My blog has taken a backseat to life here lately. I've either been too tired to post or just opted to spend more time with my family. All too often we take for granted just how PRECIOUS life is until it is too late. There are peaks and valleys that we go through in life and we are definitely in somewhat of a valley right now. We found out today that my father-in-law has stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I guess one might say that we are still in shock but on the other hand we know that God is in control and ultimately will not give us more than we can handle.
When I think back on our dating experience, I was touched immediately by the closeness of Matt's family. He and his dad especially. One of our first conversations about his dad had to do with the fact that Matt had never drank alcohol. I really just laughed and shook it off, thinking yeah right! But later I learned that really....he never has taken a drink. His dad asked him when he was 15 not to partake in the event and so he never did. I admire the fact that he looked up to his dad and respected him that much even at such an early age. Unfortunately for me I went through somewhat of a stubborn stage in which I thought my parent's didn't know much at all. Never until I became a parent myself did I TRULY appreciate all the sacrifices and love my parents gave. So that brings me back to Papaw. We are asking for prayers. Not necessarily for healing, but for God's will in this situation. May our faith grow through this journey and we learn to have child like faith. May we learn to value what is important and let the small things be just that. And MOST importantly may our children learn the invaluable lessons that we learned from our parents and be devout followers of Christ. That is my goal in all of this, I pray.
