ENCOURAGEMENT FOR DAD

Danielle gave me a good idea this week she thought it would be nice to ask all my blog readers to send a few words of encouragement to my Dad, Tommy Cox. You can either e-mail me them or leave them in the comment box or if you like e-mail me and I can give you his address and you can send them to him at home. I think this would really brighten his day to see how many people who don't even know him have been praying for him to get better. My Dad seems to be getting worse at this time the radiation is causing some serious side effects. I have a neighbor who is head of Hospice here in SC and she gave me some great advice tonight on how to talk to him and handle things with family, because at a time like this we sometimes get so emotional that we say things the wrong way to our family members. Please continue to pray for him and my step mom Alice she is wonderful to him and takes great care of him and I know she is hurting seeing him this way. This is one of my favorite pictures of my Dad, Alice and Brady (3) at his Firetruck Birthday Party!

I am praying for you also. "Be of good courage and HE shall strengthen your heart all you who hope in the Lord." Psalm 31:24.

Cyndi and Tommy,
I am also praying for you and your family. I know you probably don't remember me, but I have known Cyndi since the 1st grade. We went to school together until graduation, and I feel as though I know you. I remember how she always talked about you and what a special relationship the two of you shared. I believe that even though I never heard her say so, you were her hero, a knight in shining armour for her. I am glad that she is now able to spend time with you and I pray for comfort for you both. "I can do ALL things through Christ who STRENGTHENS me..." With many prayers and MUCH love, Windy

You and Cyndi have been in my prayers daily. I pray for strength, healing and comfort. I have so many verses that have sustained me during hard times, but I think my favorite is Hebrews 13:5 " For God has said, I will never leave you, I will never abandon you." With much love, Kim and family

I am lifting you in prayer each time the Lord brings you to my thoughts! HE is the great healer...the one who loves you the most....You are being held in His very capable hands....rest in Him...and please know that all of us are covering you in prayer everyday! Your daughter is so precious and I have been so blessed by getting to know her through this blog.
She is just such a sweet person!
She must be a direct reflection of you!

I pray for sweet blessings for you and your dear family!

Love in Christ,
