Daddy


Here is a graphite picture I drew of my Father. In the photograph which inspired this drawing, Dad is looking down at his first-born grandson cuddled there in his arms.
.
We would appreciate your prayers for our Dad and Mom. Yesterday after leaving our home, they were involved in a terrible car accident. Mom is alright, though she is awfully shaken and terribly bruised. Dad has a broken vertebrae in his neck, but the spinal cord is still intact. They did not have to do surgery on his neck, because the fracture has been stabilized. Dad is very very frail. Please pray for Dad's healing, and for our family. Strange how life can change in one moment.

May God be with you and your family during this frightening time. May God grant His Healing Power and Grace to your Dad, Mom and the rest of your family. You and yours will be in my thoughts and prayers. I wrote a poem for those who are sick and thought it might bring you some comfort:

I ask our sweet Lord Jesus to touch your Dad with his very own hand and heal him as well as your mommy. God be with you and your family. And, I know , life is a fragil little thing , we never know what comes next and that is what make each moment so priceless. I haven't seen my parents in a while and every night I pray to God to please let me be with them once more! my warm regards to you my friend!

You are all so wonderful. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Dad is doing much better, but now there is an additional threat of pneumonia.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your thoughts and prayers. My family also sends their thanks. ((hugs))
