My family has a lot going on. My family as in my parents and 3 younger siblings. To sum up what my dad has gone through health wise (and every other way) since 2004 is impossible so I am not going to try BUT I am going to ask you to pray for my dad. One thing you know if you have ever met my parents for more than 2 minutes is that they are warriors. They are solid, strong believers in the Lord in every way. I think one of the main weapons Satan can use against people like my parents is apathy, or passiveness. Do you ever get so tired and worn down from fighting a battle that you just give up. It probably happens so slowly that you don't even realize it. And then, the next thing you know; you are so tired and you realize that you just kinda stopped fighting. My parents have not stopped fighting (the spiritual fight) or given up once. Not once. But...they. are. tired. I believe that when you are tired though that is when God is most used and most glorified. It says in his word that "when we are weak, we are strong" and to "bear one anothers burdens" and to "Come to me all you who are weary and burdened" so my family and I are believing what we know to be true. Please believe with us. And pray for my dad....I will leave you with this from my mom
"Friends, after an unexpected meeting with a sweet friend this evening, I am reminded of the awesome power of our God. Suffice to say, that I have never stopped believing, even after 7 failed back surgeries and now an internal pain pump that God could heal Frank. Would you please join me, in praying specifically for Frank (I know so many of you have prayed with us for so long) tomorrow at 4pm for healing, for acceptance, for whatever God has for us, but I know that He has promised his plans for us, for all of us, are good. I realize this may be his plan and we will continue to walk faithfully...we are tired. God is good."
