I know I’ve been horrible with keeping up on my blogging, I’m sorry. I still think of, and pray for, you often!
I wanted to give you all a few updates. First, my brother, Matt, is doing great. He has one more procedure next week, but after that he should be good to go. He’s making great progress, and is tube free! He’s back to work, and getting back to life as usual. It’s been a long and excruciating 6 months, but praise The Lord, He is ever faithful! Even in the darkest times, The Lord made His presence known. We believe there were many Heavenly interventions and miracles taking place the whole time. We continue to pray for complete healing in Matt’s pancreas, that the issues would never resurface in any way, shape, or form. Thank you SO much for covering us all in prayer.
My other update is on Uncle Tim. He never did wake up after the accident this summer. He was finally taken off of life support about a month ago. His body finally let go last night just before eleven. Thanks for all of the prayers. He was an awesome guy and will be greatly missed by many.
His knack for sarcasm was one of my favorite qualities in him. There were many times when we lived in Texas that I would be so sad, missing loved ones. Out of the blue one day, he popped up on instant messenger and struck up a conversation, we talked most days after that. We would chat over instant messenger or video chat (he lived in California), and he would have me rolling with laughter over his sarcastic humor. The next moment he would be encouraging me with comforting words, and bringing tears to my eyes. He and Aunt Kathy (who has since passed away) included me in their day to day life, sending pictures of their garden, new projects, and pictures of recipes/wine they were testing out..because of him, and Aunt Kathy, I didn’t feel so alone. After Aunt Kathy passed away, it was hard for him to communicate as much with all of us, which I understood. I saw him a few times after she passed, he still always had a smile, a heartfelt hug, and an I love you to offer. That was enough for me. I simply adored him. We were truly blessed to call him family. It’s my hope and prayer that he is dancing on streets of gold this morning, and forevermore.
Love to you all, have a beautiful day. Make the moments count!
