Dear Family & Friends,
It comes with tremendous sadness that I am writing this post, which will be short and bittersweet.
Our family has been struck with tragedy (not the beginning of a new year I had anticipated). As with any journey, I am faced with a decision about which path to take conducive to healing & growth. My heart has suffered an unimaginable blow and the numbness I feel is most likely the protective hands of God as He carries me through the intensity of this storm. Even as I’m typing these words to you, I feel the tightness in my chest struggling for every breath and the wells of salt water in my eyes run so deep I wonder sometimes if there’s an ending to this utterly painful despair.
To all of you who are reading this, I want you to know I love you very much and I would appreciate your intercessory prayers. I don’t have the strength to share details with anyone and really just desire to nestle in with my immediate family to find the comfort I know God has for me there.
Your comments and words of comfort are treasured and needed. At this time along this journey, I must direct my thoughts and attention to where I’m needed most. I am saying goodbye for now, but not for good. As I take this little sabbatical away, please know I will continue to read your blog posts every chance I get because your words are food for my soul.
I am so thankful for my God and so grateful He can take what is intended for evil and create something monumentally grand from it. My hope is in the Lord and though the pain runs deep, I do look forward with great anticipation to see what He will do with our circumstances…
Serendipity… this is my one-word resolution this year. God will take these moments of devastations and turn them into “happy accidents” & “God-winks” to remind me yet again of who holds the control handles of life… Thank-you, Jesus!
Love to you all <3
