God at Work

Wow. I was starting to brush my teeth and thinking about the post I had just written. I came back to my computer because I wanted to add how heaven-sent and supportive so many friends, family and others have been of my mom and our family. That was too important not to mention. As I was about to post a second time I was amazed to see that my inital post had already been commented on by a wonderful "passer-by." Thank you Jeanette. I tried to find a way to reply to you, but couldn't. But if you come back and read again, thank you so very much. What a blessing you are.


If there is still anyone out there that still bothers to check this, I apologize for the dearth of posts. I found out in late March that my mom has cancer, and things just got intensely horrific for a while (I lost seven pounds in one week if that helps to illustrate.) I was also moving to a new house and closing on the old one right at the time we were all trying to deal with my mom's diagnosis, so I was in kind of a black hole/fog of non-communication that I am slowly digging myself out of. In any case, being in the new place (which is actually my parent's old place) is incredibly wonderful.

I am not being melodramatic when I quote this (if you notice the book that it's from, it's been on my mind lately, but this is very inspiring):

But if it were I, I would appeal to God; I would lay my cause before him. He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. - Job 5:8-9
