On the way home from the airport, I had to shop for ingredients to make Luke's food, yep it's that time again, I began his food process tonight cooking the meat for his formula. While my parents and I were at Costco getting the ingredients we received a call saying a very close friend of our family was in the process of dying and if we wanted to see him before he was gone we would have to head over the Hospital. We went in to say good bye, it was very hard to say the least. Ken Carter is an amazing Godly man, he was in a diving accident about 30 years ago that left him a paraplegic, he spent the rest of his life either in a wheelchair or a bed. Ken never got bitter about his life, he chose to love and serve God the only way he could, he would spend hours praying for people and his prayers were powerful. It was so hard saying our good-byes, he could not talk as he is hooked up to a ventilator, but he could still mouth words and the last memory I'll have of Ken is saying, I'll see you in heaven one day, then he began to sing a song, though I'm not sure just exactly what he was singing. He was almost unrecognizable as his body is very swollen, his heart is shutting down, but his face was radiant with the love of Jesus. I know that soon Ken will be rejoicing up in heaven running again, free from his horrible crippled body. Luke and our family has lost two of our biggest prayer warriors in the past few months, first my cousin Karlon and now Ken, both would spend time praying for Luke on a regular basis and I know that their prayers made a huge difference in our lives, which I'm extremely grateful for and am going to miss greatly.
Well I really do need to sign off, tomorrow will be a very busy day, but then what day isn't??
Love in Christ,
