Further Update

After writing my report on Dad Golden, my heart was settled down and I got to thinking...It must be God's timing because now Dad Golden will have that chance to quiet himself while he is waiting and really face the situation.I had two chances to say something about the Lord to him yesterday.The first was when he was in such turmoil downstairs waiting...He said.."Just let me die!"I said, "Yes and then what dad?"That is all I said.The next time was upstairs and his nurse was talking nicely to him and he said. "I have six daughters and three sons. I lost one boy when he was 35 and it still hurts me."I told the nurse right in front of Dad while I patted dad. "No we didn't lose David. He is in heaven and if dad only believes in Jesus, he will see him again. His mom is there too"[Gramma Golden wasn't saved until she was in her 70's]With all of your prayers, I am sure that God is going to use every opportunity that He can to speak to dad.I will keep you updated..And I am so relieved that mom has postponed her appointment until Dec 10.And yesterday Grace who stayed with her took her out to a good restaurant where mom had a good meal, so I really think that her difficulty in swallowing is because she has had so much stress..I will not go up to the hospital until I hear that they are giving dad the operation because I think that he should be alone with God. I will take my mom out instead because maybe she will be able to handle a baked potato at Wendy's, eh?She will be stay overnight at Betty and John's for the next little while until Dad comes home..We all do what we can and this is what Betty can do.I love you all so much!...love Terry

Terry, I know I don't comment much, but I wanted you to know I do read your blog and am praying for you guys! We just went through a major scare with my FIL and he ended up with 4 bypasses... I know exactly what you guys are going through!!!

May the God of all peace and comfort be with each of you!

Miss Terry, I just read the past four posts about your dad's condition and now your mom. Please take care of yourself so you don't wind up in the hospital too from stress. Your dad is in a good situation now to receive the Lord. May his heart literally be softened to accept his free gift! Hugs and more prayers.

Mrs. Shirkie,

It's time to update my address book ;) I lost Julie-LM's address, and never wrote her like I wanted to...can you please give it to me? Also my sister wanst to put together something special for Saija, so we need her last name and address. And we got a great package idea for Paul Mackay...can you please ask Mr. Fisher for the best address for Mr. Mackay? Home or Grandma Fisher's? I don't have either in any case.

That's it for now. Thank you VERY much! Did you gte your card yet?!

Love and Prayers

Dear Hebrews 11:1...Yes I DID get your nice card..
I wrote about it on my comments on Mr.Jim's salvation post..

I will look for Julie's address and give it to you where you met Pilot-Mom so much. You remember where that is, eh?...Love Mrs. Shirkie

No, Mrs. Shirkie, where was that?! I couldn't even remember where I wrote this! My memory is so bad from staying up way too late, and getting up early...Sorry about that.

Love and Prayers,
LPP

PS And the other addresses?...

Mrs. Shirkie,

Most importantly right now, can you please ask Mr. Fisher for Mr. Mackay's address? We have something to brighten his day, and I'm sure he can use it right now. Thank you so much.

Love and Prayers,
LPP

Dear Anon...Seeing as Pilgrim sees Mr. Mackay so much, maybe you can send it in care of him to give to Mr. Mackay...What say?...Love Mrs. Shirkie..

hebrews 11:1 said...

I could...but then WHEN will Mackay get it?! All right, I'll ask Pilgrim himself for the address on an old post, and MAYBE he'll respond to me. I wish he wrote back more on his comments...seriously, I hardly get a response back from the guy! I write him a letter by snail mail once a month and I've asked a few questions over time, and he still hasn't answered any question I've ever asked him via his blog! One day I'm gonna ask my parents about e-mailing y'all...that will be sooo much easier! ;)

Love and Prayers,
LPP

Oh, which old post was that that I'm supposed to get JulieLM's address? Funny thing is I'm soooo busy with projects right now (we're supposed to complete 3 this week), and I'm taking on more ;) Just to brighten someone's day...
