This a picture of my handsome younger brother Dan with my grandson Jared. (This is a few years back...I need more pictures of him!) Dan is 58 now and is facing Heart Surgery today. He will have a 4 or 5 by-pass this afternoon. Poor guy!
Wednesday evening he had a heart attack and also found out he is diabetic, and has high blood pressure and high cholesterol issues. Needless to say he will have to make some major life-style changes. Please pray that he will make it through the surgery, and that he will draw close to God during this long journey of recovery.
He will be staying with us when he leaves the hospital, so would you also pray for strength for my husband John and I as we take care of him, and try to help him with his journey back to better health? We will all need God's help.
Thanks so much!
Here's a quote from Dr. Charles Stanley that has helped me this morning:
"It’s actually when life gets rough and rugged that the sweetness of God’s faithfulness makes itself real in your heart. As you walk through those storms in complete reliance on His strength, your trust in His character becomes part of who you are and strengthens from within."
