Life, Interrupted.

The blog has been silent for a few days.  I thought last week that the flu my sweet son shared with me would be my greatest hindrance for writing, but that was the least likely offender to expend my energy and emotion.

On my Covenant Day, last Friday, my beautiful sister in law suffered a significant brain injury and has been in ICU throughout this past week.  She and my brother have four amazing daughters, from toddler to preteen.  I can't describe in words what this situation has done to my heart.

As I begin my Commissioning Weekend tomorrow, with all the pagentry and worship that celebrates this great milestone in my service before God, my soul feels beleagured.

At this moment in my life the most joyous and the most grieving intersect.

 

Hear my cry, O God,
listen to my prayer;
from the end of the earth I call to you

when my heart is faint.
Lead me to the rock
that is higher than I,

for you have been my refuge,
a strong tower against the enemy.
Let me dwell in your tent forever!
Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings! Selah
(Psalm 61:1-4 ESV)

 

 

...And Then We Were There.

Hopes Fulfilled.
