1. Sacrificial in-laws
3 brothers-in-law + 1 sister-in-law = some incredibly giving people. They love my daddy like he’s their own. They’re giving up time from jobs, sleep at night, and missing their spouses to help us with this transition. Priceless.
2. Serving Siblings
I can’t say enough about how much I love my two sisters and brother. They leave me speechless.
3. A mother that loves my father
Even through Alzheimer’s, her love for him is so strong it amazes me. Ironically, she’s afraid that he’s forgotten who she is. But he hasn’t. Please say a special prayer for her…
4. A God that never forgets
Not a day, not an hour, goes by that He’s not sending us some new mercy. Right now I’m listening to my baby sister read Psalms to Daddy in bed. Fresh words from ancient times—that’s God’s grace.

I so appreciate those of you praying for our family as we journey with our dad over this last physical barrier before he reaches the other side. His spiritual death was years ago when he accepted Jesus—praise God!, but this physical yet necessary death is painful to watch.
