An Update on Mom & Pop

My dad went back into the hospital this morning and my mom is not doing well because she had to take care of him most of the night. The fluid in her abdomen had accumulated making it very difficult for her to breath and also she is very weak. My dad is very weak too and has congestive heart failure and hypertension. I am just asking all friends to pray, this has been a horrible month. I am at peace, I know the Lord is working. My sister is very stressed but she is praying and we are believing for God's will. It is very hard to see our parents suffer, they have been such good parents and I am praising God today for giving me to them--I have truly been blessed by their wonderful parenting and their example of putting the Lord first. I know He has these two people in the palm of His right hand because they have served Him and loved Him their whole lives and His word says, "He will never leave us nor forsake us"..... AMEN

Lisa - (I posted this in my comments to you but want to be sure you get it!)we are reading through Proverbs daily as a family. So much wisdom there - the children and I are being truly blessed!

We prayed together as a family for your parents and you!

Wow. So much going on for you and your family. I will be lifting you all in prayer!

Yes, I will be praying for them both. It is stressful when our parents get sick but God is so faithful!

You asked me how Hannah and Sarah were and that you'd been praying for them. I think you confused me with someone else because I don't know who you're talking about! But I hope they are doing well whoever they are.
