We Arrived in Iowa With a Prayer Request
Good evening everyone. Well, Nick and I made it to Iowa today. It was a long trip and we are glad to finally be here. However, it's been a rough trip already. We got a call on the way home from Nick's father telling us that Nick's grandpa had fallen ill and was probably not going to make it through the week. We didn't know just HOW bad he was until we reached the hospital. It was horrifying. Nick was completely shocked at the state his grandfather was in. He has had pnemonia and has fallen into an unresponsive state. He can hardly breathe and we aren't sure how much longer he will survive. Please keep us in your prayers this weekend. If he dies, I will not be able to make it back home in time for school on Monday and I don't have any kind of subplans ready. Pray that we allow God to take control of this situation and that He will give us a peace about everything. Pray for Nick and his family as well. This has been very hard on them. They weren't prepared for it. On top of this whole situation I have to act happy at my friend's wedding too. I am happy for her but I am constantly worried about my husband. He adored his grandfather and was extremely close to him. He regrets not being able to get to his grandfather before he entered this stage of illness. I may not be able to post much these next few days but I will try to keep you all updated.
Before I leave, I want to mention that I made this card for Jen del Muro's sketch challenge. I made it earlier this week and wanted to get it posted before she posts her new sketch tomorrow. I do love how it turned out.
Well, thats all for now. I'm going to bed. It's going to be a long weekend.
