Sometimes I can almost feel the cloud of witnesses watching me and wondering aloud what I will choose. It seems right now that my life is about me and my family just trying to recover from the devastation of having lost our youngest son in a battle we were caught unawares in. We were thrown into the deep end and had to learn (or find others to teach us) how to swim. We had our focus - our mission was clear. Now, as we walked, Matthew turned to me and said that right now, we all are learning how to live without Jordan. Making our way as a family of four.

Matthew and Joel flew back to school this morning to prepare for their next semester. Kim and I will stay on 2 more weeks and then return to? The boys were returning to a blizzard in Saskatchewan. Other than a no-swim flag on our beach due to the surging waves, it's still pretty sunny and beautiful. :-)
I have yet to encounter one stranger who declines prayer for their obvious ailments. Several have wanted to tell me a bit about their story and many have profusely thanked me. I still usually initially hesitate - so much easier to spectate than to participate in His kingdom coming and His will being done.
