hit him with your best shot*
I'm not sure I remember how to blog. It's been so long!
Last Friday my Dad was told that they couldn't rule out cancer at that point and he might need a lung biopsy. :( Yesterday he was told that they think it's another serious but treatable disease and they can get the tissue they need through a bronchoscopy on Thursday. he has another ct scan today. he is still in a lot of pain so your prayers are really needed and appreciated. thank you so much. I wish I was there to take him to all of these appts. I am so thankful he has so many people that love him and want to help. :( If you knew my dad you would know how incredibly hard this is. The man does not like to sit still for very long. sigh.
On Saturday morning I again practiced turning my worries over to God. That is what he clearly says he wants us to do but it is SO hard. Worrying does no good for anyone. Praying? Yes. Praising God for all the good stuff? Yes. Worrying? no. So I am trying my best not to worry. It feels wierd...like I am not doing something I should be. how did worrying get so ingrained in us?
- Philippians 4:6-7 Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.(NLT)
I love having 3 kids at these different ages because I get some of everything. I get the chubby adoring baby, the crazy thinking and talking 5 year old and the big kid who I can actually have a real conversation with about important things.
I had an awesome time last night at water aerobics and then at Wendy's for a Bachelorette viewing party with her and Kelly. We laughed a lot, watched Ashley (and made fun of her...sorry.), and ate too many mini m&ms. We realized we all shared a past that involved prank phone calls. Were you a prankster?
I need to go get that baby up and brush my teeth. It was fun to be back here again today...I've missed the old blog.
*high five to susan for the awesome post title! :)
