    Beautiful! Just as your parents have always been so giving to others, here you are sharing these blessings with us even during this difficult time. Helping others to see Gods hands working even when you don't feel the strength to write the words. I also wonder how others do it without God. His grace shines through your words. Praying for you and your beautiful family for a daily, even hourly measure of grace as only He can give!

    Julie, This is a beautiful post and one I relate too. My 89 year old dad moved in with us after having mini strokes. Though challenging at times I wouldn't trade this time with him for anything. Your dad is lucky to have you.

    I love your blog but have never replied. I have been touched by the recent postings regarding your father and your family coping through this difficult time but this post in particular struck a chord. You are saddened but filled with grace and peace. I truly admire your strength as well as sharing your personal journey through this time of sadness but serenity. Thank you for continuing to post to this blog, if it were my dad, I hope I have half the strength to keep posting rather than crawling under a self pity rock! Most sincerely and many blessing to you and your family. Nicole Perry (Houston, Texas)

    Praying for you, your dad, and your whole family as you walk this journey with him. I lost my mom last year the day Easter. She was a mighty woman for God. But it's still a hard road to travel. May you feel His comforting presence in the days ahead.
