I've walked through the deepest valley in my life ever . There were two times my circumstances overshadowed my will to live . It's at those times the Lord showed me his nail scared arms and said - I know my child I know .I am slowly mending with many long painful days to go . I want to thank you all for praying for me - it is only by the grace of God that my journey continues. Blessed be the name of the Lord
Re: Brenda. (from Carson's blog)
My father before his death used “dweller on the threshold” to describe his understanding of where he stood – between this world and heaven. This aural poetry from Northern Ireland is a vivid image of end of life days. Brenda is there now, standing on that threshold with the door open awaiting her to step across at the appointed time. Knowing how much my dad loved her, he will likely be fighting to be right behind Jesus greeting her entry into heaven.
Our family are all together now in one big sleep over. The love, prayers and care is beyond description. It is Brenda’s desire that she be able to die at home and our doctor and incredible medical team are helping make that wish reality. Shifts between all our sons and daughters ensure that Mom is never alone. There is nothing left to be said – just love to be felt, actually felt. It is an amazing privilege.
Praying for and with you, Margret, Rudy, Brenda and Carson.
