Just thinking...

Tomorrow Chuck and I are going up to visit my Dad. I am really excited to go - and yet a little sad. I think that this may be the last time I get to actually see him!  

He has lung cancer and is not doing any chemotherapy... and the last I heard - he only had a few months left to live. That was back in April!! =)  AND he is still here and I think, feeling pretty good!  

He is taking off on a road trip at the end of this month... driving his trailer across the country and into Florida then going to get to the Bermuda Triangle somehow...  I am really proud of him for wanting to do all the things he has always wanted to do!!  AND yet at the same time... I think that he just doesn't want us to watch him go thru the horrible illness that he has!  

We have tried to share Jesus with him... he has NO desire to even WANT to consider that there is a God...  =(    That breaks my heart too...  I HOPE I get to share while I am with him... but, ONLY GOD can change him =)   I know that!!  

Sometimes... don't you wish GOD would allow us to MAKE people choose HIM???  That does take away our choices... and I am so GLAD I get to have the choices...  but people that I LOVE don't choose the same thing!  BUMMER!
