This last week...

...has felt like a bad dream and I will be able to wake up at any moment...and all of this will not be happening...but unfortunately I know its not a dream its very real...

...last Monday my dad called me to tell me I needed to come over he had something to tell me and he couldn't tell me over the phone...the news of him having a brain tumor has been a shock to all of us! He will be having surgery on Tuesday in Spokane ,WA. This last week I already had driven him there twice and we will have alot more drives to Spokane ahead of us.

For my friends who have prayed and added him to their prayer lists THANK YOU...please continue praying as I know how powerful the power of prayer can be...

Dear Lord--I lift up Renee and her family as they are struggling with the news of a tumor in her father's brain. Lord, I pray that you would comfort this family with your unfailing love and that you would speak to them during this time. I know we ask, "Why?" or "Do you care?"....Lord, I pray that Renee's family would know in their heart that you care for them deeply and that you have a plan. Lord, I pray for a healing in Renee's father. I pray that this tumor would decrease in size. Lord, I thank you for Renee's faith in you--Lord, I pray that they would lean on you and seek you during this time! Lord, I pray for your will--and I pray for this family as surgery is next week. Lord, thank you for your love and thank you for your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank you that you listen to us and bless us. I ask these things in Jesus' name- AMEN!

**Renee--I know this prayer is random...but I do lift you up and pray for healing! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help:) Keep me posted!

My heart and my prayers go out to you. I experienced all the feelings you are now when I went through a similar thing with my Dad. Lifting you, your Dad and your whole family up to the Lord.
