At the end of September, we said good-bye to my hardworking, honest, witty, music-loving, handy, steady, dependable Daddy.
I will love and miss him always.
These past nine months have found us on a private journey of struggle and sorrow. I have mostly stepped away from my blog as the story was not exclusively mine to tell, and I did not want to process it in a public way. As I have told you before, our God has gone before us and He guided us along the way. His paths are not always easy, but He works everything for the good of His children and He is always, always good.
I plan to tiptoe back into Blogland, although I suspect that I will never catch up with all that has happened in your world while I was away.

Truly, all of us walk through sorrow along life's way. It is a very real part of living in a sin-cursed world. Perhaps the best thing we can do with our pain is to offer it back to the Lord as an act of worship.
