My Papa


My Papa and Jackson


My Papa and my little brother Jeremy


Not sure where to begin with this post so I will just get straight to the point. I am asking you to please pray for my papa. I found out a couple days ago that my granddad's cancer has come back. Of course it has taken me a few days to get a hold of this. Why does this evil cancer have to come back. He kicked its butt once, why come back...so he can kick it again I guess. Over the past couple of days I have really just wanted to run away. I even told my mom that I just wanted to crawl in a big hole. How much more???? Things just seem so overwhelming already then I find out about this and I just want to scream. But I trust our most sovereign Lord that He is in control. I really do trust that and know that, it is just overwhelming. Then I think about my Papa and what a great godly man that he is and I marvel at his calmness as he faces each health battle. I admire him for the way he handles incredibly difficult times. So please join me in praying for my Papa. Pray for his strength as he fights this cancer battle once again. Pray that this 4 month treatment will work and there will be no need for plan b. Papa has other health problems as well so please pray that these do not affect his treatment or recovery. Pray for my Mama Beth as she cares for him. Thank you for your prayers!

Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Because I've recently dealt with this myself, I understand how hard it can be to watch someone you love go through it! Just remain strong and continue to stay close to GOD! Please tell your family I said hello and they are in my thoughts and prayers as well. Your papa holds a special place in my heart as of known him almost my entire life... Love you!!!
