My dad and I have not spoken since my mother died in December 2010. I have siblings that I have never meet. I have a sister who looks like me. We are two years apart. My dad and I never had a relationship when I was growing up. I always felt like he did not like me. Lord, it is time for all the hate and angry between us to end. I pray that we can have a relationship. He is the only parent that I have left. Everything, is according to your will. Amen.

My grandson is 2 days old, he was born November 16th. He is beautiful, just as every newborn is. He was born with a value in his heart that doesn't open enough. The doctor said that Carson is not in immediate danger and they want him to be closer to 2 months old before his surgery to repair the valve. Surgery is not an 'if' but a 'when'. I pray for peace, strength, and courage for his parents, my son and daughter in law. I pray that this draws them closer to, and a dependence on, our Father. Thank you and may God richly bless you.
