When I sat down to write my last blog I thought I’d share some of my fretting and stewing that I advise other people not to do. Preachers can be their own worst enemy when it comes to taking their own advice. What I did not expect was the outpouring of prayers and love demonstrated by so many of you. Thank you.

The testing is over for now. Next Thursday is the surgery – same day surgery (it all seems like that for most things lately). I am reluctant to talk about this too much – it’s like someone talking about hemorrhoid surgery (that is NOT what I am having). In many ways I’m a private guy with a very public job. Yet, I believe in the power and importance of prayer. I pray for many many people and I have witnessed first hand the power of prayer to help lives, change lives, heal lives, and to bring hope to lives of people just like you and just like me. I will look at the comments you have made many times and find a great source of strength from them. I think of friends who have had struggles many times worse than mine – I don’t want to be a baby about this. I also want you to forget to ask for prayer when you need it. Don’t every be afraid to ask.

God has given us this powerful gift to share and not hide away or keep secret. I will take the time to pray for each of you who has sent me a note, called, to talked to me personally. Thank you.

On a slightly lighter note, on this day in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential proclamation establishing the very first national Mother’s Day holiday in celebration of America’s mothers. The idea for a “Mother’s Day” is credited to two women who both suggested this holiday be dedicated to a “day of peace”. Woodrow Wilson said it was to be a day that we, “[publicly express] our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.” Today was the day daughters, sons, and husbands – don’t ever forget it.

Be Well…
