Pray Request

Today is the day. Today my father in law has surgery, surgery because he has cancer. I hate that word...the word cancer. It's terrible! Sunday night cancer took the life of my uncle. Then 48 hrs. later we are sitting in the waiting room as they operate on my husbands father. We have known this surgery was coming for weeks now...we have been in prayer. We had dinner together as a family Sunday evening...we are trusting God. There is nothing else we can do...we know we can trust in him. We have someone to lean on.

I knew May would be a tough month. I knew memories of last May would rush back. The few memories I have of pregnancy at mostly from the last few weeks...the first few weeks of May. Now not only is it tough for Mark and I's personal situation we are also going to be praying for his father and attending services for my uncle. Mark happens to be on his 2 week break right now so I guess timing worked out.

I know I have said this before but this post/blog is NEVER meant to be a pity party. It's where we are in our life right now. I know there are people that have terrible things happening to them right now too. This is my journal about my life. We just are thankful everyday we have a heavenly father who is ALWAYS there for us. He is there for us when we feel all alone. So please pray for us today as we wait for the outcome of his surgery, as we sit in the waiting room together as a family.

Thank you.
