

My Daddy Is In The Hospital

My daddy was admitted to the cardiac care unit this morning. During his MRI appointment, he had a bad reaction to the iodine solution they pumped into him and his entire body swelled obstucting his airway. My stepmom said he looked like a monster and his face was swollen so much he could not open his eyes. He was still pretty swollen when I got there. His blood pressure is low. He is started to feel a little better. Not sure if they will be keeping him overnight for observation. I am hoping they do.

Prayers are appreciated, his name is Alex.

Resting in Jesus,

Someting Is Wrong With This Picture...

The Bible
calls debt a curse
and children a blessing.

But in our culture,
we apply for a curse
and reject blessings.

Something is wrong with this picture.

A Day Of Fasting And Prayer

Pastor Linny has organized a day of fasting and prayer today to intercede on each other's behalf and storm the gates of heaven with our prayers. Two weeks ago many of us came together for fasting and prayer and the Lord heard our prayers and saw our fasting and He moved the mountain for James and Cheremi to bring their children home.

Today at A Place Called Simplicity you can leave your prayer request in the comment section and people all over the world will be praying for you.

Resting in Jesus as I fast and pray,
