|Callie, Eric and Pop- July 2008|
|Pop and Eric in Chicago, 2010|
Looking back, 9-18 months sounds like an eternity, especially compared to the prognosis that was just given to Pop! That may have been the worst news I’d ever heard. It’s hard enough to have someone unexpectedly die, or even to know someone is on their way out of this life. But to be told that someone you love only has 2-4 weeks left on this earth, and I’m on the other side of the world, totally powerless and at the mercy of someone or something that cannot sympathize with me in the least bit. I have to tell you, my heart is as heavy as it’s ever been.
Lord I pray peace and patience over my family. I pray that you would fill their hearts with joy and replace any fear or doubts in their heart. I pray for the strength to continue to walk in your word Lord, and to stand fast on the promise that YOU made Pop to live to the age of 86! In Jesus name, Amen.
