John 1:5

I have to be honest. My family is in crisis right now. I don't know what the future will hold but this past weekend we worked on healing. Life often develops in unexpected ways. Truths that you hold onto sometimes turn out not to be true in the end. Expectations fail to be fulfilled and daily pressures create fissures. It can be increasingly hard to hold things together and sometimes you simply can't.

I still believe in the power of prayer. Some of you know how my father died. At the moment of his death, a traffic helicopter owned by a local Christian radio station happened to be circling overhead. The pilot said over the radio that he was witnessing an accident and that it looked to be bad. He asked listeners to pray for the individuals involved. To this day, I believe my father was carried away on the prayers of strangers. So, thank you for your prayers and well wishes. You don't know what it means to me.

I may be a bit sporadic in my posts but I am here and I am reading all of your blogs. Thank you!

Marriage is a struggle. We have had a few serious crises in our marriage and have come out stronger and more in love.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
