Thank you all so much for praying for my father. As I have shared before it is always difficult to get that kind of news anytime but especially when you are “on the road”. But it was a precaution so that his congestion did not worsen. At 93 we cannot afford to take chances. He is better and I am hoping he will be discharged shortly. He is in good spirits and looking forward to Christmas. I am planning on going by to see him for myself later this week.

I had a good trip to Missouri to speak for the Vitae Foundation. They are an organization that helps fund advertising, media spots, radio and TV ads for Crisis Pregnancy Centers. So if you see an ad or billboard or hear a radio spot for a pro-life agency, no doubt the Vitae Foundation is behind it. The are a wonderful support agency helping to get the all important message out that there is an alternative to abortion. I was honored to be a small part of their event.

My grandson, Payson, had surgery this morning to remove a piece of tissue that was blocking his airway and while in there they were going to remove his adenoids as well. This piece of tissue was making his force air over his vocal chords much more than is normal. So with it removed it will take a day or two to realize he doesn’t have to force so hard – of course after he has healed. Slowly but surely they will get him off all the medical equipment. I am grateful that we have access to excellent medical care in this country. (That is not a political statement.)

My blog is up on BeliefNet:

It’s an entirely different blog – less personal. I am tackling the subject of transparency and authenticity. Take a look and let me know what you think.

    Hi, Ruth! I’m excited to see your new blog on BeliefNet. I’ve attempted to comment there, but have had no success logging in. Anyhow, I just wanted to let you know that I am in your corner…my passion is sharing hope with other defeated Christians by being real and transparent. It is no small task to undertake this is in the Church, but I pray you will be heard and accepted. My background includes similar circumstances as yours. I’m currently in the process of writing my first complete book that I pray will break some of the same barriers. Keep pressing on, take courage by faith, with a Hope that does not disappoint! 1 John 4:16
