Whirlwind trips

Just a quick little hello...we've been vacationing with family in Cali! Let me tell you...whew...it's been something else. The weather has been a sweltering 106 degrees and I'm lonesome for my Washington weather! It won't be long and I'll be back on the road to an easy breezy climate. I've had a great visit with the family and it makes me realize how important each and everyone of them are to me. I'm desperately missing my nieces and nephew growing up, I don't know if it's worth living apart anymore. These big life questions are hard to answer...but that's why we have prayer, right? As a matter of fact I have a pretty big prayer list in the making right now. So, I have a request for all you prayer warriors out there...where is God leading our family right now? We need guidance and confirmation for our family's path. Also my Papa (grandpa) is very ill. He 's had many health issues this year and I believe with all my heart he's ready to go home with the Lord. He's tired of living in his old body and often times when visiting with him this week I hear a yearning in his voice when he talks about heaven. Of course I'm not ready to live without him...he's had the most spiritual influence in my life other than my husband. I thank God he's my papa, and I've been blessed to have ever known him. I can't wait for the day that he gets to meet Jesus...I can't help but be excited for him. So...if it crosses your mind ever, just send up a little prayer for our family, we need it. Thanks so much blogger gals...I know I can count on you!
