Almost two years ago my Grandpa Kercher and Grandma Liz came to visit us on their semi-annual trek across the country. Every other year they go from Florida to Oregon to Michigan (where all our extended family lives) and then back down to Florida. We were so thankful they went so far out of their way to visit us and we didn't have a hard time bending their arm to get them to unpack the several instruments out of their Prius to give us a little concert.
G'pops and G'ma are such an awesome example: they don't sit around and complain about politics, the weather, and people. Instead, they sit around and tell stories from their past, listen to your stories and laugh and smile...and play beautiful music. As they travel across the country, they take secondary roads and stop in small towns along the way, buying local papers and stopping in local coffee shops and chatting with the local people.
Right now G'pops is in the hospital. He's really struggling and really needs prayers. Please pray for my Grandpa.
