New Blog and My Father

I trust you all had a happy Thanksgiving. I had all of my childrena and grandchildren this year – the first time in years! Around the table we had 12 adults and 10 children – 8, 8 yrs. and younger. It was wild – fortunately, I had done a lot of cooking ahead of time. My son, Graham, is still here. I am enjoying the extra company and time with him – I don’t get that very often.

Well, I am now blogging for Visit me there!

I am hoping to get good feedback from it as I continue to beat my drum for transparency and authenticity within the Church.

I head out today for Missouri, my last plane trip of the year!

Just got a call from my father’s chief of staff. My father is back in the hospital with congestion. They admitted him to be proactive – at 94 it is best to be extra careful. Please pray for him and the doctors and nurses.

And pray that I will be focused on the task at hand.

    Thank you for posting an update on your father. My husband and I, as I am sure millions do, love and pray for Billy.

    Although I know he will be happy to be with your precious mother and our Lord, selfishly we are saddened whenever we hear news that he takes a downturn in his health. He is always in our hearts and in our prayers.

    I knew you would post his condition and am happy to know that this is precautionary.

    We are praying for him and for you, your family and your ministry.
