His Eye is on the Sparrow!

As I write this, I am listening to an old spiritual singer belt out “His eye is on the Sparrow”. And, as I write this, I know HE is watching me! I feel that power, and it brings such peace!

I realize this letter is long over-due. Such is life! At this very moment, my dad is officiating the memorial service for my Aunt Priscilla. Her loss obviously grieves my heart for many reasons, but today, I ache because I am not there to celebrate her life with my family. My dad’s request was that he would clearly share The Truth of The Gospel, as most in attendance would not know Jesus as their Savior. I can’t fathom not having Jesus…My Grammy was able to fly out with my Aunt Cynthy for the service!

My dad’s surgery is tentatively set for November 19th in Philly. It’s a sticky situation, because of insurance- blah! His insurance only wants to cover his surgery with a Scranton doctor (no offense, but no thank you!). And we obviously want his surgeon who is nationally known, and has already opened up my dad 2 previous times (Umm…EW.) from Philly. Please pray that Dr. Bavaria is allowed to perform the operation! We love Dr. Bavaria!

Lastly, I quit Starbucks today. Holy Yikes. It came down to the fact that I know it’s the right decision. I won’t go into all the logistics, but I completely believe this is how God is leading me. What’s next for me? I have no clue. I know that my priority is my sweet baby nephew Chail through June and as for extra income before then? No idea! I do feel compelled to crack down, and finish my book. That, I know. But that is very scary to me, as well!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU all for praying for my family and me! You, His body, are being used to be His hands and tangible touch as we strive forward together. My entire family wants to express our deep gratitude for those invaluable prayers and your unending support…

Love you all so much!
