If I am your princess, then daddy, you are the king of the world...

Happy Happy Father's Day to my very special daddy!! Daddy, you mean the world to me. I have always been the token daddy's girl. I'm still convinced that my daddy hung the moon! He was the first man in my life and the first man I gave my heart to! And I will always be his little girl, even if I'm not so little anymore! He is the most caring, supportive and loving daddy a girl could ask for. He is always there for me. No matter what. And, daddy, I love you with all of my heart. And yes, I'm pushing 26 years old and still call him daddy. :)

Well... Here I am again, asking for your prayers....

1) My daddy had another doctor's appointment on Wednesday and they found a 2nd spot on his right lung. They are unsure what the spot is and whether or not it benign. They are sending him to talk with a surgeon sometime in the next week or so to determine if he will need to have half (if not all) of his lung removed. At this point they are thinking that whatever is in his lung is contained to just those two spots, but removing part or all of his lung, will nix the chance that it could spread. This is prayer request number one. Prayer for guidance for the doctors. That they will make the right decision.

2) My daddy is having a really hard time hearing this and is taking out his sadness, anger and frustration (and what I can't help to believe is pure terror) on my sweet mom. My mom is scared and sad too. But due to my dad's frustration, he's saying that he doesn't want to see the surgeon and doesn't want to go through with any surgeries. Please pray for his attitude. Pray for a change of heart and pray that he can see that we all love him so much and just want him to be healthy. I want my daddy to be around for a long long time.

**Disclaimer** All prayers are much appreciated, but if you know my dad, please do not mention any of this to him. He's taking this really hard and didn't even want my mom to tell me about all of this. He was quite upset that I told people the first time around, but I don't know what else to do but to ask for prayers. I know how the power of prayer works. I know that we serve a mighty God, a God that works miracles, a God that sees the prayers of His children, a God that loves and cares for us.

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. Psalm 28:7a

I leave you with this video of Point of Grace singing King of the World. I dance with my daddy to this song at my wedding. It means so much to me and I cannot listen to it without crying.
