Wordless Wednesday-Don't that just take the cake?

Alternately titled:
The reason I didn't have time to get online
all weekend.

It was far from perfect, but all in all I think it's
pretty darn good for our first fondant attempt! :)

Sorry, this is going to be one of those downer
kinda posts. That's just where I am today.

Paul's dad's cancer is pretty much throughout his
body. There's not much they can or are willing
to do as he's 72 and not in the best health anyway.
The Dr told him they can do chemo but it's not going
to cure may just prolong things a bit-
and make him miserable in the meantime.

They gave him 3-6 months, and said a year would be
an absolute miracle.

I am sad. I am troubled. But not for the reasons you
think. Yes, I am sad that he is dying, but I know he is
saved and has said he is ready to go home to Jesus so as
sad as his dying is, I know where he's going and that is
some comfort.

I am sad that the kids and I hardly know him. I am troubled
that we are not closer to him, and that he is dying without
really knowing his grandchildren or them really knowing
him. I am bothered that he and his son never really got along.

Paul and his dad have never been close, and although they
have both made huge strides in the last few years to remedy
the situation, they still don't have a typical father-son
relationship. And now it's almost too late to change anything.

I am praying that they can resolve 37 years of issues in
3-6 months. Sounds impossible, but with God, all things
are possible. I think Paul really needs to face his dad,
say him what needs to be said, and give him his forgiveness.
And I pray that his dad will listen.

I've never known anyone who's been handed a death sentence
and it is truly bizarre. I can't wrap my brain around it.
We have told the children he has cancer, but haven't told them
he only has a short time left. I don't think we will tell them.
It's hard enough for me to process...I can't imagine being young
and having to deal with it.

Thank you for praying along with me when I posted about the
his cancer the first time. You cannot know how much it means
to know that I have friends that I've never even met
(and a few I have!) who are
willing to go before the Lord and petition on the behalf of
my family member. Thank you, thank you. You
all mean so much to me!

The Lemonade Award

My friend Julie over at Momma4Real gave me the
Lemonade award last month and I'm just getting
around to posting about it! Sorry Julie!!
Thank you so much!!

The way this award works is:

1. Thank the giver of the award and link to their blog.
2. List 5 things about yourself.
3. Link 5 new recipients and notify them.

So...5 things about me...

1. I've always liked scary stuff. The first books I
bought on my own were Christopher Pike.
{tell me I'm not the only one who knows who he is}
I love supernatural stories...
vampires, ghosts, werewolves, vampires.

2. If life had gone according to my plan, I'd be living in
New York right now, singing in a Broadway show. When
I graduated I wanted nothing more than to be Eponine
in Les Miserables. I had the drama/vocal scholarship to
Northwestern State University (where I recently found out I
only missed meeting Kimber there by a year!! How cool would
that have been?? I only attended about 3 months.)
My plan, obviously, was not God's plan.
Thank you, Lord. :)
I am, however, halfway through my senior year of a music
ed degree with an emphasis in voice, but I haven't attended
school since around 2001. As of right now I have no real
desire to go back and finish it. My desire is to finish having
babies and raise my family. Then maybe I'll go back.
I do, however, miss the singing.

3. I don't like to take baths.
Wait-let me rephrase.
I don't like to bathe.
Good grief...that's not any better...
Let me try again.
I don't like bathing in the bathtub.
I love a hot soak in the tub, but then I wash my hair,
put the conditioner in to sit while I soap up. Then I
get in the shower to rinse off. I just can't stand knowing
I'm rinsing off in the same yuck I was trying to wash
off to begin with!

4. I'm a painfully picky eater. And I hate it. I don't like most
veggies or any seafood. Paul says my
tastebuds don't work right, but I say they work too well.
I think they're hyper-sensitive and I taste everything
TOO well. My overworking sense of smell doesn't help.
Things like broccoli or seafood smell so strongly that I
can't even put them to my mouth. I try to taste new things.
Alot of it just tastes bad to me.

5. I belly dance.
Are you laughing?? Stop laughing!
I didn't say I was any good at it, but I do take lessons.
My friend Konnie and I have taken 4 or 5 semesters
worth. It's fun time by ourselves, plus it's a workout,
and you can't help but feel sexy when you're moving
your various body parts like that! I highly recommend it.
And my picks are:

3. Erica at Scottsville
5. Mimi at He & Me + 3


P.S. I tried to post this way earlier but Blogger was wiggin'
out and wouldn't publish or save!
