JustFocus Update

How is everyone doing? I have not really been on Spark in a while and a lot of you have been sending prayers and well thoughts and wishes and I am very appreciative and wanting to let you know what has been going on.

On Thursday 9/16(the day after my daughter turned a year old..*SMH*), my wife's grandmother's name was called home to be with the Lord. The week prior to this unfortunate event and the week after were very trying and demanding on my family with lots of travel and emotion.

In the small amount of free time that I did have, i was trying to get caught up with my two jobs that I had fell behind in. On top of this, I was supposed to be leaving for a business conference in San Antonio on that following Monday(9/20).

After tons of discussion with family, friends, and of course ultimately my wife....I did decide to go to the conference on Weds. night and partake in it on Thurs. and Fri, before coming back on Sat. Travel complications kept me en route all day Saturday. The frustration led me to decide to take a flight to Nashville, TN instead of waiting until Sunday at noon for a flight. So I rented a car at 12:30am and arrived home Sunday morning at 5:30am.

Now its back to work....so yes....needless to say.......i am beyond tired, but I am still attacking the week head on and with all that said:


This incident with her grandmother brought up a lot of hard memories of my father and it was tough to watch her go through it...its not over but we are strong in faith and making it through. With that said.....please continue to pray for my family and I.........

    Definitely a great perspective to take. I have definitely walked very closely with GOD over the pass 8 months of her illness and continue to do so. Thank you so much for your words.

    Stay Determined, Stay Committed, and Stay Consistent

    does sound like you have a lot going on, what I find helps me is instead of asking
    God to 'give me' strength, asking Him to BE my strength.

    Blessings and congrats on that baby!
