It’s hard to wrap my brain around the power of prayer. So many times you want to DO something, SAY something…not just pray. But I know it is never just prayer. It’s powerful and intimate and the very best thing one can do, especially in a situation where you feel helpless.
Josh is with his dad and mom and brother and grandma and many other family members right now. I am with the kids. I have had offers to watch the kids while I go down, but it hasn’t worked out that way. I have a peace about where I am and what I am doing; I love that Josh can focus totally on his mom and dad. I pray that this time is a blessing to all of them as they are together and caring for the sweet woman who means so much to us. Gran is so close to Heaven. It’s been two years since we’ve known that cancer was her diagnosis, but I wasn’t prepared for this. I suppose nothing can fully prepare you. It’s a very difficult thing for all involved, and I just don’t know what to say.
The days are difficult and the nights even more so.
“The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime; And His song will be with me in the night. Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God.” Psalm 42
Thank you for praying for Deb and Irv and the family…..
