Prayer Update

My sister, Marsha, arrived safe and sound to be with our mother and step father in PA. Thank you so much for your continued prayers. She travelled most of the night only getting 2 1/2 hours of sleep. His eyes are glassy, very disoriented, shallow breathing, speaking incoherently in English and Swedish, retaining fluid, and when he saw that Marsha was there he asked her if it was alright now if he could go now. She told him, "yes." He is ready to go "home". We just don't know when. Pray for mom, this is very difficult on anyone, let alone someone who is 86 years old and loosing her husband of 31 years.

My heart and mind is with them as well. It is so hard for me to be across country during this time when I want to be there and hold them all, but we will be back there this Summer.

Thank you again for your continued prayers. God bless you all.

I just love you and your sister! My prayers are fervently being said during this time for your dear family. It is a very difficult time as I went through this with my mom when I was her caregiver at home when she passed away. The grace of God was with us and I know that His grace is covering all of your family at this time. I will continue to pray for God's will at this time and for His grace, tender mercies, peace, tranquility, strength, courage, trust in Him, joy in the midst of all of this, compassion, and so much more for your stepdad, your mom and the entire famiy. May your entire family line come to know the Lord even more through all of this. I pray it all in Jesus precious name. Amen.

(((Many, many hugs and love to you dear, swee friend))),

I have been praying for you and Marsha both. I am so sorry that you cannot be there also.
