The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Stepping Away . . .

Dear Ones,

I'll be stepping away for a few days. . .


Sunday morning,
 I received word that a classmate of mine has passed away.


Funeral services are pending,
so is my life. . .pending, while I cope with this loss.


I covet your prayers for the family
at this difficult time in their lives.




"For everything there is a season,
and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
Ecclesiastes 3: 1~2
 

A time for stepping away.



Until next time. . .

So sorry. I just found out this week that someone we know from church passed away. The strange thing is that is the 4th person we know that has passed away in the span of 30 days, all different ages from different causes.

Oh Pat, I'm so sorry. I hope the funeral service can somehow be a time of joy at lovely memories as well as the huge sadness you must be feeling.

Wishing I could be there to offer real comfort,
