Is My Dad Dying?

No.

Yes, he's lying in the Critical Care Unit at Baptist Hospital in Little Rock, with a ventilator breathing for him as he tries to fight off an infection and problems with his lungs, kidneys, heart, and blood.

Yes, at age almost-80 his body is worn out from serving Jesus and his family pedal-to-the-metal for 65 years. But he is alert and knows he is loved and being prayed for; and when I asked him, "You're not going to leave us, are you?" he immediately shook his head no.

No, my dad is not dying. He is going to live -- a few more years here, or forever Up There. Dad is a great and godly man. He's not just in God's hands now; he always has been.

God bless you, Dad!
