A Sad Day......

Sorry I haven't posted anything for several days but unfortunately a very precious family member passed away. He was my wonderful Uncle Danny who had been the best uncle anyone could ever ask for. He was much more like a father to me. His death was very unexpected and we thought he would recover from the minor illness that he had. Little did we know he was much more sick than anyone realized and that he would pass within days. My whole family is in shock and I'm hoping you will keep me and my family in your prayers. I hate to have to post such sad news on this blog since it is mainly an upbeat, fun cooking blog but I feel like I "know" many of you and want to share this.

Heavenly Father, I pray for Debbie and her family as they struggle with the loss of her dear uncle. Please strengthen them and lift them up at this time. Holidays are so difficult when you suffer the loss of someone so close to you. I pray that as they spend this Thanksgiving together, this family will spend time remembering and enjoying the time they spent with this dear man. Even though each one is grieving right now, you can lift their spirits as they remember Your love for them. May they sense Your presence in their lives and allow You to give them comfort and encouragement. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
