In Which I Bow Out Gracefully

My dear friends ~

Just a few lines to let you know that I will be pretty much unplugged for the foreseeable future.  You guys know how much I love blogging and doing life in community with you.  But right now, my truest desire is to be as fully present with my mom as I can possibly be in this final chapter of her life ... and be completely available to the family who so deeply adore her.

I know you understand.

I've been navigating this anticipatory grief one day at a time for years now.  It's like a rollercoaster ride that just won't quit.

Yet more than ever, I believe that our God is incredibly faithful, His heart is kind, and His timing is trustworthy.  In the midst of the uncertainty, heartbreak, and weariness that have been our constant companions for far too long, He's generously given overflowing portions of joy, hope, and peace.  

Thank you for your compassionate words in recent weeks.  If you'd pray for Mom, our extended family, and the healthcare team who tenderly watch over her, we'd be so grateful.  

Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy.
Thou art my God,
My times are in Thy hand.
Psalm 31:14-15
