The Blue Monk

My sweet Uncle Chuck went in for surgery today. He was having problems with fluid on his lung or something like that. Unfortunately, the prognosis coming out of surgery was worse than we expected--the dreaded C word.

So, the Blue Monk is the name we gave Uncle Chuck way back when I was little. He had a blue hooded robe that he would put on and come tickle us all. When my folks divorced, Uncle was really a support for us girls, and he is still someone I can go to when I need prayer.

Over the years, he has been a pastor and friend to me. His passion for the Lord and his sweet love for his wife and daughters has always given me hope. Please pray with me for healing for his body and wisdom as they move forward.

We're very sorry to hear this sad news. We'll keep him in our thoughts and prayers.
