Many good people come to this blog and read these words. Many of you have been praying for my family, as we have been going through some very rough times lately. These prayers have come from very unselfish hearts. I'm sure that if I knew what some were going through, I wouldn't fault you for not thinking of my troubles. And a couple of you lost some folks dear to your hearts.
HappyWife replied to an email I sent the other day. She had told me that the good news I sent "Lifts my spirits from the sad news that I shared on my blog last night." The news she was referring to was a blogging friend of hers had passed away after suffering from end stage cystic fibrosis. The good news is that he is now with the Lord. And he now breathes with no trouble at all. Deron was also a blogger with assistance from his wife. Read about his struggles and his love of the Lord by clicking here.
Annie shared with me personally and all her Facebook friends that her father in law passed away yesterday morning. This was at the end of a long battle. The family was around, and his home going was very peaceful. He is now in God's presence and with those who went on before him.
Although I rejoice for those who have gone on as they suffer no more, I also ask for prayer for these families, especially with the holidays coming. I'm sure that there will be an empty place at the table as well as an empty spot in many hearts.
