I’m with my family in Richmond today. According to the doctors, my father in law is not doing too well right now. My heart is broken, what a great man he is. For 20 years, Merle has loved me like his own son… the most kind and patient man I’ve ever known. His influence in my life is beyond words.
Since the day my son was born, I have prayed a thousand times, that Coree Balsamo would grow up to be JUST LIKE MERLE.
I’m not writing him off yet… Merle has a powerful faith and he’s become quite an expert at moving mountains. Merle talks about eternity like it’s in the next room. He told Coree, “Don’t worry about me Coree, I’ve prepared for this and the Lord is taking care of me.”
I’m feeling so much pain for Emily, she is the biggest daddy’s girl I’ve ever met… understandably! She’s hurting and there’s nothing I can do except pray for Gods grace. Thank God for grace… for times like these when we cannot take another step… and he carries us.
Sorry for taking so long to post this mornings blog… expect delays these next few days. I’m still praying for you all… hope you feel the difference.
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!
