Life as I Know It - Weekly Update #23


13 comments
These last few days have been the longest days of my life.  Watching someone you love so dearly lying in a hospital bed hanging on for dear life.  We have been anointing him with oil, praying over him, talking to him, holding his hand and although he can't respond I believe that he can hear us. 

Today's Bible Scripture for October 6 (via Biblegateway.com) 
Isaiah 26:4 (KJV)
Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

So no, I'm not running the 5K today, instead I'm spending time with my family and praying for my dad's recovery and that God's will be done in his life.  And when I feel up to it, I've been doing a little crocheting on the side.

Snuggling under the oldest quilt we have

Thanking everyone who has already been praying and for those of you who believe in the power of prayer, we would appreciate your prayers as well.  Thank you so much!

Love dearly,

  1. The race can be done again next year. Your Dad is more important by far. Prayers are still going on here Libby. Stay strong! Love and hugs to you and your family. :)

  2. You're running a different kind of long-distance race today, I think. Love to you and call any time.

  4. Oh sweetie, I'm so sorry to hear this for you. You will have many days to run your race. It may be disappointing and I am sure you would also not want to be at the race but rather be right were you are. I'm thinking of you.

  6. O Libby, you and your dad are in my prayers. "We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labour] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose". Hang in there; God IS faithful *hugs*

  9. Dear Libby,

    You know I talk a lot ...
    First I would say that looking at the picture you posted, I could see the outline of a lady bent, crocheting.
    I found it very interesting!

    Second, I saw the picture of his father, at the wedding of his brother,
    His father is strong physically speaking! His father is also an enlightened man in the spiritual sense!
    So let us pray, my friend! If the time his father did not, surely God will deliver this bed.
    But if it does not, make sure your father will be welcomed in heaven!
    Suffering is not good...

    Race...
    There will be others and you'll be all! You're young and strong, God certainly also will look for you in this direction!
    It'll keep praying ...
    Please tell me what is the name of your father?
    When I pray, I like to cite the person's name.

    Stay whit God!
