never been here before

Honor your father and mother, as the Lord your God commanded you. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

I’ve never sat here before.  But I’ve been in other similar places with the people I get to serve with.  Just have so many different things going through my mind and my emotions.  There have been lots of prayers.

That picture is of my mom and dad sometime around 1960.  I didn’t show till 1970, but they are incredible people.  My brothers and I are so very blessed!

Let me say this, hospital furniture is pretty uncomfortable.  I spent last night in my mom’s hospital room.  She is not doing well.  Your prayers mean much to my family and to me.

I arrived in Tulsa, Oklahoma last night and knew that I would see her in a state that I have never seen her in before.  She is not responding at this point to any of us.  About 7 months ago she broke her, and that began the process of what we are seeing now.  It wasn’t until last week that something changed this much. 

All I can do is pray, support my family, listen carefully and believe what I have been telling others for 25 years.  Faith is important.  I know and fully believe that God is in control.  We do have and don’t need all the answers.  I will trust God and ask for wisdom.

I will honor my mom and dad and continue to be grateful for the blessings in my life.  There is more to come.

Her children rise up and bless her; Her husband also, and he praises her, saying: “Many daughters have done nobly, But you excel them all.”  Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

From my earliest childhood I can remember my mom teaching me about God, about faith and seeing her love and care for my family.  We have been so blessed.

Thank you for your prayers.
