Parenting is often a challenge. I have an independent, intelligent 4 year old who makes life very interesting. But this week has been one of the hardest for me. Josiah had his tonsils out on Friday and we couldn't believe how well he bounced back; running around the hospital Saturday, going for a walk on Sunday, but then Sunday night things changed. He started experiencing intense ear pain, which his doctor said is very normal. We are alternating ibuprofen and Tylenol, and using essential oils; he's drinking lots of water and aloe vera water. But ultimately, he's just in a lot of pain and that is killing this mama.
Please pray for my baby. And please, let me know if you have any great post-tonsillectomy advice. I just want him to sleep through the night; poor baby.

I wanted to post this in case some of you weren't aware that Dr. Tim LaHaye died this morning. Please keep his family in your prayers, won't you? He is rejoicing and is now with our Lord, but for his family and friends there is much heartache and sorrow. Let's pray that God will comfort them.
I first discovered Dr. LaHaye (like I'm sure many of you did) with the "Left Behind" series back in 1995 -- can you believe it's been 21 years since the 1st book in the series was released? I actually just started re-reading the series a few weeks ago, so I was saddened to see this news today.
How many of you have read the whole series? Was that your first introduction to Dr. LaHaye and his work? Did you have a favorite book in the series? Did a particular book or the series as a whole speak to your heart or perhaps interest you in end-time events?
I know for me as a young man in his mid-twenties that "Left Behind" captured my imagination and opened the door for me to look closer at the book of Revelation and at other prophetic books and passages of the Bible. I still find the subject endlessly fascinating.
