Many of you know my dad has been fighting lung cancer since we found out late summer/early fall that he has it. He has been enduring chemo and radiation and yet the cancer has been spreading quite rapidly. We have been in the hospital since Sunday, and things are very much touch and go. I hope it is ok that I am asking for prayers for him at this challenging time.

Just as Elvis is a legend in music history, my dad is a legend in the book of fatherhood.  Full of love, life, ideas, and charisma.  Singing has always been a big part of my dad’s being, and I have countless memories of dancing and singing with my dad.  One of hundreds of songs dad liked to sing before his throat started hurting so much is “Blue Suede Shoes” by Elvis.

    “Faith means being sure of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it.”
    Hebrews 11:1

    “Faith begins when you see God on the mountain and you are in the valley and you know that you’re too weak to make the climb. You see what you need . . . you see what you have . . . and what you have isn’t enough to accomplish anything. . . .” Max Lucado
