Prayers for Hubby's Family...

This weekend we are going to a wedding. (Maybe.) Kevin's cousin's daughter's wedding...does that make her his second cousin? I always get confused about the whole cousin thing.

Anyway, my hubby is suppose to perform the ceremony. It was going to be a fun get together of all his family...

Until Tuesday, the bride's grandpa, who is also Kevin's uncle, had a heart attack. They are going to do open heart surgery on him tomorrow. Please pray for this wonderful, Godly man. He is dearly loved by his family and his church. It is breaking his heart that he will not be able to attend the wedding of his only granddaughter.

As far as I know the wedding will go on. It is hard not to, when everything is reserved and paid for. (I will know for sure tonight.) However, there will be a little sadness on a day of celebration. For a very important man to the bride and the rest of the family will be missing from the wedding party.

Please pray for my hubby's dear family. It is the time of the year that we say our "thanks" for the special people in our lives, and Uncle Zeke is definitely one of those individuals.

Prayers being lifted in Uncle Zeke's name....he seems like such a wonderful part of your family, I am sure his spirit will be felt through this celebration.

Maybe someone can bring a webcam for him while he is recouping? (just thinking outside the box)

Mich,

Definitely asking God to find a way to share this beautiful time with him even though he can't physically be there.

Just be sure to take lots of pictures and I am praying for his healing as well.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

This is so sad, I'll be praying! I wonder if they could set up some kind of link to let him watch from the hospital?

I dropped by for a visit after seeing your info on Anne's "building His Body." very nicely done. And you now have someone whom you don't even know saying a prayer for "Uncle Zeke" and the wedding party. The family pictures are also very touching. Have you ever visited Neil Simpson's site? He's deals with a number of topics, and is especially involved with apologetics, pro-life, etc. Takes a strong stance. In addition, he and his daughters have great reports of their ballet performances, mission trips, etc. I admire both of you. donkimrey
