TO:

Daddy


FROM:
Me :)
-----------------------------

Okay, I know Father's Day was almost a week ago...
but I just couldn't resist posting this picture!

Unfortunately, Dad is still having trouble with being confused and not always understanding what we say. He's also having a hard time communicating with the right words. So... whenever we try to tell him something and he starts getting frustrated because he doesn't understand, we just say,

"I love you!"

And he smiles and says, "I love you."

-------------------------------

Daddy, I can't wait for you to get better. I know you like to take a peek at my blog every now and then, so I'm leaving this here as a surprise for when you are well and come back!

These past few weeks have been tough, and I realize at this point it's not yet over. But I am confident that God will restore you to good health soon. I know He has a purpose and a plan that is being carried out, and we all trust that His will is going to be accomplished. And I pray when that time comes we will all be mature and complete, lacking nothing. Until then... "Press on!" :)

I love you.
And I ALWAYS will.

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive a crown of life that God has promised to those who love him."

James 1:2-4, 12
