My family has been in the middle of a roller coaster this past month.
My mom's dad, my Grandpa Pettit, has had a whole slew of things happen that have caused his health to decline dramatically and rapidly.
It has been a very trying time for my mom and her siblings, as well as my grandma and the rest of us in the family. Just when we think he might be out of the woods, another enemy comes up and rattles the cage again and worse.
Right now, he's in the ICU and the family has once again gathered together. The future is unknown but there is no shortage of love, hope and prayer among all of us, and for Grandpa Pettit.
Yesterday, after spending nearly 12 hours at the hospital, I was driving home and looked straight into one of the more beautiful sunsets I've seen in a long time. I pulled over, hopped out of my car and took a couple of pictures.
I felt like God was talking to me, saying "I am here. Even if things seem desolate and hopeless, I am here. I am with you. I am here always."
We feel you, God. Grandpa feels you too.
Thank you to everyone who has prayed for us. We welcome your continued prayers as the future, and God's will for our family unfolds.
