A Prayer Request


Tomorrow is my Dad's birthday.
Happy Birthday Dad!
A few years ago I shared some of the miniatures that my Dad created. 
You can read more about it here.


This is the piece that started it all. Look at the toolbox in the bottom of this photo. All the tools were whittled by hand by Dad along with the decorative cane behind it.


Tomorrow I will head down to celebrate Dad's birthday, 
but also to take Dad for a lung biopsy on Wednesday.
May I please ask that you say a prayer for my Dad?


Mom and Dad have been through a lot this year.
We know the power of prayer in Mom's healing from surgery only two months ago
and in the wonderful news that her cancer is now in remission.
We appreciate the outpouring of love, prayer and well wishes from so many of you!
We can't possibly thank you enough.
We certainly didn't anticipate requesting more prayers so soon.
We pray for the same healing for Dad as he has been experiencing a lot of pain this week.
Prayers for healing, comfort and peace.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways
~Psalm 91:9-11

Blessings, Patti

"But I (your father) am like a green olive tree in the house of God.
I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever.
I will thank You forever, because You have done it.
I will wait for Your Name, for it is good, in the presence of the godly." Psalm 52:8-9

May His mercy and peace be with you, Patti, and with your father and mother.
