Working on the next blog post titled “Broken Love” and how we all love broken, but I’m taking a break from writing and twenty million other things to update you all on a few things and ask you to join me in something that has been bubbling up from my heart.
First the Updates:
Sweet Brooklyn (or Brookie Cookie, or Cookie) is doing great! She weighs over 14 pounds now, and is developing right along with her adjusted age of six months and she brings so much joy to all of us! I LOVE HER!!!
My dad is now on hospice for stage 4 Lymphoma cancer. Back in March, his oncologist made that recommendation. It took him a while to agree but he finally made the decision to let hospice care for him. Continued prayers for my dad and our family is so appreciated. He has a relationship with Jesus, and when Billy Graham passed away, my dad said he wanted to go be with Jesus and Billy. We know it’s not on our time frame but the Lord’s and we place our wholehearted trust in Him.
Now Join Me in Kindling Kindness
With everything going on in our world (but we know God is in control), I want to inspire and encourage kindness. I’m inviting everyone to join me in sharing on my Life Over Coffee Facebook page or in the comments of this blog where you saw, received or offered kindness. The ideas are limitless and don’t have to be extravagant. If you end up taking a photo of the kindness, you can reply in the comments on the post and insert the pic or please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can post the pic on the page.
